Most PS3 owners making use of the PSN will already know about the popularity of the HD iteration of the classic Wipeout title. Well its official, SCEE have confirmed that because of its popularity, Wipeout HD will soon be seeing a Blu-ray release.
The single disc will contain both the original game as well as the new expansion pack entitled ‘Fury’. The release should hit the UK around October 6 and will cost about Â£19.99. Personally I always enjoyed the title way back on PSone and have always seen it as a more acidic Mario Cart for the older generations so I’m sure this will be a worthwhile title to grab for some groovy dance tunes and a playable visualization. Unfortunately I can’t as of yet comment on an SA release but I can tell you to check out the official press release below.
