Wipeout (stylized in promotional materials as wipE'out") is the first in a series of futuristic racing video games developed and published by Psygnosis. It was originally released in 1995 for Sony PlayStation and PCs running MS-DOS, and in 1996 for Sega Saturn. In 2007, it was re-released for download on the PlayStation Store, first for PlayStation Portable on March 8, then made playable on PlayStation 3 months later

Set in the year 2052, Wipeout immerses gamers in the high-speed world of anti-gravity racing where players can pilot one of eight hover vehicles through seven undulating, 3D race courses. Each track is peppered with speed boosters as well as power-up icons that reward racers with shields, mines, missiles, shock waves, rockets, and turbo boosts. Gamers can compete in tournaments, single races, time attacks, or with a friend via a link cable. The game also features a throbbing techno soundtrack supplied by electronic producer Cold Storage.

GAMEPLAY:
Set in the year 2052, players compete in the F3600 anti-gravity racing league, piloting one of a selection of craft in races on several different tracks. There are four different racing teams to choose from, and two ships for each team. Each ship with its own distinct characteristics of acceleration, top speed, mass, and turning radius. By piloting their craft over power-up pads found on the tracks, the player can pick up shields, turbo boosts, mines, shock waves, rockets, or missiles, which protect the player's craft or disrupt the competitors' craft.

There are seven race tracks in the game total, six of them located in futuristic versions of countries such as Canada and Japan, with a seventh, hidden track set on Mars.

Features:
Eight high-speed hover vehicles
Seven diverse race courses
Futuristic racing set to an electronic soundtrack
