I believe it's a game based on the TV show of the same name.
I am surprised to see so much crap releasing on day one. Padding out the launch line up?

Maybe this is what they meant by they're still alive and the rumors about them working on a next gen wipeout!

Ooooh yeah, forgot about that. I always just associate it with Sony. D'oh!
But anyway, there's not much here that makes me want to buy day 1. Or even first quarter :/

Actually the first 2 Wipeout games were released on the Sega Saturn and PC as well, the series didn't go exclusive until Wipeout 3.

So they were!
Don't recall them on PC but I do on Saturn.
And if memory served, they looked like a right angular mess.

Apparently it was also available for the Amiga as well.

It's not 'WipEout' Wipeout unfortunately, it's the s**tty Activision game based on the stupid TV show.

Solid line up, one of the best launch line ups yet. A decent blend of ports and exclusive titles. You can slap Rayman Legends on that for the Euro launch.
Right now, I'm letting you live. And I'll continue to keep you alive...until you've grown enough to become worth killing.♠

It has Aliens Colonial Marines as a launch window game??. Can I ask how long is this launch window as the console launches in November this year and said Aliens game has a launch date of the second or third month of 2013??. Or does Colonial Marines launch this year. If so thats great news as I have been looking forward to it for so long.

"In the UK the Wii U price will be set between £199 and £310."

Where are you seeing it for £199? :roll:
