Wipeout HD Priced at $20 in North America

SCE Liverpool's downloadable hovercraft racer Wipeout HD will cost $19.99 when it arrives on PlayStation 3 later this year, producer Daimion Pinnock has confirmed.

"It's going to be $19.99," he told Shacknews in an interview published today. Essentially a "best-of," the game features 16 tracks culled from the franchise's various titles. nope

Pinnock also spoke on title's recent delay, rumored to be triggered by epilepsy concerns. While he did not address the supposed epilepsy issue, the producer stressed the importance of smooth online play and trophy support.

"We wanted to make sure that this one kind of made a statement, and was something that we could be really proud of, and we absolutely are," said Pinnock. "Having eight players in there, and make sure they're running at 60 frames with no lag, is really important."
