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

Gaming is designed to make you part with your money. Do it ^^ You know you wanna. jump in. lol, jk.

Really though, it's worth every penny and more.

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!

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.

Man, I'll take your word for it! I have no doubt it's a dream come true! This game was always meant to be played like this, I'm sure of it. Even back in 1995 I was thinking this because WipEout already had this kinda "feel" to it that is unlike any other racing game I have played. The physics and the dynamics of the airships - it actually truly did feel like you were hovering over the track. 

Anyway, so there is a VR update already??? All I gotta do is download it? I already own the Omega Collection. So all I need to do is just purchase the VR?

Also, a VR Arcade DREAMLAND has just opened up in my city here in Ontario, Canada but I think it's focused on shooting with friends. Like, a multiplayer kinda game. What the heck! If you're gonna do something like this, get EVERYONE involved and excited. Let us fly, take us to extraordinary places, get a WipEout like experience....heck, make exploration experiences not just some generic shooter.

Awe, I missed the part of your other comment you said you didn't have VR. Well, yeah, the update is free so if you ever do buy the unit it's available to you. 

I've seen some of those arcades, they look amazing. Those rooms that do one to one virtual to real spacial stuff is pretty effin cool. Lucky, here in Ireland there has been murmmerings of some big ones coming and the odd one has popped up in random cities cut nothing substantial or even worth a visit, more like home VR put into arcade space instead of the arcade space becoming  VR space ^^. Have fun.

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.

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. 

That's bullshit. Nx Gamer did plenty of detailed VR analysis already.

Oh nice one. I'll have a look at their stuff. Maybe it's DF's lack of interest or perhaps hesitation to buy the tech needed. Either way, screw em. Re watching the Wipeout VR analysis it is painfully ignorant of a lot of aspects, the most infuriating one being his lack to acknowledge full comfort settings.

Fuck! I redownloaded the whole game twice because it didn't start anymore since the VR patch!

https://www.reddit.com/r/WipeOut/comments/87sv26/psa_do_not_start_wipeout_vr_with_supersampling/

I just had to turn off supersampling. Please fix this, Sony!



I'm just happy to see Wipeout alive and kicking. :)



Some days I just blow up.

Now THIS is kinda big for me. Sure, RE 7 was an early standout, but what holds that back from killer app status on a personal level is that I'm a coward. Still hoping L.A. Noire finds a home on PSVR eventually.

Could happen. The Vive exclusivity is over, official Rift support is already here.
