Futuristic anti-grav racer Wipeout is a great fit for portables. It was a launch title for the original Playstation Portable and it looks like the latest iteration will be a launch title for the NGP.

Wipeout 2048 offers smooth controls and liquid fast graphics as you zip around the game’s multi-tiered tracks against up to eight players on 10 new maps. The game also includes all the maps from the Playstation 3’s Wipeout HD and supports cross-platform racing, something I was able to test during last month’s NGP event.

NGP in hand, I raced against a gamer playing on a PlayStation 3 set up on a television directly in front of me, so I could see that there was no slow down or issues with the cross-platform competition.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get to check out two of the most NGP-centric additions to this Wipeout: The game’s ability to use touch or voice-activated controls.

The game will also feature new modes, a new campaign, cooperative missions, challenges and leaderboards,


  • ah…is this why they’re offering wipeout as one of the downlodable games in the “Welcome Pack” Sony package?
