Wipeout Pure on PSP

Wipeout Pure Screen Shots

Wipeout Pure is a Racing game available on the PSP. It can be played in Firstperson Competitive modes.

Wipeout Pure is a Racing game. Racing games, although sometimes seen as a sporting sub category, are a well established video game genre in their own right.

Wipeout Pure can be played in a Firstperson mode. First Person games view the world from the eyes of the in-game character. You don't see the character themselves apart from their hands, gun or possibly feet as in Mirror's Edge. Because of the imediacy of the experience and sheer volume of visual information the player is offered First Person games lend themselves to the shooting genre. The FPS view enables players to immerse themselves in the experience and react quicker to events in the game. Other games have used a first person view to deliver an unusual perspective on an old genre - Mirror's Edge for example delivers a Platforming genre through a First Person view.

Wipeout Pure can be played in a Competitive mode. Competitive Multiplayer games provide experiences where players compete against each other and the computer. Obviously lending itself to sports and team games, these competitive engagements have also dominated the shooting and fighting genres because of the direct combat and expertise involved in each. Although these games were originally played in a split screen style, more recently they are played online via services such as PlayStation Network, Xbox Live and the Nintendo Wireless Connection.

Wipeout was first released on the Playstation 1 in the lat 90's and became famous for demonstrating how to successfully mix two youth cultures - clubbing and gaming. The hover racing game spawn many follow ups, music albums and merchandise as it became the cool kid's racing franchise of choice.

Wipeout has remained exclusive to the Playstation brand and since then appeared on the Playstation 2, PSP and soon arrives in HD on the Playstation 3.
