    there's absolutely no shame in liking the movie 'hackers'. And yes, there are scenes where the protagonists are playing an on-rails shooter that is a close relative to the first wipEout game.
    As for a wipEout movie - I don't see any problems with having heroes and villains in it. Just please make it based on the first wipEout game, it has to be gritty and experimental, and it has to have Kel Solaar and Arial Tetsuo in it!

    I recon it should be an anime/manga styled animation, or a CGI rendered movie, I dont think live action would work.

    if movies like 'I, Robot', 'A.I.' or '5th Element' are any indication, live action with convincing CG would very well work. I'm all for it!!! Just don't let Uwe Boll pick up the idea!

    You forget that if it is done in CG or Live Action, there a risk of losing the simplistic visual finess which made the game eye-catching.

    Wipeout is not a single-player action/adventure game. We are safe from Eww Boll.

    I envision a WipEout movie as being kind of like a sci-fi version of the 1966 film "Grand Prix". Like a condensed run-through of a season told through several different perspectives. It'd be long, yes, but I wouldn't have it any other way. And it should be based on 2097/XL or the original.

    The intro should cover the unveiling of the first "ship" in the desert, then cut to title, then get to the film which will inevitably get nerfed because someone somewhere simply HAS to have a love interest in every film ever made, wether it fits or not... Hitman anyone?

    An Anime style would work, I guess, but... well... isn't that a little overdone now? I mean, there are other Animation styles, some of which surpass Anime imo... if nothing else an Anime artist would have a field day with the female pilots' boobs, they always do, it's like some weird form of OCD.

    I think that it should be primarily CGI but the pilots and key characters should be based on the person providing the audio for that role to make them appear more lifelike.

    A recent idea I had relating to this was that it should map the development of AG technology, particularly in AG racing including 1-3 races from each league, including Fusion's final race when the controversy is revealled to the masses and how they handle it. Then the revelation of the 'illegal' racing and the FX150 followed by Pure, HD and Pulse in the same manner as pre-fusion before including some developmental features for the next game in the series, to suggest the next stage of evolution for the die hard wipeout fans to think about.

    Although this is a very good idea, I can't see Sony allowing someone to do it, or even doing it themselves.

    "The Last Race" was handled sort of like this: Rogue datacast networks bust into Race HQ, find evidence that pretty much most of the F9000 was rigged, larger datacasts pick up the story, the raid gets filmed on the Jumbotrons, fans go apeshiat and the pilots are forced to abandon the race.

    For a less half-assed explanation from an official source, click hither.

    Yes, I think that about covers it.
    I think that that would be an important part of the 'documentation' of AG Racing.

    However, I think it unlikely that this great idea would ever become a reality. A great shame for many WipEout fans.

    If it is an Anime, I think the more favourable animation teams to chose would be the guys who did Appleseed or the team which did the cool animation for Kill Bill vol.1, but then again, I dont really know my anime, all I will say is keep it AWAY from hollywood, because in my view, they are more capable of screwing it up. Most of the design aspects of WipEout seem to have an Anime/Manga influence to them, so it seems natural for it to be an Anime.
