View Full Version : Should I?

Just had W3O delivered and it is the version that comes bundled with destruction derby two. Thing is it's still in it's cellophane wrap and is literally in mint condition.

Am I going to waste a fortune if I open it?

If you want to play?, then open it, if don`t?, then leave it.

I have Wipeout3 Jap`s version sealed with japs price on it!;)

Depends on what type of "software/hardware", khm, you got on your PSX. :D
At least I would think like that.

Well I bought it to play but thought it was second hand.

Ah well I'll have more fun playing it then looking at it on a shelf.

well how much is and how hard is it for you to get another copy of SE where you live?, if it's not to much of a chore I'd find another copy, even one with out the manual

if its only going to cost the price of a few meals just don't eat for a couple days and buy another copy of SE

Go and play it !! it's the W3O Special Edition disk with all W3O tracks + 8 tracks from the 1st wipeout and wipeout 2097 remasterised
Hope you have time ahead of you to let you play the biggest, longest Wipeout ever !

Btw find a Namco Negcon controller : the best among the best

yeah, play it, the only people it will ever be worth anything to is people on this forum. It's also a great game

It is the SE version and I have a week off work will crack it open soon :D

I don't have a Negcon though, Im playing it on a backwards compatible PS3 so I doubt there are any that are compatible.

You should!

Imo the best of the psx wipeouts :+

23rd April 2009, 08:29 PM
Yes. I think it's the best Wipeout I've ever played.

I don't!!
I totally hate the hyperthrust... I wanted my Boost option :'(

Well I opened it and played a few tracks, think I've been spoiled by wipeout hd, Wip3out doesn't look so good stretched over a 50" plasma screen lol.

You have (in the normal edition there is, i think in this one will be too) an option to see it in 16:9. In the options menu, video configuration, you can choose "wide", or something like that appears. The menus don't change the aspect ratio but the races are in widescreen.

You could always run it with an emulator, rendered at full HD - that will probably look better than SDTV.

Sure, textures and polygons won't become more complex this way ;)

With upscaling set on it looks and play great, while I'm waiting for more WOHD tracks this is a great game play again...
