WipEout HD
It’s come a long way since it was first published on PlayStation in 1995, and now cult classic WipEout HD moves into another racing dimension. The stereoscopic 3D Collection will include the full game, with the exception of the separately sold Fury downloadable content (DLC), so you can experience the adrenaline rush of navigating the twists and turns of futuristic racetracks at breathtaking speeds like never before.

Give a whole host of annoying characters and the odd celebrity their just desserts in this incredibly addictive PlayStation®Network favourite that lets you fling them from a giant catapult into walls, windows, tanks of gas, piles of tyres…and the occasional clown. The stereoscopic 3D Collection will include the Downtown area and tutorial along with three modes, including two new modes created specifically with stereoscopic 3D in mind, Alien Toss and Ice Blocks1.

SuperStardust HD
Bringing intense, intergalactic shooting action into another dimension, SuperStardust HD will transport you into a spectacular space setting where you’ll fight to obliterate gigantic asteroids as they rain down into terrestrial orbit and threaten to destroy entire planets. Experience asteroids fly past you as you navigate the deadly battleground - only a battle on a cosmic level will save the indigenous life below from destruction.

MotorStorm 3D Pacific Rift Demo
Available exclusively as part of the stereoscopic 3D Collection, MotorStorm®: Pacific Rift in stereoscopic 3D is where you’ll experience the ride of your life. The demo puts you in the driver’s seat of a buggy for a one track, single player race around the deadly Kanaloa Bay for a dangerously real battle against ruthless opponents.
