Is every Wipeout this hard? Just when I think I'm learning, I ram into walls/other racers.

>Did people in 1995 assume this was going to be another 3DO?

Not that I recall, there was a great deal of buzz about the PlayStation. People were hyped for it.

>What did Sony do right that Panasonic & Phillips didn't?
Sony just csme along at the right time. You have to remember at that time, there was only one generation of gamers. We had all grown up on the NES and many of us turning into adults. Sony just seemed to have their finger on the pulse of the zeitgeist. They tied alot of the early marketing to young adult club culture - Wipeout being a great early example.

Sony made video games feel grown up. There wasn't the stigma of it being a toy. It was something cool and sexy. They were in the right place at the right time.

Can anyone else remember the wip'E'out controversy in the press at the time?
