We don't need no stinkin' gravity. Along with F-Zero, Wipeout was one of the first racing franchises to completely disregard the laws of gravity, opting instead to focus on ultra-speedy ships that hover just above the track. Nobody has been able to ascertain whether or not these vehicles can actually fly like a normal plane, or if they're closer to something like a hovercraft, but either way...it's always entertaining. One of the signatures of this particular franchise is its smooth-as-glass gameplay, and we're expecting a gorgeous presentation from top to bottom with Wipeout HD. It suffered a few delays in 2008, but Sony has worked past the issues and it should be released later this fall. Great news!
