It was named Best PlayStation Game of the Year and Best Racing Game of the Year in Game Players 1995 Holiday Edition (Vol. 8, No. 13)
A concept video for Wipeout was featured in the movie "Hackers", though it is never referenced by name.
The Saturn version dropped the CoLD SToRAGE track Transvaal from its audio selection, but included three unique songs not available on any other soundtrack or PlayStation version. The tracks were Poison, Planet 9 and Brickbat. Occasionally miscredited to Orbital, Chemical Brothers, and Leftfield, these three tracks were actually created by Rob Lord and Mark Bandola, who are better known as "PC Music," the composers for most of the songs in Wipeout 64.
Buoyed by the success of the game, Sony released in 1995 a full-length CD album called "Wipeout - the Music". 12 tracks of digital audio, rare and extended mixes featuring artists - Chemical Brothers, New Order, Manic Street Preachers, Sunscream, Leftfield, the Prodigy, the Shamen and others. Boasting 140 average beats per minute (bpm)!!!
The standard 1995 US version contains only the tracks from Cold Storage. The 1997 platinum release featured three extra tracks from Leftfield, Orbital and The Chemical Brothers.
