Rhythm says looking forward to it but doesn't believe the 1080P bullshit that Sony are shovelling.

Oh? What outrageous claims are the making now?

That it's real 1080p. I reckon that's unpossible with a PS3 due to the poxy video rendering device it houses

I don't think the 1080p thing matters too much because if it's 1080i at best and running at the 60fps that it's reported to then unless you have the visual cortex of a fly I don't see a problem.

From the video I've seen you'd be mad not to get it at that price.

Shit, all they need do is bring out a new exclusive kick arse shmup on it and I'm cornered: I'd HAVE to buy one. Shit. Quick Internets, reassure me there are no immediate plans for a Gradius game on the PS3!

QUICKLY.

PSN's getting that PC Soldner X, not sure when mind.

/No fucking help

As for Wipeout HD and 1080p/60... I reckon it will be. After all, it's not as if Wipeout is the most varied world when it comes to textures and geometry, is it? :)

Actually, I take that back - a PC shmup? They're always wank, aren't they?

So not a twat then. Even if you did try to be one.

Don't you dare.

Can anyone tell me why this is a budget release ? There was a big fanfare about it when it was first announced, then there were a load of problems, which seem to have been sorted out. It just seems a bit wierd that one of Sony's better known franchises has turned up for £12 on their download site rather than being pushed for the usual £45.

There's not much to it. 8 tracks (plus reversed) and a zone mode, plus basic multiplayer. It'll be a solid base for chargeable DLC

This is true. They're only marginally better than a 360

:-D

The 360's the worst console I've ever owned and the PS3 is a close 2nd. Dreamcast would be the top of that particular list but I saw sense and never bought one :-)

360 has delivered the most enjoyment but it's also the least reliable.

The PS3 is reliable and has delivered... what has it delivered? :P

Could be a nice category for the end of year awards there.

It's not a new game technically, only a shiny port featuring a few tracks from the two PSP games. Probably a taster of the 'proper' PS3 Wipeout, which I think was confirmed some time ago.

See? Told you PC shmups are wank.

Get in. No need for a PS3 now.

/avoids glare from wipeout HD

Nope. Not a single reason.

It was indeed confirmed. I really hope that Wipeout HD "does the numbers" so that Sony don't pull the rug out from under yet another game in development.

Does make me wonder though - if Wipeout HD can look that good for 12 sovs, what the hell are they going to do with a full-priced game?
