    Let's just hope it wouldn't be like the DooM 3 novel; brand-new, book adaption of a game...but paperback and $5 at the most.
    Now, as for WipEout as a manga...

    A movie would be cool if they do it properly, and somehow I believe there is not a posibility.
    Anime series would be more suitable, my bet is for Production IG Studio (Ghost in the Shell S.A.C.-the series, not the boring movies!-). They can do nice plots and CGI mechanical elements really well designed and animated, with crazy but not senseless action.
    Novel will be also cool, expanding the backstory that made us shiver througout the WO series (thank you guys who are responsible of that). And talking about manga, well, I can help thinking in Yukito Kishiro (maybe too cyberpunk) or master Shirow.
    Just dreaming...

    In the event of a manga/anime, I can imagine the main character's involvement would probably incline towards AG Systems, and implement a few of Fusion's 'upgrade' features, with limit-scraping combat and speed-tech to boot, but opposition coming in the form of personal history or ridiculously skilled rivals...which would essentially be WipEout meets Evangelion.
    At this point, I can imagine the other teams becoming an afterthought. xD

    I honestly think the closest we'll ever get to what we really want to see was realised in Oban: Star Racers
    there would obviously be a lot of differences, but it would be a case of x instead of y for each bullet point rather than a totally different direction

    Default Next Episode...

    I've chimed about this in the past, but I thought I'd help pad the numbers for this poll. My original thought of a series happened back in the day when CG cartoons/movies first hit and started to dominate the landscape. Still would prefer the CG route, but reading the posts on here I quickly want to comment.

    There are plenty of stories to tell since the people writing the back story have fleshed out an amazing universe. You can concentrate on Pierre Belmondo's pursuit of anti-grav, the pilot rivalries in the first game, talk about the corruption that caused the downfall of ant-grav racing after F9000, or even those little bits as the game loads the track in Pulse. Any one of those would be would make a great arc for the series or a season. Or even take these points and use them as flashbacks. Could've been done in the F9000 era, especially with Natasha Belmondo.

    Also, I wouldn't litter every episode with a race, maybe have some of it take place behind the scenes like say in a garage. Show the pilots, mechanics or execs beside say a FEISAR. That way at least you've filled your anti-grav craft quota for that episode Whatever the case, I'd hate for it to be dumbed down for the kids so becomes a race of the week kind of fair.

    That said, I'm afraid that to have a movie or series, you're basically gearing it towards kids. I just love taking this idea and running with it. Wishing that in a perfect world they'd go with something a bit closer to what I was thinking of. Guess there's always fan films/fan art for that. Maybe even reading Medusa's stuff

    Bottom line, if they can make an anime on F-Zero, then Sony can do the same for Wipeout!

    And if they do make a Wipeout series, please show the bombing of the Pacific Islands or Goteki's headquarters as a cliffhanger Would definitely make me come back for more.

    PS - GitS : SAC was awesome!

    Making Wipeout into an anime would be the last blow to make me steer away from the series. Anime and the likes are abominations of mankind, in my opinion.

    I personally think it would work well for a Anime or Manga.

    The idea of a live action movie may not work, as movies based on games tend to be bad.

    Sadly as mentioned before in this trend that oban star racers is the closest thing to a wipeout anime at this point.

    Should there a wipeout anime or manga series i watch/read it for sure

    A possibly excessive sweeping generalisation.

    Dammit, I still haven't seen Porco Rosso. Love the seaplanes.

    Indeed they do. Horribly horribly bad. Some of the games deserve much better. Not all. But some.

    It would be simple, if they just broke down the concepts and plot of Air Gear to its core, turned Air Treks into anti-grav teams and did some background on the more...'famous' pilots (Natasha Belmondo ftw?).
    It could even be set way back, when the earliest teams were founded, showing the events leading up to or between each game - maybe each different 'episode' (in the event of a miniseries) or 'season' (in the event of a long-term series) as a different year.
    ...I'd still like to know how Burnston Burns choked on a balloon... xD
