    Default WipEout movie/series?

    I just thought of this randomly the other day, and thought it was too dumb to post it at a place like this, but heck, it's worth a try. It's probably a bad idea anyway, but it might be interesting too.
    In the future, what if they made a Wipeout movie or series, like a live-action film or an anime? You know, technically it could work. The franchise seems big enough. It would be nice to see a novel too - maybe expanding the Wipeout universe a bit, running with the science-fiction concept. Talk about the history of Anti-Gravity racing, maybe, or describe what it's like to actually be a pilot controlling a craft in one of those high-octane races. Sometimes the manuals give a bit of storyline text (especially Pulse's!), and the descriptions in the games border on poetic.
    Who knows, maybe it wouldn't be as successful. It'd be interesting to see how they would do that, though. So, am I alone on the idea, or would anyone else like to see Wipeout's horizons broadened?

    I see you are an objective person, assimilator, because Blixabargeld is biased.(And yes, I am also).

    And on that note, I run for the hills.

    All I can say is that a both games and racing tend to be poorly made in movies, bring in Sci-Fi and the results me be really cringey.
    Well, a quality team could of course deliver great work, as long as it's no Hollywood...

    I think the Wachowskis could pull it off. I quite enjoyed Speed Racer, and a film with that kind of oversaturated vision of reality with a plot based on bringing about the fall of F9000 could be really cool.
    Fusion, and the lore presented in Pure, provide some promising material.

    ideas for a wipeout movie have been discussed several times before... but I don't remember seeing anyone put forth the idea of a series.
    I think it could work really well as a cartoon/anime.
    there would have to be some larger overarching plot to the show, but you could fit some cool race scenes in each episode.
    Unfortunately, judging by most of the drivel on TV; I have a hard time imagining it happening with anything resembling decent writing

    They have several plot-possibilities if they were to turn it into a series, or even a miniseries...I wouldn't mind seeing the Burnston Burns 'balloon incident' which halted Icaras' development or maybe even if they went in-depth about the 'grey goo incident' (?) at Talon's Junction...
    Something creepy they could reference to is the fact that the people in the stadium at Basilico aren't actually real (I think), because the description says that they are 'crowd avatars' (like holograms?) and that Nova Scotia was abandoned due to some kind of outbreak. WipEout meets I Am Legend?
    The result? Speed Racer X on crack.
