In-game ads nearly double Wipeout HD load times

Posted on Wednesday, August 05 2009 @ 00:41:09 CEST by


In-game video ads were recently added to Wipeout HD. ShackNews now reports these ads nearly double the load times of some races!
The video ads, served by advertising firm Double Fusion, occasionally play in a window as a race loads. Video evidence suggested that load times can last around twice as long when the ads are incorporated, a ratio that Shacknews can corroborate after independent testing.

After selecting a ship, it took us approximately 12 seconds to enter a race. With the ads playing, the race consistently loaded after around 20 seconds.
