Sony Scrap WipeOut HD Loading Ad

The people have spoken. Spoken angrily. And Sony have listened, removing the worst of the in-game advertising from WipeOut HD only 24 hours after it was first officially announced.

"The ad has been removed from WipEout HD", a Sony rep told Eurogamer, "and we are investigating the situation to ensure that any in-game advertising does not affect gameplay".

Note this doesn't mean all advertising in the game has been removed; only the ad that was causing the annoying, increased load times.

    well, at least they were smart about it and listened. i'm sure they were getting flooded with hate mail and forums were full of hatred surrounding this subject.

    It is indeed nice to see a huge company actually responding to customers. Good one Sony.
