    Arrow How Many Still Play WO3?

    Hey again to all you forum goers! I was just wondering how many of you still play WipEout 3? If there are a significant number of you, I may just set up a little time trial competition, some fun on the old games!

    Yup! I still play quite a bit. The unbelievable thing is that when I was a lot younger I used to play so much better. But now that I'm used to Pure, Pulse and HD, it's difficult to grasp that drifting type mechanic quickly. It takes half an hour to really get the hang of it again.

    I agree, in my opinion it's the most F1 style WO game there is, requiring unreal precision and skills. Very hard to transition to on a dime, that's for sure.

    @ Johnny and vincoof I think most PS3's play PS1/PSX games. I know mine does (It is an NTSC version though). WO3 however has a problem emulating the music though. It runs flawlessly, the music just skips around (and I have a flawless copy in near mint condition). WipeoutXL works 100%, and the original WO is actually available as a PSN download for about $4.99 (US) or so.

    All that being said, I think that HD is my obviously favorite game from the series, but WO3 comes in a close second. I play pretty often (I still have a PS2 that seems to emulate it better). I think its the ability to boost whenever you want that does it for me, that and maybe the track list. I just wish I could barrel roll :/

    In theory, yes. As a matter of fact Iíve heard that Sonyís Gaikai will use PS3 consoles to run all of their PS1/2/3 games (though I expect WO games to be awful with Gaikai). Unfortunately I donít own a PS3 (if you can believe that), thus I canít rely on this option.
