Damn, would you look at that thing? Those of a certain age will no doubt be smashed in the face by a wave of nostalgia upon viewing these pictures - and rightly so. Sony has revealed that pre-ordering the upcoming WipEout: Omega Collection at specific shops will snag you a gorgeous original PlayStation-style sleeve. Seriously though, how cool is this?
Would you love to have this sitting on your shelf? Try not to wipe yourself out in the comments section below.
I love it!!!! Too bad this is not the normal edition and only limited to some shops
I pre-ordered this as soon as I saw it, its beautiful!
God I wish some of these were available in America. I know Wipeout is a much bigger series in the UK, but still.
Nice enough, but IMO this is a digital game if ever there was one.
@kyleforrester87 Me and @get2sammyb totally agree. Definitely the kind of game you have on your hard drive so you can dive in with the least effort possible.
@kyleforrester87 Yep, and therein lies the dilemma.
Stay on the shelf and collect dust? No thanks would rather buy digital.
@get2sammyb @ShogunRok Yeah..Driveclub (Bikes), Trials...this..
sorry but i fanboyed out for a second there
@get2sammyb @ShogunRok @kyleforrester87 I buckled and ordered the steelbook edition. I still like having a physical games collection, although I'll admit that I have far fewer games on disc this generation.
Really excited for WipEout
That is pretty cool, although mainly on the digital tip these days.
well what are those shops? eurogamer doesn't say either.
That is one nice box art, it would be nice if this was the normal edition for everyone and not a pre-order one.
@manu0 I've been doing a bit of digging on this, because there seems to be some confusion as to where and how this can be bought.
I've found three sites so far that have it on display, namely base.com, 365games.co.uk and ozgameshop.com. If you Google WipEout Omega classic sleeve, you'll see all three on the first page.
I personally pre-ordered WipEout Omega Collection from GAME's website. I contacted them this morning regarding the PS1 sleeve and they were adamant that I will be getting it in addition to the steelbook and some PS4 themes, despite their site not showing the new sleeve at all. I also just raised the subject with Amazon customer service and they knew nothing about it.
Hopefully Sony or the developer will step in and clarify the situation. I did ask Sony XDEV on Twitter where people can buy this but they've yet to reply
I want the special version with the floating ship, seriously that thing is really cool
This is beautiful! I have preordered the digital version for practical reasons as many already stated though
I get the whole immediacy of getting digital but a PS1 case!!!
Damn it. So now I want this, the steelbook, the normal release and the digital one as well!
@manu0 @Quintumply Seems to be on shopto.net as well.
I really wish America would get something like this. If Crash doesn't a retro cover, I'll riot.
@ShogunRok @manu0 Yeah, XDEV have been providing links to various retailers on Twitter
Those old PS1 jewel cases shatter when stepped on... not that I would know anything about that.
I didn't know how much I needed this. I would gladly pay for retro style covers for other games. A shame it isn't a reversible cover though.
I dont even like Wipeout, but that cover alone is pure awesome in solid form.
