+not going to miss anything....as someone said good games for amiga along time ago but wipeout? ive got it but only because was free from when psn was down and even then ive played it maybe twice for 10mins they definitely need to do better than wipeout for its first released games for the ps4, and why have so many different studios can they not link them all for joint venture surely if the talent and equipment is there they might as well use it....or maybe there isn't thats why there closing it.
