WipEout has been synonymous with PlayStation since 1995, so it’s no surprise to see Sony readying a fresh bout of anti-gravity racing for the launch of PlayStation Vita.
2048 has been built from the ground up for the new handheld, taking advantage of its various control schemes. Not only can users enjoy the increased accuracy of dual analog sticks, they can also use Vita’s SixAxis motion controls to tilt their way to success. Even the two touch panels are used for firing weapons and accelerating.
WipEout fans can look forward to ten brand new tracks and a full campaign mode. Any record lap times they set appear on an online leaderboard and create a ‘Near’ challenge, allowing passing Vita owners to challenge their time.
Alternatively, they can take on their friends with a range of multiplayer modes, which work via both local and Wi-Fi connections. Up to eight users can also play across both Vita and PS3.
