I really hope alot of the talent from Sony Liverpool get re-allocated among the remaining SCEA studios. I fear the same could happen to Evolution Studios (creators of Motorstorm) since sales are way down.

WipEout games are amazing and it is a real shame the racing genre didnt embrace this as much. Still to this day it is the best looking playstation game to date. And the support for WipEout on the Vita was immense with the recent addition of the HD and Fury DLC and cross-play support.

I have been a fan since they were Psygnosis back on the Playstation with the first WipEout. I hope this franchise doesnt go to the wayside the way Socom did, a former flagship title left for dead.

RIP Sony Liverpool. You were awesome!

Awful, AWFUL decision. I hope Wipeout is not dead. Why kill off another one of the original franchises? Poor choice imo.

How long do you think the servers are going to be up before Sony takes them down?

Don't worry, they'll be up for at least another 12-18 months yet, and then based on demand after that. The servers are in London, they weren't maintained by Studio Liverpool.

Very sad indeed. There goes my hopes for 2048 on PS3 with 60 FPS. I'm putting my hope into Slipstream GX...or whatever its called. See yous guys there. Godspeed people.

Mud_Chan? Who let you out of the DS boards?

Also I see no similar games by the name Slipstream... even if there were, nothing's going to look this good again for years.
