    Feels weird thinking that somewhere in the world someone is still making games for an old system, and even more weird that not one person says, "Dude, you assembled some staff to make a Wipeout 2 DS game??".

    Engine Room with Cyan, watching him learn.
    Some poor person had to program this. :(

    And just for a moment I dreamt this was the good kind of "Wipeout".
    You know, the one that's a good game.

    Damn, when I saw this release in GBATemp's RSS feed, I immediately thought about Wipeout, the futuristic racer. Instead we get showelware like this :(

    The show was decent for three episodes until it got insanely repetitive and boring.

    Damnit man this is just evil. Don't call something Wipeout if it doesn't have lightning fast hover cars. I'm gonna go cry in a corner now. :(

    the only awesome water related game for me is wave race 64. that was just too amazing.
    but since ds has minigames and movie/show promotions, we can say this deserves to be here.

    there is an reason why they still make games for the older ds systems
    the reason is : the game companys doesnt have enough mony to make 3ds games (just what i think)

    okay explain me something, you guys

    Bethesda software sues Mojo for *planning* to release a game called "scroll" (because it infriges the trademarked name The Elder Scrolls, or something like that)
    on the other hand, a game gets released with exactly the same name as another famous franchise, but everyone's OK with that?

    I guess it's because Wipeout is a popular TV show, while WipEout is the popular game :P

    That not that weird, actually. There are DS games scheduled for release into 2012, one or two high-profile, such as Devil Survivor 2. And it's less surprising/weird that a game like this would still be published for DS, since this is something that has a better chance of actually making its way onto Walmart shelves than a AAA game moms never heard of. There are a lot more DS owners who have haven't adopted 3DS than there are 3DS owners.

    Yeah, just to me it's weird because all these great games coming soon and they actually had to put a little team together to make this. I just couldn't imagine creating a game like this for DS while thinking of the great games like Skyrim and Skyward Sword.

    Who else saw the title and got excited for a racing game before seeing the cover art?

    Say original poster, what about people like me who think the 3DS is an overpriced piece of shit and are waiting for the "3DS Lite" or something before they even consider buying it? I still keep my DS around all the time... so the more games, the better. To be honest, I see a lot of DS systems being carried around, and only a handful 3DS systems. DS is still by and large the dominant portable, and will continue to be for at least for another year or so.

    I think it's a waste of time to wait for a new 3DS revision. Just get it and enjoy it. And they will probably make a 3DS XL, not Lite. Plus it's pretty cheap now. It's only a win win to buy it now.
