Ah the classics. As much as we’re all about moving forward and looking to the future we always come back to the classics. WipEout, the futuristic racing combat game that made its debut on the original PlayStation way back in 1995. Since then it has become synonymous with the PlayStation name, appearing on all PlayStation format up until now.
