    @blackwiggle you should have a read through the arrticle, it's a mobile game, apparently you don't actually race/fly yourself either, more of a team manager (guessing similar to football manager, but I don't play those, so don't know)

    Hope your health is doing well btw, glad to see you back on your feet

    Bummer.. Similar to the quick cash grabbings of Silent Hill and Kingdom Hearts. It's a shame Wipeout had to become a part of that.

    Cheers CIPHER.
    I posted a link to the the video and mention the CARD system in the PACER DISCORD page, OH, that did not go down well at the PACER DISCORD community

    I'm not exactly back on my feet, my mobility is the worse of my condition, but apart from that I can still play Wipeout .
    Dozed out of my face on painkillers doesn't help the reaction time unfortunately....trying to BEAT ZICO...AGAIN, I hadn't touch 2048 for over 2 years....and 2048 A+ challenges are a bitch.
    I'll do them eventually

    Post removed as I clearly over-reacted and the devs have since reached me and clarified the subject. Gosh I feel like an idiot now, but we all make mistakes.

    Aw bummer Hope things turn around soon for ya, I'm sure you'll still get the tricky challenges eventually though

    @Snake calling it plagiarism is probably a bit much.., plagiarism implies ill intent, which I doubt is the case here, it's most likely just a slip through the cracks of what was assumed to be finished/publishable material
    Amuzo games will be dragged through the mud for disappointing so many Wipeout fans as is, despite their games on the app store all being fairly well recieved, to add on top of that for what seems to be an obvious mistake is a little overkill

    With their previous games rating as good as they have, this might actually be fairly well recieved for those who actually enjoy mobile games and might not be as fond of (or even know) Wipeout, unlike us, with expectations much higher and in a completely different ballpark

    tldr: The game might be fun for those into mobile, but most likely not for us

    /yawn

    Oh well, at least Sony hasn't forgotten it at least.

    if we only could get the Omega collection for PC with modding support & Cross-play.

    I really miss playing the online on HD although I'm not a fan of paying subscriptions to play a P2P-based game.

    Luckily someone i know is developing a medius server for the OG HD/fury (which is a server used by Sony in a lot of 2003-2012 games) that should work on both OFW PS3 & RPCS3 with cross-play, so I will check it out when it's out

    Two positive takeaways:

    1) The obvious one: at least, Sony is still showing some interest in WipEout, which brings the hope of a future game.
    2) At least, the rumours were true and we didn’t have to wait for years (Ă* la Half-Life/Valve Time) to find out.

    Well it won't be a game for me but maybe those that play it there for the first time become curious about the WipEout console titles. If this things succeedes, it hopefully shovels a path for a console WO on PS5

    As we know historically at least, that SONY has used Wipeout to showcase any new major TECH advancement regarding Playstation, and the most likely, if any chance that we see another Wipeout, is if Sony use it for the new VR controller release [rather than just the VR headset, as that's just a upgrade]

    In the link below is the new VR controller and it's design explained.
    https://blog.playstation.com/2021/03...ew-controller/

    After having a look at it, how successful do you think this controller would be for playing Wipeout?

    We all know how well the Motion Control went down regarding Wipeout when it first appeared, virtually Nobody uses it, except maybe for Nose UP/DOWN.
    What would make things any different with this new VR controller ?

    I could see HAPTIC feedback ''Might'' be interesting with Wipeout, I imagine you would FEEL when you were hitting side walls, or hitting other craft while racing a lot more than you do currently
    Also being hit with, or even possibly when firing a weapon, might have a added depth to the gaming experience.
    But you would also get those same sensations if using a standard PS5 controller, how much those sensations would differ on the VR controller is unknown.

    The new VR controllers motion is detected by the new VR headset, not a PS camera, so hopefully you won't need to have your arms outstretched, or in some other uncomfortable position for it to work properly, it would be hopeless if it does, as your arms would be tired after a few races.

    My major concern is how long the charge would last on this controller, as I imagine it's not going to be cheap [Especially being a SONY product], so it's unlikely that somebody is going to have a spare charged up to swap over.

    Anyway, it's something to ponder.

    Just posting it again just in case. Sony is really trying to tarnish the WipEout name by making it mobile:
