Yesterday, we had reported that WipEout HD, the popular PSN title, had received advertisements. It seems one of these advertisements caused a big problem not only with PS3 owners, but the game itself.

The advertisement showcased above made the title load a lot more slowly, as you can see from the video. Sony has since contacted Eurogamer, and announced that the ad was removed.

“The ad has been removed from WipEout HD and we are investigating the situation to ensure that any in-game advertising does not affect gameplay.”

How do you feel about advertisements in WipEout HD? Post your thoughts below.
