Kotaku’s posted a comment from SCEA which appears to confirm that there is a problem with locking on some PS3s and WipEout HD.
“Following the release of WipEout HD on PlayStation Store yesterday, we’ve been following the reports by some members of the community regarding problems with game freezes,” said a rep.
“We’d like to reassure you all that the WipEout team is working hard to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.”
As reported yesterday, it seems the game doesn’t get on too well with large friends lists. Has to be pretty easy to fix, right?
