PS1-Style Box Art Available For PS4's Wipeout Collection (In UK)

Celebrate the PS1 origins of Wipeout with some special box art.

15 Comments

Sony's upcoming Wipeout remaster collection will come with an extra dash of nostalgia, at least if you buy it at certain places in the UK.

Rather than the usual look of a PS4 game box, Wipeout Omega Collection features an alternate box art design. It's intended to resemble a game for the original PlayStation, complete with its logo and the old black bar along the left side. You can check it out below.

This is seemingly only available at select retailers in the UK, including ShopTo. There's not yet any word regarding availability elsewhere in the world. Some UK retailers, such as ShopTo and Game, are also offering a steelbook case for the game. You can see that in the gallery above.

Wipeout's origins date back to the PlayStation; the first game was released in 1995.

Omega Collection packages together everything from more recent entries in the series: Wipeout HD, Fury, and 2048. It features all of the tracks and ships from those games with enhanced visuals, running at 1080p on PS4 or a dynamic 4K resolution on PS4 Pro. HDR support has been implemented, and both the PS4 and PS4 Pro versions are "targeting" 60 FPS. It arrives on June 6 in the US and June 7 in Europe.
