Oh my goodness this game looks awesome. I still have fond memories from the very first Wipeout on PS1. I got my PS1 on launch day, in September 1995, and I think Wipeout came out in November. When I first got Wipeout, I was totally amazed by it. Talk about next-gen. Wipeout on the PS1, when it first hit, was the epitome of Next-Gen. The Audio was absolutely fantastic too. If you had a really good stereo system, with some thumping bass, the redbook audio of Wipeout would give it a real workout.
If you play Wipeout now, it looks pretty dated, but believe me, at the time it was a dream. Looking at these new pics, I'm getting that same feeling. I cannot wait for this puppy!
