Greatest racing game series ever... really excited to see what happens with this. Especially since I thought the franchise was dead and Studio Liverpool was shelled out?

With all the crazy shit that's been happening (PSN down, SOE fiasco) I think Sony will try to go all out for this E3. Bring on all the big guns.

It's about time a new Wipeout game was announced. Consider the hovering, hypersonic, bass-thumping hype-train prepared for departure!

Huh, if that rumor about WipEout being 2048 for NGP Launch is true then...!!! I sincerely hope Sony has more planned for launch.

I PROUDLY brag about my Wipeout HD platinum. Bring it on, Sony. Some people like cartoonish carts, some people like playing mechanic, I like speeding down a runway at 300 miles per hour demanding both reaction and anticipation by my heavily stimulated brain as sharp turns and steep hills litter every fiber of the neon-lit track.

Registering domains doesn't mean it will be announced soon. Case in point : Sony registered Starhawk websites 2 E3's ago.

Oh man, I can see the E3 reveal now.

Tretton enters the stage. "We have a very important announcement". Stage fades to dark then

FWOOM

a pack of wipeout jets blast into the screen and the title WIPEOUT TRINITY appears, causing an entire crowd of faces to melt

Can't wait to be disappointed by them both being PSP games.

It's been a long time but from what I remember you must do at least 4 barrel rolls, and especially one when you're going up from the track to the high shortcut road (yes, you can do a barrel roll on that mini-jump)

Also remember your ship has pitch. Going down and then up on hills give you air. There's a bumpy road on the beginning of that track where you can do a barrel roll.

I'm a huge fan of the series, bought the PS3 a month ago mostly for Wipeout HD Fury and I'm not regreting it :D

By the way, I'd kill for a new Rollcage too...

Yes! Or 'Wipeout 2097' as we say in the Queen's English. The reason for not redoing any of the classics to date was that the assets are basically unusable and the tracks would have to be rebuilt from scratch, but UNNNNGHHHH. I could eat this up.

That said, all generation I've been occasionally looking at this Syd Mead painting

while listening to Autobahn and imagining the pseudo-cel-shaded, persistent-world Wipeout V that will never be.

WipEout 50 years earlier could be more... dirty and industrial. Not that I do not LOVE the pure and clean aesthetic of WipEout, but a more gritty and darker approach could be nice for a change.

I was thinking along those lines, too.

Maybe Sony are preparing an NGP strategy of remastering PSOne games in the same way PS2 games are being done for PS3?

Unlikely, I know, but a man can dream.

I would still buy the DD version though.

Everything about Wipeout should be fast, including launch time.

Will be interesting if it is indeed a prequel, although if it does take place in 2048, being the less futuristic game of the series I wonder if they'll keep the psychedelic game modes like zone or detonator. I would hate it if those modes were cut out, especially Zone.

Here's my I'd-like-a-pony wishlist for Wipeout:

• elaborate upgrade system "season" mode with parts for customizing ships/abilities, earning money, tech trees/R&D, stuff like that
• more spectacular crashes ala Motorstorm
• replay editor with YouTube upload and full camera control
• track editor/builder
• livery editor
• ability to form new custom racing teams (clans) online, complete w/logo and unique naming
• ranked leagues with full spectator mode

I don't think an "open world" Wipeout would work. It's always been about track racing with combat.

All of these ideas sound great, especially the seasons idea. I basically want Wipeout HD, same core and amazing presentation style, but packed with as much content as you can fit in a full priced retail game. HD+Fury were content heavy for a DD game but I want them to go all the way.

Yeah. Anti-gravity racing team life in a fabulous Eurofuture.

But it's far too expensive and risky, so I'll take whatever track-based Wipeout I can get.

Was thinking Trinity might just be all the PSX games bundled up for PlayStation Suite, but surely that's not worth a website.

psp wipeout is good stuff, but it's the intensity of the big screen, flashy visuals experience that makes wipeout hd such a masterpiece and i thought they'd abandoned the franchise on console after the sales of hd+fury. full retail, psn, hd expansion, i don't care, just give me more ps3 wipeout.

Edit: beaten-ish.

Would be great if we have environments like flying through deserts and jungles rather than officially made tracks. Would make sense given the official championships hadn't started like you said.

Like Pod Racer? Hrmmm...part of the fun of Wipeout was the awesomely designed tracks that twisted and turned. If they can mix those tracks with real environments, it could work.

sounds great, if they ever make it full featured like that, I hope people are not bitching about full price release.
