WipEout HD Causing Seizures?

Last week TheSixthAxis reported that Wipeout HD was still on track. Shortly after that, though, Sony's David Reeves explained that the reason there's no firm release date is that "there is a specific technical problem with WipEout that we have to solve" and that the problem is "a really, really tricky technical problem that no region has been able to solve at the moment."

Could seizures be the problem he was alluding to?

i am not surprised the power of the cell has enabled wipeout to be presented with extremely fast and advanced gameplay

Lord Shuhei Yoshida3527d ago

my only concern is whether or not the radiation levels of the xbox 360 are being taken care of by microsoft

Lord Shuhei Yoshida3527d ago (Edited 3527d ago )

Problaly not.Microsoft will market it as "limited edition" 360s

I very much doubt thats the cause of the delay. First he states "technical" which makes me believe, well, it's a technical problem.

And the fear of causing eizures or epileptic fits are nothing new, many game have had simple warnings placed at the start.

It is 'technical' though - if this is true they'll need to figure out a 'technical' way to reduce the strobing etc.

i_eatbreakfast4lunch3527d ago

unfortunately all games have this potential risk...

i truly feel bad for those that have to miss out on gaming due to limitations that are not their fault

Kakkoii3527d ago

Yeah.. The epileptic gaming market isn't exactly huge one lol.

I'm sure they couldn't care less about the maybe few hundred dollars max they'd loose from epileptic people not buying the game.

gaffyh3527d ago

I doubt it's seizures that's delaying Wipeout HD. For the simple fact that people who have seizures would already be aware that games are likely to cause them seizures.

Doppy3527d ago

Wow the PS3 graphics are so life like they cause seizures. LOL just kidding but I guess we can expect this game to get pushed back to 2009 due to this.

@ 1

It is the real reason the game was finished but failed to pass an epilepsy test all games must pass.

Wipeout by name...

Wipeout by nature...

Space Harrier can cause seizures, if you are a epileptic anyways....
