    Default WipEout HD delayed due to technical issue

    There you have it lads. Ah shyte

    WipEout HD has yet to be released because of a "specific technical problem", but Sony hopes it will be out "before the end of the year".

    "There is a specific technical problem with WipEout that we have to solve. I can't go into details but it is a really, really tricky technical problem that no region has been able to solve at the moment," Sony Europe boss David Reeves told us when we hassled him about the game's progress this week at LA.

    "I think it will come out before the end of the year but it is something that was just very difficult to get to grips with."

    Which is a shame, because WipEout HD looks great and we were pretty happy with it when we got to play around with an unfinished build a few months ago.

    WipEout HD features eight tracks borrowed and spruced up from the excellent PSP games along with online multiplayer and the promise of downloadable content. It also aims to run at 60 frames-per-second in 1080p.

    I don't think 60FPS/1080p is the problem as one user implied.

    Maybe it's online debugging, maybe it's trophy support. But I'd rather SL take their time to work out the issues than release a buggy game. I think we all remember our reaction when told the DLC ships for Pulse wouldn't be available for use online. I don't want any more silly bugs like that in HD.

    ColdRem'S: Colin has been very tight lipped about what's keeping the game off the e-shelves ever since we were told the game was "99% finished". Maybe it could change, but I know for certain the number's around 85-90% now.

    Classic Sony train wreck. Again. Unfortunately.

    But as long as it is a "really, really, reaaaallly tricky problem honest" then I guess that's ok then.

    piper, Colin is part of the development team that is making WipEout HD, if I recall he is the lead designer of Pulse and HD as well. I think he would know about any issues with the game's development to this point, and if there is a problem he didn't know about, someone certainly would have told him.

    Coincidentally, he's online right now and viewing this thread by the time I finish this edit.

    It was actually a joke based on the legendary lack of internal communication at Sony.

    When the head of Sony Europe says he cant go in to detail then you can hardly expect me to.

    At least something has been said, it should end all the July 15th I mean 16th I mean 20th nonsense
