Default In-Game Ads Nearly Double Load Times

In-game advertisements recently added to Wipeout HD are nearly doubling the load times of some races, Shacknews can confirm.

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.
