    I never play my Vita in public but there are a number of reasons to get one even for use just at home.

    Here are just a couple off the top of my head but I'm sure there are others.

    1. If you travel a lot it's a lot less convenient to lug your PS3/4 back and forth than it is to just toss your Vita in your bag and go.
    2. PSVita is cheaper. Not everyone has the disposable income to buy whatever they want.

    Anyway, I'm excited for this in that it's better than nothing. However, I have my reservations... In particular, the turning model looks really off. I would have preferred another WipEout game but best of luck to the dev team! Hope they can pull it off.

    Fayyette is a new musician. Rchetype and Wolfgun have been around for a while, and were actually heavily inspired by the older WipEout games. I often listen to their music when playing WipEout Pulse, especially Stranger. A shame that the songs outlast the races 70% of the time.

    EDIT: Are you using Km/H or m/s for speed readouts? I suggest the latter, as it is the international scientific standard.
    And how are you handling the playlist for races; one per level like in Unreal or Sonic Riders, or the whole soundtrack on shuffle like in the WipEout games? What I propose is a cross between the two, where each racetrack has its ownplaylist with the most fitting songs on it.
    That playlist-per-track idea is absolutely brilliant! I actually had that idea a while back, but i obviously don't have a game to implement that into.
    A song I'd like to suggest, since it was said on the Facebook page that the game was going for a slightly retro-future look, is Varien and Razihel's "Toothless Hawkins and His Robot Jazz Band." It's a blend of 1920's big band jazz and modern dubstep/dance music, which would probably suit a nighttime race through a Las Vegas-style city perfectly.

    you my friend are a genius and maybe you could make your own playlists with your music or the games music and you could set it for each track and/or event either way man bloody brilliant

    Remember that they are building this game for PC first.
    What might be easily doable on a PC might turn out being wonky in testing on a console version.
    Sort of like LBP, great concept and works fine if playing somebodies level solo, but every time I've played online with one or more others it's been a lag fest, which I put down to having to load all the materials used in a level which gobbles up most of the PS3's limited RAM.

    If they keep it simple it shouldn't be a problem, but if too many options are given I reckon it will hit performance.

    I'd rather have a well performing racer with no skin customization options, than a mediocre one with it.

    considering that pulse had customisable skins (oh I so miss that airlicker AG SYS) and didn't lag online, I would like to believe this won't be a problem. However, as you say, the code is being created from scratch - it could go both ways, it could be wonky as you say... or, with the combined experience of the dev team, they may tweak it to a level which we are happy with - I am trying to keep an optimistic outlook for this, simply because I believe wipeout as a title won't make a return to playstation anymore. Sad as that is, we have this one lifeline with FF... the fact that its a kickstarter project is slightly worrying for me - no financial backing, no real nada... it's an uphill climb for R8... and no promise of that barrel roll at the top if you know what I mean.

    Some sort of Negcon support (via an adapter) would be awesome. That's probably daydreaming but hey...
    Logged in after long months of not being around to post here.. really excited about the news.

    EDIT: Cold Storage are on board for the Music... now we is talking... Also, DUB FX says a few words about working with Cold Storage on this game on R8's facebook page

    Sorry we have been a bit quiet lately - just so much to be getting on with. Check out the new clip on youtube - there's a quick nod to all you guys on WipeoutZone. We are going to start ramping everything up next week - make sure you like the FB page to keep track (https://www.facebook.com/R8Games), and we will make the website available early next week so you can sign up to the Test Pilot Program :-) - haha, not the best frame to reference. I can assure you no alcohol was used in the making of that video!!

    In summary - thanks everyone.
