View Full Version : Think Fast! W3SE on ebay, UK

10th February 2009, 02:57 PM
Someone's put up Wipeout 3 Special Edition for one lucky UK resident. I bidded on it up to £10 but whoever's bidding for it already set a higher price than that. i'd go to £20+ but i have no money right now :( so if anyone else wants to have a bid, feel free! Ends 11th Feb!

The twin pack of Destruction Derby 2 and WO3:SE is also quite available on ebay. Not collector worthy, but the game is what really counts!

I remember paying roughly around £15 quid for WOSE of Ebay. This is a killer purchase and if you don't have it then get it!

Lol, I just bought the WO3SE & DD2 double pack for 7 quid inc. postage on amazon... New! Bargain!

My old collector WO3SE got lost... I still have the case though :P

24th February 2009, 11:34 AM
Yay! Thanks a lot, FatScarf. Package just arrived. Only had the DD2 double pack before. Have the real thing now. :) And it's in great condition, too.

glad to help, if you're anywhere near as sad as me you probably sat and looked at the case for a solid hour before playing it :P

Well maybe not for an hour but it's great to own it - for me it's better than 2097/XL due to analogue control and with upscaling set on it's sooo playable on my ps3...

Well said. I found out about this forum a few days ago and i think its great for Wipeout fans. Glad to be a member of your family. I also won an auction on eBay. Please check it out: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260550926013

I agree with all the members above, Wipeout 3 Special Edition is one of the most rare & collectable games of the series.

I am also looking forward on testing it upscaled on my PS3, too! Cheers

Why not chekc amazon marketplace? http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=wipeout+3+special&x=0&y=0
15 pounds new,used 10 pounds...

Not worth it. The first game offer (9 GBP Used) has (quote):
"Comments: Case scuffed and has broken hinge, disc has slight mark but plays fine."
That means it isn't in good condition. I was lucky enough to get it in great condition for 12,5 GBP, delivered to my door.

The second one is the combo version, together with the Destruction Derby 2. (Quote):"Comments: BRAND NEW FACTORY SEALED! COMES WITH BONUS GAME 'DESTRUCTION DERBY 2".
Not collectable and easily found (and much cheaper) on eBay.

Some say the Game (WipEout 3 - Special Edition) doesn't have many differences with the Normal Edition. Not quite true, the few extras are in favor of the Special Edition.

Also, tested it on my PS3 Slim. It is upscaled beautifully, and DualShock 3 compartible, as well.

4 days left, currently sitting at £1.99 or ~$3.25 US

Most of the results are the SE+Destruction Derby combo, but you can buy them now instead of waging a bid war

Congratulations, man! You got an epic part of the WO series at home!

Just two more things:

1.) If you like this game, you should think about joining the official W3O social group. :g
It´s called Worship-WipEout 3 SE!
2.) The image you´ve posted seems to be too large. The maximum is 50 KB, the image you´ve posted is 87,83 KB. ;)

Here´s the 1. link - http://www.wipeoutzone.com/forum/group.php?groupid=69

Here´s the 2. link - http://www.wipeoutzone.com/forum/showthread.php?t=429

Enjoy this awesome game! :+

EDIT: Do you have a Negcon? You should definitely try it - it´s a fantastic experience combined with W3O!

Hi I have the original Wipeout 3 and it doesnt work on the PS3 ( it crashes when you start cross the staring line for a race) . Could someone test it out and tell me if Wipeout 3 special edition runs fine on the PS3 ?

6th June 2011, 06:08 PM
Yep, it does.

6th June 2011, 07:12 PM
Ah thats really good, I might buy it next time I get a bit of money, the normal Wipeout 3s great but every time I want to play it I have to fish out the PS2 which is a bit of a pain due to the fact I can save( and I have to go fishing :P)

17th June 2011, 08:30 PM
Kewl, as I got me some WO3SE goodness from eBay as well - just waiting for the game to arrive. Can't wait to play it on PS3. I could also play it on my PS2, but I'll take sharp, upscaled pixels over blurry edges in PS1 games anyday ;]
