No Wipeout for PS4! Don't think i'll be buying one then!!

102 Replies 6,156 Views Created 11-03-2013

OK folks, here is my opinion - for what it's worth! (Very little i suspect!)

 

I have always owned a Playstation - right from the first one! I can remember being amazed by the first Ridge Racer. It was stunning for it's time. But nohing prepared me for the joy of playing Wipeout!

 

The graphics, the music, the motion, but most of all ... the amazing concepts and gameplay.

I am not a big gamer to be honest, so i don't tend to own many titles. But i do own all of the Wipeout games, and i still play them all!

 

I still love 'Terramax, Koroderra and Sliverstream' on the 1st incarnation. I Love flying Qirex on 2097! - Even though i have played these games for many years i still never tire of them. And as for Fury/HD it is just stunning. I love everything about  this incarnation of the game.

 

Surely this is a sign of a great game? Something that has a very prolonged shelf life? A concenpt which still inspires gamers young or old?

 

In short, Wipeout has been as big a part of the Playstation concept as the consoles themselves. I think it is fair to state that Wipeout is probably the most successful, unique and playable game/concept for the  Playstation. It is more than just a game. It is ubiqutous with Playattion.

 

To not make any more seems ludicrous, given the success of the concept and games, and given the very extensive global fanbase.

 

So come on Sony! Get a team together - or the old team back together.... and create the next stunning incarnation of the series.

 

This may sound extreme, but i for one won't buy a PS4 unless a new Wipeout is released.

 

I only really own Playstations, PSP/VITA for Wipeout. All other games are just a bonus!

I'll still buy a PS4 eventually, but I pretty much agree with everything you said. Wipeout is an iconic series, and the visuals it would be capable of in silky smooth 60fps on the PS4... sigh.

Would it be possible for someone or Sony or someone to take the initive to start up a kickstarter campaign to collect donations from people and set a target to collect money to make a new Wipeout game for the Playstation 4.

 

http://www.kickstarter.com/

 

Revolution did this for Broken Sword 5 and got the game out so i am wondering if this could be done by Sony or someone to collect the money they would need?

Didn't Square-Enix also do crowdfunding of some sort for new IP?

 

I'd back a full Wipeout collection in a heartbeat. All the tracks, all the ships, all the weapons, all the songs, redone @ 1080p/60fps - I'd pay £100 for the game and run to town naked to buy a PS4 :D

Wipeout HD Collections Remastered

 

Comes with thefollowing all in HD and remastered to full 1080p 30 frames per second/60 frames per second

 

Wipeout

Wipeout 2097/XL

Wipeout 64

Wipeout 3

Wipeout Fusion

Wipeout Pure

Wipeout Pulse

Wipeout HD

Wipeout HD Fury

Wipeout 2048

 

Would you agree on this since blu ray is now 300GB per disc by next summer and people have 500 GB hard drives in there PS4 so all of this could fit onto one blu ray disc. And 1TB hard drives will of dropped in price by then and youll be able to get them for next to nothng. Sony could do full compliations of series  with other popular game series like Resident Evil, Metal Gear Solid, Tekken,and other great game series.

Wipeout is an IP still owned by Sony so there is no way a new one is going to be developed unless they themselves do it. Kickstarter is not an option.

Read my post. Square-enix did a Kickstarter or something for new IP. If Sony came out and said "Look, we can't afford to risk an unsuccessful game at the moment. If you want a Wipeout game, back it, and we'll make it," then I think people would back it :)

 

Companies like Obsidian have two new games coming thanks to Kickstarter, and these are the guys that made Fallout NV, South Park, KOTOR2, etc. Sony can, if they want to, go the Kickstarter route.

Sony are not the type of company to use Kickstarter as a funding method. If they really want to release a new Wipeout then they will likely use internal funding for the project but I don't see that happening.

I'd love a ps4 wipeout too, but I'm still buying a ps4 even if it doesn't have one.
Hopefully it'll happen at some point.

Has anyone said there won't be one? Sony still own the brand and trademark. The studio closed, but that doesn't mean there can't ever be another one.

Are you deliberately trying to provoke most of the posters on pages 3 & 4? :p

This makes me very sad. I love wipeout with a passion but to not buy a ps4 because of no wipeout? The only one who will be at a loss is you.

Unfortunatly.. i'm sad too. But for WipEout, I would do anything to see it on PS4: P

by imagine it! with the power that has ps4, imagine a WipEout once again with graphics at 1080p, 60 fps .. was a show on ps3, let alone on PS4!

i wonder.. why.. why Sony has closed Studio Liverpool?

Everytime someone from Sony Head Office came to visit and parked their car outside when they came out they found it up on bricks with the wheels stolen

I'm a big Wipeout fan too, loved it since the PS1. Gotta admit though, it spurred me on to try other racers similar to it as well. While things like Xtreme G were great attempts, they never had the classy sheen and art style of Wipeout, although, the sheer speed of F-Zero on the N64 made me think it had a serious contender for a bit - then Wipeout 64 came along and changed my mind again lol.

Anyways, to not buy a PS4 because you heard (where from BTW?) there'd be no more Wipeouts is a bit much, but then, since that's all you mostly play, I'd say fair-play to ya mate! You do what you gotta do! ; )
