Wipeout 2097 on PS1 indeed, was the only one with the soundtrack including Prodigy (instrumental), Leftfield etc...That would be Sony Marketing in action wanting to put PS version above everything else...On the PC and other platforms and for Wipeout XL (not checked Wipeout2097 on Saturn though) it used Tim Wright who did the score for the original Wipeout (among other things like shite loads of the music of Psygnosis and dance eJay!).
For a number of years, given current setup's... MP3's were CPU intensive, and WAV's were MEM intensive, and CD-ROM's can play CD's without the PC even on (as long as they have power, a headphone jack and a 'play/skip' button).. so getting the CD-rom to play music without impacting the system is a no brainer and gave high fidelity music to a lot of titles... also you could listen to them in CD players (skip track 01 usually, although I don't think this was intended, but touted as a feature sometimes), and also means even 'Full install still required CD's for the full game experience...no doubt publishers loved this since it limited cracking since 'nocd' cracks wouldn't give the full experience.
"Probably the biggest technical issue that I remember was dealing with the lack of perspective correct texturing and having to sub-divide the polygons in the track so that they looked OK up-close where the near clip plane is. The problem is that the resolution of the polygon XY positions and the necessity to have T-joints led to cracks in the track. We never did eliminate all the cracks. Also, the CD-ROM version of the development kit came relatively late in the development cycle so we had to scramble to get that working. PAL support was also really late in the development kit."
Wipeout 2097 (released as Wipeout XL in North America and Japan) is a futuristic racing game developed and published by Psygnosis. It is the second installment released in the Wipeout series and the direct sequel of the original game released the previous year. It was originally released in 1996 for the PlayStation, and in 1997 for Microsoft Windows and the Sega Saturn. It was later ported by Digital Images to the Amiga in 1999 and by Coderus to Mac OS in 2002. Whereas the original game introduced the F3600 anti-gravity racing league in 2052, Wipeout 2097 is set over four decades later and introduces the player to the much faster, more competitive, and more dangerous F5000 AG racing league. The game introduced a new damage interface and new weapons and tracks. The Sega Saturn version supported analogue control by using its 3D Control Pad, whereas the PlayStation version supported analogue control only through using the optional NeGcon twist controller
