    Default Hidden stat harvesting

    No doubt all kinds of interesting statistics are being harvested about wipeoutHD.
    Things like:
    The number of players that are finishing the game
    The number of players using sixaxis controls
    The proportion of multiplayer games at each speed class
    The number of instances of splitscreen usage
    Proportions of vertical vs horizontal splitscreen
    The amount that each ship is being used (I think I've only seen one auricom so far)
    The number of players using pilot assist
    The proportion of assist users that stop using it

    Assuming I'm correct in thinking this... the information would be useful for targeting development time in a lot of games, so I would be surprised if it's not being gathered... will the general public ever get to see these stats? I'd find it fascinating, personally.

    I'm more interested in knowing how much $ production of the game cost, and how many copies theyve sold so far.

    On the topic of stats, I'd like to see an average speed stat over the length of a speed lap, time trial and single race so we can compare not only two people scoring XY.Z seconds over a race, but how closely to an optimal speed they came.

    Are the rights to my playing habits signed over in the agreements I never read when signing on online?

    Yes. You probably missed the bit that transfers all your wages into my offshore account, too.

    Anyway, I'm off to the Bahamas in my gold-plated yacht. Bye!

    Well that's fair enough, Egg. Sure, that money was keeping my elderly mother alive but, hey, I couldn't begrudge you a yacht. You've certainly earned it. But if you do happen to pass me on the street, by my cardboard box, toss me a coin won't you?

    My stats may be bought; my stats may be stolen,
    but my reputation's my own, and mine own creation.
