    Default Where can I find a copy of WipEout 3?

    Hey guys,

    WipEout 3 was one of the games in the series that I never played, however, I have been looking for a copy for a while now so I could. I live in Australia which may be the reason why it is so hard to find.

    Ebay is where I found my copy of 3 and 3 Special Edition. Other than Ebay, Im not sure where to suggest looking.

    Pfft... Amazon is a lot more trustworthy in my experience. Try looking on there.

    I may also by myself a copy of WipEout 3, and perhaps 2097... If I had a PS1 or first-gen PS3 to play them on.

    Any time I've seen 3 SE on Amazon, its been at a ridiculous price. My copy from ebay is in near mint and works a treat.

    I got my copy of 3 SE from a special place in Manchester, top floor of the Afflecks palace is the retro game shop ^_^
    Sells nothing but retro games and merchandise and they had 3 SE in MINT CONDITION and for £30 it was worth it

    Recommend playing them on a ps1/ps2. You can use the proper controllers, and I swear there is lag on ps1 games on the ps3, it doesn't feel quite right

    Actually I tried playing a PAL[UK/AUS] version WO3 on a PS3 slim and it will load, but won't actually play, so avoid, if that is the console you intend playing it on.

    On the other hand, the also [ UK/AUS PAL edition] double game edition of Destruction Derby & Wipeout 3 Special Edition works perfectly on a PS3 slim.
    This is a EXAMPLE of the title you want to get.

    Check out the link below for resellers that have a copy ATM.

    Most will if asked.
    Hell , I'm in Australia.
    It's places like South Africa and Nigeria they won't post to, or increasingly to the USA, as Ebay has imposed sellers only post by fast post or something similar, but named differently.
    Very recent change apparently.

    I preordered mine... back in 1999. I was 15.

    I recall it only being a US and Europe release. It is likely that Australia never got a release. Depending on whether you are PAL or NTSC, you will probably have to import it from Amazon or Ebay.

    If you don't mind *hoistin' the sails-o-free games matey* there are a few really good PS emulators, but that would only work for you on an OUYA or a PC.

    WO3 PAL got a release here [Australia ] but the PAL WO3SE version only had one print run, so it's pretty rare to find it just by itself, you usually find it with the Destruction Derby double pack.
    I don't know why people seem to have trouble getting a copy to tell the truth, every time I visit Ebay to look for one when somebody asks, I find at least one.
    I just did a quick look after I typed that lol.

    There's one WO3 for sale in Sydney ATM

    And a WO3SE DD double pack in the UK that ships to Aus.
