Wipeout HD Delayed because of "failed" epilepsy testing

Post by Event Status on Tue Jul 22, 2008 7:13 pm



Many, many things were missing from E3 last week but if you're a Sony fan, one of them was anything to do with the long-awaited PSN version of WipEout.

The streamlined HD racer was strangely absent from Sony's E3 conference, with the firm citing technical difficulties as the culprit.

We've been playing a near finished version of the game here in the office for ages now. Check out these exclusive movies to see how pretty it looks. All we were waiting for then was news of a release and how much it would set us back.

Imagine our surprise when we were told that the game had failed epilepsy tests and has to be re-engineered as a result before it can be released to the public.

CVG has been told that WipEout "fails the epilepsy tests so much that it has to be re-engineered." All that speed and flashing lights zipping past your eyes must be too much to handle.

No further details were available, such as how long this re-working might take but we've contacted Sony and are still awaiting an official response on the status of WipEout HD and when we can expect to see it launch on PSN.

And while we're at it, what ever happened to the PSN release of 2097 (XL in the US)? You'll know when we do.

Update!

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.

I can't imagine getting an epileptic seizure from this. I remember playing time splitters with custom levels with flashing lights was by far the worst.
