I bought Redoubt when it was on sale, and it is a fairly decent racer, but it falls short compared to Wipe out. FZero-GX is probably my favorite racer of all time, so I'm always interested in Wipe out -style games too.
I picked up Xenon Racer several weeks ago for $3 and got a good 6hrs of enjoyment out of it completing all the single-player stuff. It's futuristic and VERY fast at points, and fairly tough, but it's not actually hover cars.

“It is important to us that everyone gets to play Pacer at the same time on PC and consoles therefore, please look forward to the simultaneous platform release before the end of September.” The good news is, the team seems confident it will release in September, so at most we should only have to wait a week or two to play some fast-paced futuristic racing.

The number of retail-worthy games on the PS3 is limited pretty much to Sony exclusives. You may point at the Wii as the exception to that rule, but I’ll argue that the games did very little to make that console a success.
Pure speed. When the PS3 became the current gen leaving the PS2 behind, I lost access to several of my favorite Sony-exclusive titles. I love me some arcade racing and Wipe out delivered that to a tee.
With the PS3, Sony released Wipe out HD, by far the best looking integration of the game yet (and why shouldn’t it be? I sat drooling over Wipe out and Metal Gear knowing I’d never play them regularly.
The Xbox 360 is my console of choice, even though I swore the Wii would be awesome (and it was for about nine months). Apparently spaceship racing games aren’t quite the draw they used to be (if they ever were) and so you won’t find any on the shelves.
For the price of admission, ACR brings you dozens of tracks and a good selection of racers. For the most part the tracks are well-designed and a lot of fun to play.
The graphics are crisp and sharp despite not being able to pump out the power of the original Sony title. I can appreciate a developer that is not ashamed to clone one of their favorite games, and I’ll gladly give them my money.
Clearly not Wipe out, but close enough You feel kind of bad picking on Indie games that only set you back $3, but because I love Wipe out -style games so much, I feel I have to point some things out. The camera goes crazy, you experience clipping problems, and things just behaves poorly.
Your spaceships come with air brakes and other things but activating them doesn’t trigger any visual response from your racer. The buttons are working fine, but sometimes it’s hard to tell if you crashed because you didn’t use your brakes or if you over-braked.
However, seeing how the 360 sometimes chokes on graphics during a single player track makes me think it wouldn’t be able to handle two at once. The game comes with your standard issue techno racing music, but you can do without it.
Wipe out isn’t all about shooting your opponents, but some limited power-ups to spice things up would have been nice. BUT, if some of these things had been minded then this title could have easily been a $5, $10 or even $15 game without anyone bitching.
If nothing else, ACR tells me that one of the big boys needs to step up and make a Wipe out -clone with a budget. I look at Battlefield: 1943 as an example, it will work (I know FPS games are slightly more popular than space racing, but still).
And if the PS3 hadn’t been so expensive and the Xbox 360 not such a hot console, I would have bought a PS3 just for Wipe out and Metal Gear alone. Combo, boost and pull ludicrous stunts as Joe attempts to race his way back into the record books in over 100 eye-popping levels.
