    multibodydynamics kindly provided the PKG files contained on the press kit. Unfortunately, and as could be expected, it's a no go...

    Thanks anyways, was worth a try!

    Can you send me the PKG files?

    What do you have in mind?

    I've compared them to the retail files and they're strictly the same

    Don't suppose anyone else is considering parting with their press kit?

    I'm sorry to disappoint *clings onto his press kit* d:

    Is it for a collection you have, or for the data on it?

    haha, that's okay Cipher. I think I have the data archived somewhere just for posterity sake, but after it just to ogle at

    Sorry for necroposting, but I'd also be looking to buy one of those, in case somebody wants to sell.

    There's one available on ebay since a couple days, but it's priced very unattractively, even more so for the condition it's in.
    Linky: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WipeOut-H...e/254164628069

    Oh and it's in the US too, so be aware of import taxes, as they'd add a big chunk on top!

    Yes, that price is very unattractive. What's the rough price these go for (I know this is highly subjective, but ballpark figure would be nice), and how often do these appear on eBay?

    Also, this is not the version that includes the pre-epilepsy zone mode, right? Is it more or less identical to the initial PSN release?

    Cool

    The first one I bought was listed for 250 but the seller was willing to negotiate and we settled on 180 + 20 shipping in the end. At the time (2015) that was 285 (Shows what a show the brexit is..)
    I bought a second one in September 2017 for 240 + 8.95 shipping (the first one was in mediocre shape, this one was pristine), I could've purchased it for less, but had quite a few back and forth messages with the guy who needed the money to resolve personal problems, friendly guy so offered him the 240 This was through a collectors forum.
    I've also had 2 people on this forum contact me through PMs offering to sell a Wipeout HD Press kit.
    1 of them said they'd be willing to part from it for 175 (which was a good price), but I had already bought my first press kit and didn't want to spend that much money again, they ended up selling it to another forum member on here, unfortunately however, that same item then ended up on ebay for a more expensive price
    The other person I kindly responded not being interested as I already owned 2.

    In December 2017 another one showed up on ebay that went for 153 in an auction (Also in great shape)
    In march this year (2019) another one showed up, listed for 300$ with location stating Sofia, Bulgaria, which was the first one I had seen since December 2017, it was in pretty rough shape though.

    The newly listed one isn't really worth it's asking price (in my opinion), and then I haven't even considered the condition, but this is up to yourself to decide. This same item however also showed up a couple of months back on ebay UK with location also stating Sofia, Bulgaria (different item, but same seller as the one from march), it was listed with a price of 450 which dropped to 350 after a couple of weeks, but also had the "make offer" option enabled, so it could very well be that this new listing is just re-selling said item for a higher price, which is unfortunately common on ebay

    As you can see, prices vary wildly with these, but given enough time, I'm sure a new good deal will pop up. That does however mean you'll need to regularly check ebay for new listings (and with regularly, I mean every couple of days, which can become a pain with the amount of items containing "wipeout" in their title (you don't want to make the search too specific, or you'll miss out on some listings))
    Hope this information is useful and you manage to snag yours!

    Edit: Oh and no, this is not the one that failed the epilepsy tests, pretty much just the base game and that cool little usb card ;-)
