It has been awhile since weve heard from the Wipeout series. The most recent release, Wipeout Fusion for the PlayStation 2, was released back in 2002, and it didnt really capture most of the magic that made the previous Wipeout games--specifically Wipeout XL--such smash hits. Now, Sony is planning to release a new Wipeout game on its new portable system, the PSP.
Footage of the new Wipeout game was displayed at Sonys pre-E3 press conference. Though not much footage was shown, the game looked reasonably solid, showing a typical group of Wipeout-styled racers screaming down the track. The game looked better than your average PlayStation game, but much of the games textures didnt look so hot. Considering that the PSP wont be out until next year and that next to no details are available on Wipeout, its safe to assume that the game is still very much a work in progress.
Well have more on the PSPs new Wipeout game as it becomes available.
