Sony Corp. this week demonstrated Wipeout 2048 for the Playstation Vita at the Vita Hill Social Club media event in Los Angeles.
The preview build included an anti-gravity course with eight racers speeding over power-up arrows to fire weapons or activate shields.
Users utilize the X button to accelerate and square button to brake. Vehicle control was consistent at high and moderate speeds.
The final game will include touch functionality to fire weapons and accelerate. In addition, the title will offer cross-platform online multiplayer against Wipeout HD PS3 owners.
The graphics engine was solid at 30 frames-per-second. Tracks and vehicles were well-textured against illuminating weapon and shield effects.
Wipeout 2048 will be sold Feb. 22 as a launch title in the U.S.
