Wipeout HD Screens Show Pretty Hovercrafting

SCEA just sent along the first batch of official screenshots from SCE Studio Liverpool's futuristic PlayStation 3 hoverboard racer. Offering a "best of" selection of tracks that that spans the whole WipEout Wipeout franchise, Wipeout HD will be available as a download from the PlayStation Store later this year.

Aside from running at the delightful combination of 1080p and 60 frames per second, the game features eight-craft online multiplayer, tilt-sensitive Sixaxis functionality, and rumble support when combined with the upcoming DualShock 3 controller. nope
