Every time I roll over one of these things I feel cheated that I didn't pick up mines or a speed boost or something.
I miss that game. Looks like no port to a current platform besides the PlayStation Vita is forthcoming as the studio that made it was recently shut down.
Is there anything that comes close to Wipeout in terms of flow, speed, music, and design?
I recently picked up a PS2 at a garage sale and a Negcon controller on eBay so that I could play the game again. Sooo smoooooth.
I have whatever PS3 version it is that came out in 2009-ish, and it's very faithful to the original. It's basically the same game with better graphics and not-as-good music.

Adblock nonplus won me over recently.
