    Joystiq says it's delayed for "extra features." SCEE should try staying on message for once. Is it extra features or a technical glitch? (I did enjoy the description of how they cornered an SCEE spokesperson to get the info--seems like any piece of info that doesn't come from Colin always has to be beaten out of someone!)

    Im going to wait in silience for the release of HD. Standby and see how some theses threads evolve. Everybody is getting shitty and toxic, Colin, the Mods, WZ users and the consumer. Maybe its best to have a quite down phase for a while. Im wondering wheres Lance? I havent heard of him since the post he did on one of my threads.

    The mods haven't quit, but damn did they pick a bad time to get some fresh air.

    Speaking of which, I need to go to the mall, socialise with people, SOMETHING other than check this and the Release Date thread 5 zillion times an hour! O_O

    Wow, busy thread.
    While I'm sure everyone would like to know on what exact day we can go out and get us some WO:HD, I can at least explain why that's not gonna happen.
    When you've got a program bug that's based on a merely okay solution to a really tricky problem, then your two options are to either 1) release with that known issue, or 2) find a better solution to the tough problem. 1 is a very typical response, that's why so many online games suck, because online gaming is a very tough nut to crack.
    It looks like they're going for 2 here, which is really good.
    However, there's no way that anyone could reasonably guesstimate as to when it'll be fixed. It's impossible. Could be weeks, could be months. No way to say till they've got a good solution.

    So pull our your previous-gen console and put in yer favourite WO and re-live your favourite past success of the franchise, HD is gonna take a while.

    I think they just want to release it in September in Europe (1-3, Pure). Bad idea to release it any other time (Fusion, Pulse)

    I would like to try the "unfinished build". No chances of a demo or something, right?
    (Hi Dogg Thang, hope there's a HD skin editor to see what you can do)

    Yeah I'm kind of resigned to think we are going to get a September released as well. Oh well, thats when i planned on getting my new 32" HD TV anyway so

    I bet you any money that we will see some extras. Hopefully 10 tracks in the final build instead of 8 Colin?

    No! The actual track and ship count must be powers of two!

    Not necessarily, Sox. Wipeout Pure, with all the DLC available for PAL players, doesn't have but 28 tracks. Which isn't a power of two.

    Why isn't Lance handling this mathematical jargon? XD
