any news on Wipeout HD?

12 replies 33 views Edited Jul 28, 2008
PS Store needs more big titles like this one. Not Pixeljunk or Elefunk. Any idea when it is coming out?

Delayed due to failing "epileptic tests" from what I've gathered.

Thank god you responded to BCT. Anyways, i really have been waiting for this game. Even if the tracks are the same as previous games, i still would love to play online and on the big screen.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epilepsy

 

Epilepsy is a common chronic neurological disorder that is characterized by recurrent unprovoked seizures.

 

In the case of video games, or any moving video, too many flashes can cause a seizure even to occur, so creators are careful to check for this rather than risk lawsuits, even though warnings are generally added to practically any video game out there

seizures are weird... my mom's friends daughter, when she READ about the spiders in harry potter..she had a seizure, then she saw the movies IN THE THEATER and almost had one, but she left the theater before she did...one of the many wonders of the body...

I think that the epilepsy test is a rumor.  The official phrase was "Technical Difficulties" I believe.  But apparently they're adding some new stuff to keep us interested with all the delays.

 

"The reason for the delay of WipEout HD on PS3 has been due to the many improvements we have been making and the numerous features we've added to the game. These include: 8 reverse tracks, 4 extra ships, 2 alternative HUDS, 2 Player offline split screen and XMB Trophy support. We look forward to sharing WipEout HD with you very soon.

Regarding the speculation about health issues, we can assure you that we take consumer safety very seriously and monitor it very carefully."

Seems like everyone on these boards will be stoked with the trophies at least.

 

First Post BTW, hope it won't be my last.

I've been waiting for this for so long... But at least they're adding stuff to make up for the wait while they fix whatever problems they're having.  I was really pleasantly suprised to hear this.  Big thumbs up to Studio Liverpool/Sony

btw has there been any estimates on a release date for this?

I would guess it will be out this fall pending no more delays.  September would be earliest possibility I would think.
