'Wipeout' Getting Down and Dirty with Nintendo

ABC's Do you want to experience the awesome majesty of the 'Wipeout' obstacle course but without having to endure the painful humiliation of having to sacrifice your dignity on national television? Nintendo has the answer.

A video game version of the popular ABC game show is headed to the Nintendo Wii and the DS. An official release date has not yet been set.

David Oxford of Activision Publishing said in a released statement, "Watching ABC's 'Wipeout' on TV is outrageous fun, and viewers can't help but dream of trying the obstacles themselves. We designed the video game with this in mind. 'Wipeout: The Game' brings all of the challenge and laugh-out-loud hilarity without the pain."

I assume he means the emotional pain and not the physical, unless of course someone catches you playing it in public.

This should be interesting, since I am pretty sure that Sony already has a trademark registered for the use of the name "Wipeout" as relates to video games...

This game was already released in England for the Wii under the title of "Ultimate Red Ball Challenge" The only difference is that it features Richard Hammond as the host. The game is horrible, and I'm sure it will just end up being the same game in the US. Avoid at all costs.
