Trivia

  • If you’re confused by the huge variant image, note that Wipeout’s design aesthetics were ahead of their time, especially in the gaming industry. The Japanese / Techno look ended up confusing John Q. Public here in the US, so Sony had to redo the cover of the standard “race car on track coming at you” crap to help it sell the game. To make things worse, if you study the screenshots of the slip cover / new art, they only used images where there was concrete / race track like surfaces. The images showing the checkered floor, the weapon pads, and others were removed.
  • Because of the typography style, many people believe the game to read as “wip3out”, despite the ‘E” being clearly facing the right direction.
  • Link Cable Compatible.
  • The Ad for the game caused some controversy due to people mistaking the “nose bleed from speed” as “nose bleed from drug overdose or violence.”
