Despite CVG reporting earlier this week that WipEout HD’s been delayed because it failed epilepsy tests, SCEE is refusing to confirm the reason, saying instead the game’s been pushed back because of polish-time.

“The reason for the delay of WipEout HD on PS3 has been due to the many improvements we have been making and the numerous features we’ve added to the game,” a rep told TVG.

“These include: either reverse tracks, four extra ships, two alternative HUDS, two-player offline split screen and XMB Trophy support. We look forward to sharing WipEout HD with you very soon.”

“Regarding the speculation about health issues, we can assure you that we take consumer safety very seriously and monitor it very carefully.”

David Reeves confirmed that WipEout HD has been delayed to the end of the year at E3 last week.
