WipEout HD Broken

When we were testing the final version of WipEout HD yesterday we simply assumed the online portion of the game was disabled, and had to play it signed out of PSN.  Turns out it’s still broken, but it’s actually because of some bug with the friends list – if you’ve got more than 50 friends, the game will hang on the menus, and you won’t be able to race.

We’ve not verified this 100% yet, but it’s simple: if the game is crashing, delete some friends or play the game signed out.  We’re assuming a patch is forthcoming, but, seriously, this is pretty shitty.


Update: yep, we’ve just deleted 30 or so friends, and now the online portion is working…
