SCEE refuses to confirm or deny epilepsy concerns to TVG but claims Trophies and splitscreen will feature...

Following reports concerning the delay to Wipeout HD and suggestions that the game had failed an epilepsy test, a SCEE representative today provided TVG with an official response.

"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."

Not exactly a firm denial to the epilepsy reports, but at least we have confirmation that Wipeout HD will feature Trophy support and splitscreen as a result of the delay.

Having said that, they should have the option to host a race with it disabled for the purists...

Looks like pilot assist in online is fine, it slows you down a lot if you take corners sharply, so those who can handle not using it will actually have a slight advantage

Accessiblity is never a word that should never even be mentioned in the same breath as Wipeout - who are you a Sony marketing guy or something. Beyond the online issues with the Pilot Assist though (shouldn't have it), Wipeout HD is as good as I was hoping.

I'm with you about the pilot assist - BUT, feel that it should NOT be an option when playing ONLINE! Who ever heard of a public online game where you are able to use a handicap against others that don't know it. They should limit your speed a tad if you have to use pilot assist!!!

Typical gamer posturing to sugar off the pilot assist in the review. If it makes the game more accessible, what's wrong with that? Just turn the damn thing off and quit moaning.

I pine for this game - my yearning only sated by the thought of the split-screen - I'd be fine if I only knew the release date. Any clues?

At least give us a online, multi-player, one-trach DEMO of the game in it's curent version! As long as the game supports the headsets and online chat function, if we hear an opponent hit the floor in the convulsing throws of a grand-mal seizure, we can pause the race and call 9-1-1 (after I've taken at least a one lap lead-- but that goes without saying, right?).
