Anyone else downloaded it? I've got to say it's well worth the 12 it's going for on PSN - although I think I'd get far more out of it if I actually had a HD TV...

I haven't ventured online with it yet, simply because I know I'll just get my behind handed to me on a plate but if anyone else fancies a game let me know.

It's been getting very good reviews, I think someone said it was at 90 on Metacritic? I will buy it when I get paid on Friday...

And I also still have an SDtv. :(

I can remember playing the demo of the original Wipeout on PS1. It was awesome then and it's awesome now.

Yes I got it and its really cool; as you keep unlocking the tracks get even more jaw dropping!

Whilst on the subject of PSN, can anyone give me some ideas for connecting my PS3 to the internet? My computer, phone and Broadband are in the room directly below the PS3 but I can't put the cable through the floor (it's a f*cking old house, it'll collapse).
Please keep answers simple, i'm not really ITK when it comes to all this technology stuff.

Have you got a wireless router?

Not sure as I wasn't here when it was installed, but just had a look and it's got the little aerial thingy :) :lol:

OK i've got it set up, but it's having trouble obtaining the IP address. I assume it's just the same one as my computer? If so then I can put it in manually.

Nevermind, I got it completely set up now.
Back to Wipeout :)

The PS3 needs a separate IP address (for example if your PC is 192.168.0.2 the PS3 should be 192.168.0.4)

As far as I can remember from when I set my PS3 up, as long as you have the can detect the wireless network and have the network key (the security code that lets you connect to the network) the PS3 and router should be able to do the rest between them.

I'm off out to the pub now, but I'm certainly up for a game later in the week, say Wednesday or Thursday.

I've acquired the game now, and will give anyone a race, but a meet-up with all of us who have it would be cool.

Tuesday and Wednesdays are good for me.

Just played half an hour of it.

My eyes are ****ed after quiting on one of those "Music colour" levels.

So good though.

Free tonight although I'll be drunk. Drink driving is not the recipe for success in WHD.

Yep. I'll boot up the PS3 now so just send me a message when you're ready.

Online racing is ****ing fun. I'm sure Dan K will verify.

Plus, in the last race before you went, I killed you, went past you, yet you still somehow won. Offical inquiry on how this happened please...

Ha ha. As soon as you hit me I got a speed boost which launched me to victory. It's not over 'til it's over!

It is a good laugh though. I'd highly recommend going online with it to anyone.

I might go and download this one today. I've got to ween myself off COD4 somehow :rolleyes:

EDIT: Just downloaded it, and it looks like pretty good (even on a non-HDTV).

Yeah this game is awesome, especially online, being able to race in tournaments is such a good feature.

Incredible game. Bit fed up of playing complete strangers though, some semi-strangers from here would be nice!

PSN name is amplifiedAnt :)

I love this game..... but rarely play it.
It's cracking fun with the surround sound turned right up.
Not sure my neighbours agree.
I'll be downloading the extra content for sure.

Agreed. But I errored. Its out tomorrow. Along with some arcanoid clone which IGN gave 90%. Looks like I will be staying in.

Downloading + that arcanoid game too. Will review laters.

Most impressed. Cool new music and car skins. New race tracks offer variety but seem pretty simple to master. It feels like a sequel, not an expansion. Not been online yet but hey will have a punt ofer the weekend. Oh and the new eliminator mode is great; flipping your car around 180 degrees then releasing your quake...sweet. There's more to do here than the whole original game.

Shatter. Love Arkanoid? LOVE SHATTER. 7.99 + 4.99 this lot cost; great bargain.

Tonight was the first time I've played Fury online. Loved it, I must say. Hopefully be doing that more often!
