WipEout HD Held Back Due To Epilepsy

August 2, 2008

A fairly big Sony title, WipEout HD, was mysteriously absent at their E3 keynote. In gameplay videos the game looks completed, leaving many wondering why it wasn’t shown, or even talked about. The game, boasting flashy and vibrant graphics, is rumored to have failed tests for people with epilepsy. Someone diagnosed with epilepsy can have a seizure, caused by bright flashing lights and colors. Though only a small percentage of people have this condition, it’s very important for this to be fixed.
