    I'm the same, the "new stuff" e.g. detonator is my least favourite. Well done on 2048, quite an achievement! Normal or elite passes? Tough either way!

    Finished all the campaigns just need to go over a few to gold medal the ones I messed up.

    I still for the life of me can't do anything on the A+ races in 2048

    Just Normal passes for most of the 2049 and 2050 seasons. But as you said: Tough either way!

    Anyone pick up Redout on console? Didn't realise it launched last week.

    Might give it a go when (if) I Elite Pass the last few 2048 events.

    Picked up Redout today. It's not Wipeout, and that's both good and bad.

    It's doing its own thing and the controls are very different. Lots of different events, looks great and the music is good.

    However, it doesn't have the same "thread the needle", super accurate handling of Wipeout, feels more like Fzero. The announcer (that can't be turned off) made me want to cut my speaker wires. Some of the shop designs are horrendous and the camera is a little bit too close to the ground.

    Been playing it continuously since I got in just after six, so it's certainly doing something right.

    And done.

    I finished the final few Fury events last night - gold medals on all of them (only in Skilled, not Elite!). I've got a few more trophies to mop up, and I'll do the odd online race.

    Brilliant game, though. Not perfect, but certainly one of the best of the year for me.

    Nice, congrats! I'm still chipping away at this in between other things.

    Went to get the trophy for winning all of the races in an 8-stage RaceBox tournament on Skilled or Elite difficulty last night, but it didn't pop :(

    I've no idea what I did wrong, but it's slightly irritating that I wasted half an hour... Maybe I'll have another go over the weekend.

    That's weird, popped first time for me. It was a bit grindy actually as I put the speed down low and chose an easy track to make sure I won, and then ended up doing it with zero challenge and being a bit bored.

    The other trophies on the other hand are brutal :D

    So I have been chipping away at this too but not grokking it yet.

    Are you supposed to hold down thrust all the time? At the moment I am, and using the air brakes on tight corners. It feels wrong but faster than releasing thrust before a turn.

    How often do you use sideways shift? Seems useful but I can never pull it off in time.

    @ardamillo I use it more than most I think, probably twice a lap. On lower speed classes it is rare to need to come off the throttle or use the airbrakes. On higher classes both become essential although you will still be on the throttle most of the time...

    I might be in the minority here, but I love the soundtrack on this thing.

    I wish I could buy the whole collection in one go but it doesn't appear to be available on Amazon etc - has anyone found any decent 'alternative sources'?

    I consider myself to be pretty good at Wipeout but I'm really struggling with the Beat Zico HD trophy. When I beat the 2048 version of Beat Zico I was pretty proud, but this really is another level. I'm going to keep chipping away and I know I will get it eventually, but it's starting to get tiresome. Any tips welcome!

    Currently I have 30.95, annoyingly close to the target...

    30.92 now! I really am making a meal of this. Still, I will feel pretty good when I eventually crack it...

    @ChrisOTR Can we swap?

    I can do the Best Zico HD pretty easily but struggle with the 2048 time :) (Beat Zico on the Vita was an easier time and different track, if I recall)

    You need to beat that when we have the VR mode!

    @IronGiant The thought occurred to me. I'm still struggling to believe that it is every mode in VR, but it is meant to be, right?

    Actually, thinking about it I think I read that only a few VR ships will be usable in VR, and this trophy expects you to use the Piranha...

    @ChrisOTR YMMV, I just find the controls on 2048 aren't as tight as HD. Plus it's far more difficult to see the boost pads and there's so many barrel rolls for that time!

    Think only a few ships have proper modelled cockpits but every ship is usable, that's the impression I got.

    The faster speeds are mentally hard aren't they. Straight from the PS1 era when games were harder. Still this has got a pretty good learning curve - beating stuff on lower levels feels good and you are still learning stuff every go. By God you have to be inch perfect to get some of the Elite golds though.

    I could be wrong but I took it to mean that the new ships will be the only ones with a VR cockpit view. I'm assuming that the original ships will still be usable in VR but limited to chase and bumper cams.
