The game is an amalgamation of craft and tracks featured in the many previous WipEout games. However, its ‘proper’ HD 1080p visuals and solid 60fps visuals have left many members of the consumer press amazed.
As well as optional Sixaxis movement controls, the title will also offer competitive online racing for the first time a home version of the game.
The original WipEout, alongside brands such as Tekken and Tomb Raider, enjoys the prestige of being one of the key franchises that established the domination of the PlayStation throughout the late ‘90s and early 21st century.
PS3 owners will be able to download WipEout HD for £11.99 directly from Sony’s PSN.
