WipEout HD price announced

Release date still to be confirmed.

Sony has announced that WipEout HD will cost GBP 11.99 when it launches, but the release date has yet to be confirmed.

WipEout HD is Sony's 60 frames-per-second, 1080p downloadable PS3 take on the classic futuristic racing series, featuring tracks borrowed from the excellent PSP duo, WipEout Pure and Pulse.

The game was held up recently by a specific technical problem - believed to be a failed safety test for epilepsy.

However, Sony went on to deny that, claiming the real reason for the delay was to add new features like Trophy support, eight reverse tracks, four extra tracks and two-player split-screen.

Whatever the reality, you can expect to read our review of the finished game very soon, and can check out our WipEout HD hands-on preview in the meantime.
