    Question Which game is the most popular online?

    Hello, I loved Wipeout HD on the PS3, now after many years I have a Wipeout's itch and i've bought the Omega Collection for PS4. I'd like to start playing offline in preparation for competitive play online, but which game is the most popular online: HD/Fury or 2048? Where should i start?

    Short answer: none. Servers are pretty much dead, I'm afraid.
    If you really want to get into it, there are a handful of (absolutely ace) pilots ripping it up every now and then, mostly in HD/Fury. Personally, I much prefer 2048, but it's really hard to find a game for that.

    I think calling it dead is a bit much, but you'll usually only find people around EU evening times (fridays/weekends being better), but not going to lie, it is pretty quiet these days.

    I'd recommend focusing on what you enjoy more than anything and because of that;
    If you like choosing your ship based on looks/handling and would like to stick to it, then go for HD/Fury, if you're okay with being forced into a ship because it's the meta for the track/speed class and as such barely stand a chance if you don't, then 2048 is also perfectly fine

    Depending on what kind of player you are, you might find more enjoyment out of climbing the leaderboards (although as mentioned by eLhabib, the competition is strong, so it'll be a tough climb)

    I was gonna play this weekend because it's wo's 25th anniversary, then i realized free ps+ exploit doesn't work anymore.

    Paying for PlaystationScam (PS+) to play Online in a P2P game is the biggest joke there is in the entire industry.

    That alone is one of the reasons the MP isn't too active.

    I couldn't disagree more strongly. I honestly don't see what's so bad paying about 5€/month and receiving 2 free games each month, most of them actually pretty good. That, and tons of discounts has saved me WAY more money than the cost of PS+ so far. I honestly don't get how people are complaining about 5 bucks for PS+ and then they go out and get a cocktail for 10 bucks and it's perfectly normal for them

    Is it really dead? What a sad news
    Is there any hope for a PS5 Wipeout?

    5€/month

    More like 10 monthly the 5 euro is only applied if you buy 12 month sub. I turn on my PS4 every 6 months or so.

    and receiving 2 free games each month

    Most of them are multiplatform games that is a lot better played on PC, plus you don't keep then, and they refuse to sell it to you if you like it, forcing you to create a new account if you wanna keep it. Then there is Xbox game pass that has ten times the value of PS+.

    That, and tons of discounts has saved me WAY more money than the cost of PS+ so far.

    I looked at the discounts with double discount, some of them are more expensive than getting it from a regular sale on PC, and there is no regional pricing on PSN which makes it more of a total joke.

    What do you mean 'you don't keep them'? Of course you keep them. I have a library of over 200 free games by now.
    Also, I don't own a gaming PC so I'd play them on PS4 anyway.

    You don't keep them when your PS+ expires

    Most likely, the closest thing to wipeout you will see is PACER

    There is also BallisticNG if you loved the classic wipeouts but it's only available on PC (win, mac, linux)

    *slaps forehead* well, obviously. You don't expect to be still streaming movies when your Netflix expires
    I honestly don't see what the big deal is with 5 bucks a month.
