Wipeout 2 tumbling out this holiday

Activision launching new edition of ABC's obstacle course game show on 360, PS3, Wii, 3DS, DS.

Activision isn't being deterred by a single Wipeout. Today, the publisher announced Wipeout 2, the latest game based on ABC's physical humiliation-based reality game show. A Kinect-enabled Xbox 360 version and Move-supported PlayStation 3 edition of Wipeout 2 will join installments on the Wii, DS, and 3DS this holiday.

Injury liability waiver not included.

Wipeout 2 brings the TV show's accident-prone obstacle courses to gamers' living rooms with more than 50 unique challenges. The obstacles will be tailored to the summer and winter seasons, with players navigating snow, ice, and foam in addition to trademark challenges such as Sucker Punch Wall and Big Balls. Show hosts John Anderson and John Henson will again voice the action.

Activision aims to tailor each edition of Wipeout 2 to its platform. As an example, PS3 and Xbox 360 gamers will be able to use their respective motion-sensing inputs to hurdle snow or paintballs at other players while navigating courses. Meanwhile, the handheld installments will feature a pass-and-play hot seat mode.

For an idea of what to expect, check out GameSpot's coverage of Wipeout: In the Zone, which was released for the Xbox 360 in June.

Well... Studio Liverpool's last game was released in? 2008, WipeOut HD now they are working on WipeOut 2048 for the Vita. 3 years for a Vita title seemed to be a bit long for me so a new WipeOut HD was possible it's a pity we're talking about a ABC game..... Why would you call your swimming pool game WipeOut? look at this board, everyone is talking about the SCE WipeOut, one of the most polished games ever! the pride of the PS3!

For the last time, THIS IS NOT WIPEOUT. I don't see any futuristic racing. I see an MXC ripoff. If I were Sony, I would sue ABC for trademark infringement.

There is no room in the videogame world for two Wipeouts. This crap needs to died. This is like if they release a Family Feud game and called it Mortal Kombat. It just makes it so confusing even if it's not the same game.

It's at times like this where all you have to look at is the picture in order to see what's going on. Darn title...

As disappointed as everyone else here, although in all honesty, adding a 'Big Balls' mode to WipeOut racing would be hilarious.

why do i always fall in the same trap? i mean doesn't WipeOut have the trade mark rights for the name or something? because i think that they should rise a lawsuit against these people so that we don't get misled by the title again.

I don't understand how this would be even fun. You need a buddy to spray water and beat you when you mess up.

It's not to be confused with Sony's Wipeout racing game. It's strange that Sony stayed mum on that matter IMO.

I was disappointed to see that this wasn't about the long running series of games called... Wipeout.
