Regardless if you have VR or not find a way to play Wipeout VR, this is something every core gamer should experience.

I'm not the only one who is impressed by this either. I just went to tweet my thanks at Xdev and they have been raking in the praise the past two days.

Reddit has been taken over by Wipeout for the week with nothing but praise and excitement. 

PlayStation VR (PS VR)

Newbies to VR are reporting no motion sickness with default settings and for those of us who have our "VR legs" or don't get motion sick, turning off the blinders and setting the camera to the pilot in this game is a dream come true, even with the limitations of current VR this feels as if you are flying a ship in wipeout and turns the game into something greater than it was traditionally.The graphics are held up better than on TV, everything is smooth, crisp and the FPS is solid even at phantom speeds. 

It's the most Fun, with a capital F, I've had in gaming in years. If you can afford the new PSVR camera bundle price and this game along with it, what are you waiting for. Do it now, jump in. This is the peak of immersion and things are only getting better, week by week.

Digital foundry praised the port. As zero compromise.

It really is amazing. It's the best looking PSVR game and it plays great. It is definitely intense, but they give you a ton of options for making it more comfortable.



Bet with Adamblaziken:

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.

Digital foundry just put up an analysis video. Even though they only use the social screen which is disappointing. They should come up with a new way to analyise VR games than this, however it's seems to be great news regardless.

As a whole DF are almost ignoring VR. For instance they didn't do an analysis about Skyrim. Skyrim, big open world game , for the first time at locked 60fps on console + great VR adaptation. Not even a tweet.

But they praised the 30fps Switch port like if it was the second coming. And they are so in awe about any game that outputs at 4K on their beloved Xbox X and it's becoming  ridiculous.



I imagine this should be one of the games that should fully realize their potential in VR: I love Wipeout HD, but god damn it, I don't want to part with my money, even if PSVR got a nice pricedrop recently

I love seeing my good ol WipEout receiving such praise!!! It was ALWAYS great even without VR. The intense feeling of WipEout is pretty much incomparable to anything else out there. It's the WipEout feels!!!

I can only imagine what VR would do to this experience. I always figured that WipEout was made for VR, so yeah....it's probably better than ever now! I seriously gotta try this, at any cost!

PSVR recieved to Killer app updates yesterday. Wipeout VR is a blast, and offers the full Wipeout expereince. And now Gran Turismo Sport is a propper VR title, that you can actually earn Cash and Expereince in to unlock new content, without ever having to play the non VR mode.

If you are a huge fan of Racing or Just love driving around, PSVR is now a must own platform. Between Wipeout, GTS, Driveclub, and Dirt Rally you have a nice selection of next gen racing expereinces, that will blow away anything you have ever expereinced before.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

GT sport is far from a full VR title. They have a lot of work still to do. But yeah, Wipeout is indeed a blast.

It's crazy cool indeed, I'm a long time Wipeout fan and this has elevated the gameplay to such a degree that it makes other singleplayer focused, arcade racers look like crap. The Multiplayer is still a little on the limited side, progression wise imo but if it's your thing, now is the time while those servers are hot and ready. Delete your save and start over in VR, like many are saying, it is a dream come true.

Had a look through their stuff. They made it pretty clear they can't judge the actual VR, it's no wonder they don't. Such a pity, I'd love to see some comparisons between 60 to 120 interlooped games and the traditional 30 or 60 fps version.
