Sony’s pulled an in-game ad from WipEout HD after it increased load times to up to 20 seconds, EG reports.

“The ad has been removed from WipEout HD and we are investigating the situation to ensure that any in-game advertising does not affect gameplay,” said a SCEE rep.

Check out this video to see what all the fuss was about.
