WipEout HD Delayed Due to Failed Epilepsy Testing

My Coveted WipEout HD Delayed Due to Failed Epilepsy Tests

I was looking forward to seeing WipEout HD at this year's E3 Summit (since I have had this futuristic racer on my wish list for months), and was kinda bummed when it wasn't shown during Sony's panel discussions. We were told it's because the sleek game was being "packed with extra features," and while that may be true, what might be more true is that the title is failing epileptic seizure tests left, right and center!

The game, which is packed with flashy neon lights and fast moving tracks, has had troubles making it past "go" with testers saying that Wipeout HD "fails the epilepsy tests so much that it has to be re-engineered." No final date was set for WipEout HD's release on the Playstation Network, but Sony Europe's CEO David Reeves says he "thinks" it will hit the market by the end of the year. Bummer!

I'm not trying to be an a-hole or anything, but is there really a huge epileptic gaming community? I looked it up and it says that it only affects between 0.5% to 2% of the population. Can't we just make the game as freaking cool and flashy as possible but put one of those warnings on it? It just seems like a waste of development time & money to redo something that affects less than 2% of the population....

I still think it's funny that all games and videos have to pass this test.
