UPDATE: Please be aware that all DLC will appear once the WipEout 2048 Online Pass is installed. For those that already have the Online Pass installed, you should have no problem seeing the DLC.

WipEout 2048 WipEout HD Add-On Pack

PS Vita owners, get those engines ready: WipEout HD and Fury expansion packs are set to hit PS Vita today. For the first time ever, the most jaw-dropping, adrenaline-fueled anti-gravity racers combine — WipEout HD Fury and WipEout 2048 are together at last! For those of you who are fans of WipEout HD on the PS3 we have some great news for you: WipEout HD and WipEout HD Fury have been reimagined for PS Vita and are ready to be unleashed as expansion packs for WipEout 2048. Now you can experience the freedom of WipEout HD Fury on PS Vita and compete against pilots across the world whenever you want, wherever you are.

Starting today, two new WipEout 2048 DLC packs will be available for PS Vita on PlayStation Store. The first pack is the “WipEout 2048 WipEout HD Add-On Pack” for $7.99, which includes the full single-player WipEout HD campaign mode and all of the WipEout HD online multiplayer tracks. With 12 new tracks for your PS Vita (including eight reverse tracks), 12 additional ships, and a Zone Mode Ship, you’ll be put to the test after conquering WipEout 2048. As an added bonus, you’ll have access to an additional 12 crossplay tracks outside of the original four tracks included in WipEout 2048 for simultaneous multiplayer action on your PS3 and PS Vita.

  • This is a pretty good offer, thanks guys!

  • BurntOrange32

    Will these finally add a create-a-race feature to 2048?

    Because I would absolutely love that…

  • guitarded77

    I don’t understand…. I have WipeOut HD and Fury on my PS3, so can I download WipeOut 2048 on my Vita for free??? Or is it the DLC which is free???

    • Michael Pulst

      Hiya guitarded77. The Vita dlc equivalent is free if you have the PS3 version of that DLC. So since you mentioned you have Wipeout HD and the Fury add-on on PS3, you can download both WipEout 2048 dlc packs for free. Hope that helps clear it up. :)

  • JesteR1701one

    OMG i cant wait to play these tracks on my Vita. Great news!

  • This is fantastic, you guys rock.

  • these were supposed to be free if you owned wipeout on ps3 and vita, now youre charging after that long wait? wow sony…….wow. if youre trying to get me to sell my ps3 and vita, its working

  • angibri2000

    @guitarded77
    I believe they only mean the DLC will be free so if you don’t have Wipeout 2048 you can go buy it and get HD/Fury DLC for free. This is a great deal, I got the PS3 versions when I got Wipeout 2048 upon launch but I haven’t got back to it as most of my gaming as been in Vita lately but now with this DLC I can actually play those courses on the road for FREE! Thank you much Sony! =)

  • Awesome. Thank you guys very much. Been waiting for this DLC.

  • @6 RXL209

    Chill, and read the last 2 paragraphs again. If you own 2048 on Vita and HD on PS3, then the DLC is free.

  • If I buy WipEout HD/Fury right now for the PS3 I’ll be getting the Vita DLC for free when it drops tonight? Awesome!

  • Finally~ been waiting for these packs to release.

  • ok i don’t understand i own all 3 games so i don’t need to buy the DLC because i can get Wipeout HD and Fury free on my vita? i love the DLC support but one thing i dont like is that you divide the community, i thought this DLC was supposed to be free and San Diego Studios take note this is a racing game with head to head online multiplayer and cross platform play and now DLC and you guys haven’t even released an online multiplayer patch, shame on you.

  • snakeeyes211

    So if I own wipeout HD and the Fury add-on. I get the Vita versions of it for free ?

    • Michael Pulst
      Michael Pulst

      Correct! You will be able to download the WipEout 2048 dlc for free because you own Wipeout HD and Fury on the PS3. The DLC will be available when the store updates later today. Have fun!

  • at 13 thats what i want to know too , i own all 3 games.

  • oh and i know this is off topic but Nihilistic needs to release 3 more FREE maps , an online co op mode and fix some online multiplayer issues on resistance burning skies and san diego studios well you already know what we want lol

  • All we need now is Wipeout 2048 as an expansion for Wipeout HD on PS3!

  • Giving those who already have Fury and HD on the PS3 these maps for the Vita for free is fantastic! Way to reach out to your base and keep us appreciative!

  • WilburMonkey

    So excited for this! How much space does the DLC take up on the Vita? I only have an 8GB card and this seems like a lot of (awesome) content.

    Also, if I have WipeOut on a game card, does the DLC get stored there or on the memory card? I have always been confused about that.

    • Michael Pulst
      Michael Pulst

      Howdy Wilbur. When you download the DLC it will be stored on your removable media card. It will be a bit under 600MB for both dlc packs.

  • MakoSOLIDER

    This is great and all but I would have liked to have seen cross trophy support then so I cud earn trophies for systems. Why redo all the SUPER HARD WORK getting trophies in WipEout HD?

    • Ami Nakajima
      Ami Nakajima

      The trophies are slightly different to the ones in the original games. Check them out :)

  • just awesome, really appreciate this guys

  • futureproof2011

    According to Ami, the file sizes are as follows:

    “The WipEout HD Game Pack is 297MB. WipEout HD Fury Game Pack is 265MB and the WipEout Complete Game Pack should be around 562MB”

    -via EU blog-

  • That is sweet!

    Question, are there any plans to add AR to this game?

    • Ami Nakajima
      Ami Nakajima

      Not this time, focus was on rewarding you guys with free expansions

  • Absolutely incredible!

  • Man, people! How much clearer can “For those of you who already own WipEout HD or WipEout HD Fury on your PS3, you can automatically download the PS Vita versions for free!” be!?! Yes, they are free if you own them! And if you’re someone that DOES need to buy the packs (which are only $12.99 if you don’t own the games already on PS3) you can then download them on PS3 as well.

  • Thank you Sony. This is how it’s done.

  • Thank you based Sony!

  • Thank you guys. I was getting worried on this update because it hasn’t been brought up since it was promised. This is why I bought 2048! This is how it should be done!

  • Thanks for the heads up Ami.

    Been wondering when this was coming out.

  • Old_PopTarts

    Has anyone been able to DL this yet?? It’s not in the store and my Download List still says “Cannot DL to a PS Vita system”

    • Michael Pulst
      Michael Pulst

      Heya Old_PopTarts, don’t worry, it will be available on the store when it gets updated today. :)

  • great news …i think sony should be doing this more and more with future games

  • @29: You have to wait for the store to be updated.

    And no people, you don’t get Wipeout 2048 free. smh, you’ll just get the DLC packs for HD/Fury on Vita (for 2048) free if you already own them on the PS3.

    It’s not hard to understand.

  • JazzSaxPlayer

    This is just fantastic!! I hate how the store updates later in the afternoon on Tuesday. I’ll be on edge all day until this releases!!

  • Unbreakable21

    Why does Europe have all these amazing sales for the vita and not the US?

  • That’s a fantastic deal. I owe HD and HD Fury on the PS3 and now I am considering getting Wipeout 2048 because of the extra content. Awesome! @13: Being ignorant makes you look bad!

  • Why not release the WipEout 2048 tracks for WipEout HD? There didn’t seem to be a lot of players on WipEout HD when I was looking for a multiplayer session a while ago, and the ability to play new tracks would probably bring a lot of players back to the game along with the crossplay functionality.

  • Old_PopTarts

    @31 Yeah I figured just as much. Was just hoping it would have already ha

    One thing I noticed is I had DL Command and Conquer for the PSP/PS3 but it doesn’t show up in my DL list at ALL. Rather odd. I would have loved to have gotten that on the Vita.

  • Another “launch promise” delivered by Sony. It’s a bit late IMHO but still… bravo!

    Crossplay on Wipeout finally!!!

    Now about that Vita’s ability to play PSOne classics…

  • PlatinumAura

    Throwing it out there I’m now downloading it for free for the Vita (I own the PSN bundle of Fury and the game). I don’t even own 2048 yet!!!…but I will in the coming weeks!!! awesome deal hope to see more like in the future!!

  • @Old_PopTarts
    What type of game is Command and Conquer? PS1 or PSP?

  • Please fix the EULA issue with Wipeout HD. I can’t even play online let alone cross-play if I can’t join a lobby at all.

  • Glad to hear the packs are free if you already own the PS3 versions! More game content need to function this way between the PS3 and Vita!!

  • So will we be also getting an update for the Wipeout HD+Fury (ps3) to play the Wipeout 2048 tracks on the ps3 as well for complete cross play compatibility?

    • Michael Pulst

      Hi tiredminds, I would never say never but currently there is nothing to announce for that.

  • Is this a limited time promo? I have fury & HD for PS3 but don’t own 2048 yet. Should I add to cart anyway to ensure I can still get it for free down the road? Thanks ahead of time for your help.

  • A heads up in advance (not on the same day) would have been nice, but I’m glad to see it finally come.

  • Michael Pulst

    Hiya pa101902, this promotion for WipEout 2048 is not for a limited time. You can download the 2048 DLC now or later for free, as long as you own Wipeout HD and the Fury Add-On for PS3.

  • soooo will ps3 members who have hd and fury ever get 2048 cars and tracks?

    • Ami Nakajima
      Ami Nakajima

      WipEout 2048 is exclusive to PlayStation Vita only, unfortunately

  • dreadedpotato

    Let me get this straight. WipEout 2048 owners get WipEout HD+Furyfree on PS3 if they buy the DLC version for 2048….but WipEout HD+Fury owners have to own 2048 already to use the Vita versions of HD+Fury? Wow. Just wow.

  • Heavenly_king

    I think all this “thing” of re-downloading your game on a different platform would be avoided if remote play was universal for every PS3 game. I know that in this case is free, but that is not the case with other games

    At least you should promote in the game developers community that every PS3 game comes with a digital copy of the same game for the PSVITA. And we would be able to use it only if we register the game, ps3 and PSVITA consoles on-line in order to avoid spreading the game to more than one PSVITA. So if the PSVITA-PS3-GAME combo is not registered then people should buy the PSVITA version from the store if the want to play it.

    Before the release of the PSVITA, a lot of developers showed how easy is to port content from the PS3 to the PSVITA, so I dont think that there would be much money of the developer involved to allow this feature. The BD holds lots of information, so it can easily have both copies of the game.

    If this combo costs the same as $60 like your regular price for a PS3 game, the PS3 and PSVITA will sell out everywhere!!! I know that maybe some developers would be hesitant to do this, but in the end they will sell lots of copies because of the versatility they offer.

    Me sad :(

  • I have the online pass installed on my Vita and have bought HD and Fury PS3 but I cannot find the DLC. Help!

    • Ami Nakajima
      Ami Nakajima

      it appears in-game on the main menu in WipEout 2048 once it’s purchased. Where are you looking? I’ll try and figure it out for you, should be no problem

  • I purchased 2048 through PSN, which included the online pass. I even redownloaded a copy of my online pass and reinstalled it. Yet when I go into the PSN store, there is no purchase or download button for either DLC, although I can see the content in the store.
