why is wipeout freezing can i get an answer for this please i’m not the only one who’s had this issue so far either.

@Razor: Yours WAS a personal problem. It was happening to you and you only. This is happening to people worldwide. There’s a subtle difference.

@147: Don’t get it twisted; I love my PS3; it’s the best console I ever owned. I’m good playing MM9 and WipEout off the network until they sort this.

A slight bug in WipEout HD and online profile information. If you race an online match and then pull up the profile for someone you raced in the XMB’s player met screen and then press R1 to go to the last page where it shows ‘Played’, ‘Game Title’, and ‘Information’ you’ll see “Implement this properly” in the ‘Information’ box. Not a huge bug by any means, but a TODO item that probably slipped though the cracks.

For those having freezing issues, try playing it offline once and then going back in, does it still freeze or is it explicitly tied to the amount of friends have we determined?

Best update ever! I’m short on cash though! :P

Excellent update this week. But no PSOne titles again :( come on guys it’s like you’re not even trying.

+ GGCAN on September 25th, 2008 at 7:53 pm said:

@NipGrip

Yes…I played a full game offline, came back online and tried and it freezes almost immediately.

I’m waiting for a fix and sure it will be out soon.

The game is all I expected, don’t get me wrong, it’s just the people I do know that are playing are telling me the online is amazing.

Sony, FIX Wipeout HD!

It’s crashing on me, CRASH CRASH CRASH. I have to log out of PSN just to play it, what happen to internal testing? Needs a patch ASAP! Fun game, but when you can’t play with friends it makes it less appealing. Yes, I have over 50 friends, but I shouldn’t have to delete friends just to enjoy a game, smh.


163

+ uraizen on September 25th, 2008 at 10:00 pm said:

Curses! The price on Wipeout HD was just too good. I bought it even though I told myself not to! I don’t regret it one bit.

My Wipeout is freezing also :(

Please patch ASAP! :(

I would like to know why WOHD is £12.99 in the uk, but Burnout is £24.99. There is no parity in how you calculate pricing.

Come on Sony, play a fair game on exchange rates – we’re in a global digital age now, the old excuses no longer wash.

THERE’S A BUG IN WIPEOUT!!! It freezes my entire system every time I want to start it up and it happens to a lot of European gamers!

I guess this is a good spot to report that Life with playstation keeps freezing on me whenever i actually click on a story from around the world and it launches into the PS3 browser and goes to google news…

I’m having music skipping problems on Wipeout HD and wipeout HD only. Have already reinstalled the game from the Store and the music just skips during gameplay and gameplay only. I haven’t tried the custom soundtracks option yet, but this is only happening in Wipeout


175

+ Gustavo_B on September 26th, 2008 at 8:10 am said:

Just to all you know:
WipEout HD is freezing with people that have a big friend list. I bought the game yesterday and until now I couldn’t play a single game.
My PS3 just freeze everytime I chose the first or second option in the menu.
Another two friends of mine are having the same problem.
Hope someone at Studio Liverpool is looking at it!!

For crying out loud, who’s bright idea was it to have a bright white menu screen in Wipeout HD? Did you guys even trying testing it on a large LCD?

Do you really like burning the retinas of your paying customers?

Please patch in at least an option to have a different color menu screen.
