As we rub our hands together with childish – and a touch of evil; we don't know why – glee, let us all remind you that Wipeout HD is a pretty damn big release. And the best news is this: Sony has officially revealed the date and price for the U.S.!

SCEA producer Daimion Pinnock made the announcement over at the official PlayStation blog, and we really couldn't be happier. The hotly anticipated futuristic racer will release on the PlayStation Store on September 25 for the price of $19.99. Earlier, we had heard from another SCEA rep that the game would be coming "soon" and at a "bargain" price, and after seeing this information, we're inclined to agree. Pinnock also provided us with the full details of what to expect with this game:

Sweeeeet. We can't wait to give this one a try; in all honesty, we've been waiting all year for Wipeout HD . It ran into problems when it failed epilepsy testing, but clearly, the team has made the appropriate fixes and the game is clear for launch. You only need one reason to log on to the Store on the 25th, and it's right here .

After a year of waiting, I almost thought I couldn't give my money to Sony for Wipeout HD.

I will be spamming the store that day for it.

Likely upon downloading it, I won't be seen here for a few days! LOL

Next thursday seems like a month from now! And $20? That's incredible when you consider wipeout pure being initially released at 50, and pulse being released at 30, both games being on the psp. OK, so the tracks are just revisions. That leaves you with no excuse when I see you online! And let me also use this time to vent, so pardon me. Top 10 laimest things said (or asked) about Wipeout…

10. Due to a very complex problem that no region has been able to solve (like failed epilepsy tests), we have significantly delayed release to ensure that… all EQ billboards have been removed.

9.Dude, did he say surfboards? How can you play Wipeout without surfboards?

8. I don't like the music. What's that? I can upload my own tunes? Why should I have to do that?

7. What? I won't be able to scratch a disc or trade it in? It can't be worth getting.

6. Dude, it's just a ripoff of OutRun.

5. WipeOut? No personality. Halo rocks.

4. I've been waiting many years for this game, and I'm so excited, but is Captain Falcon still in it?

3. I've been waiting some time now for this game, unfortunately, $20 seems a tad high for a high definition downloadable title.

2. Wipeout's got weapons? Oh yeah, well does it got banana peals?
