    Default Wipeout 3 SE copies for sale?

    So after getting WipEout as a ps1 classic, I decided to complete the entire franchise in order. Now, I've completed Wipeout, and Wipeout xl. (I now have a nervous break down when I hear the words "silverstream" and "spilskinanke.") Anyway, my point is, I need wipeout 3 se. I've searched, and I cant seem to find any copies for sale. If anyone knows of any copies for sale, please let me know. Maybe an emulator?

    There's a few for sale on Ebay UK if you're willing to import, but they're not cheap.

    Silly me. When I posted this, I did so little research that I didn't even bother to check the UK amazon. I had totally forgotten about this thread until you replied. (exams are coming up so my concentration is elsewhere) Anyway, my new plan is to use a boot disk to play it on my ps2 slim. Does anyone have a recommendation? I've been thinking about gameshark...

    Quick question: does wipout 3 se have a language select screen? An answer sooner rather than later would be greatly appreciated

    Yes, the first time you play the game or if it doesn't load a savefile.

    Ok thanks! We've messaged a seller on ebay who dosent have the US as a shipping location. Hopefully they will ship it to us and we can have it soon!

    EDIT: the reason I asked was we are buying one from italy, and the case was in italian.

    I'm just wondering if the copy you receive will be a PAL /European copy, not a NTSC/USA one, if so you might have problems with it not playing back on a NTSC / USA based PS2
    Not a problem if using a emulator on a PC

    It will be a PAL copy, as se only came out in europe. I will use gameshark lite (which came in a few days ago) to run it. I have made sure the tv I will be using can handle a 50 hz signal. The weird thing is you have to hold all the shoulder buttons and start and select to boot gameshark lite on a ps2, or it will only play the audio. The only thing I am waiting on now is the actual game itself, as overseas shipping is taking ages.

    It came in today, and after some tinkering, I got it to work. My only problem is the screen seems to be shifted to the right and up, so that I can't see my sheild energy. I've tried positioning the screen in the options, but it won't go to the area I need it in. Any solutions?

    EDIT: Also, the music won't play. (I'm using my phone to play a playlist of this game's music while I race.)

    One would need a PAL PS1 or PS3 to play 3SE, correct? I've tried looking this up and that seems to be the case. Dammit.

    Yes you need a PAL ps1/ps3 unless you have a modded console that can play games from any region

    You could use a boot disk (I recommend gameshark lite) on a ps2 if you have one. You may have to open your ps2 to block a disk tray sensor, (as I did) depending on your model. That's if you have a ps2. Wip3out works on my ps3. I just play se on a ps2 because it is superior.

    EDIT: Okay, the screen cut-off is starting to get on my nerves. For some reason, the bottom part of the screen is cut off so I can't see my shield energy. (Disastrous) Also, the music won't play. (Not a problem, as I can play the playlist on my phone) I've finished vector class, and on venom class I need to see my shield energy to avoid being blown up.....

    If anyone sees anything that could lead a solution, please post it here.
