Capcom Says No Patch For SD Screens and Monster Hunter

"I’m currently playing Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for review. I have both the 3DS and the Wii U version of the game. I’m playing the Wii U version of the game on an SD TV, because that’s what I have at my house.

During my time with the that version of the game I’ve had a lot of trouble reading the text on the screen because it’s so small. Menu options and inventory screens are generally readable, but the dialogue boxes in the game have text that is so small that it’s almost unreadable. Since there is no voiced dialogue in the game all of the story bits are done in these small text boxes.

I asked representatives from Capcom about the text size problem, because while it might not be a large issue there will be people like me who can’t fully enjoy the game because of that. There response to me was as follows:", writes Nintendo-Okie. (Dev, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Wii U)

Wait. You can afford to purchase a $350 console, but have yet to upgrade to an HDTV of any size?
fr0sty  +   982d ago
No joke... you bought an HD console. Get a HDTV to hook it up to. You can get HDTVs for under $200 now.

yeah the Sony PS3 3D tv is a great deal for cheap. I don't know why this guys complaining when there are so many cheap HDTV options out there.

funny how my TV was cheaper then the wii u
DA_PRGamer  +   982d ago

dude u have to get a HDTV theres no reason to buy any console these days if you dont have one

Market saturation of HDTV's is still less than 50% in the US. Quite surprising since it's about all you can buy now. I think it's projected to breach 50% in 2016 based on the last thing I read about it.

Still I kind of agree...if you are reviewing games or writing about them in general, you should at least make an attempt at getting the bare minimum that the developers use to present the game.

Back when the ps3 and 360 first came out this wouldve been an issue to sympathize with however that was over half a decade ago and that ship has sailed
If u don't have an HDTV into the 2nd generation of hd consoles its your own fault especially since they can be found for so cheap now
Ultr  +   982d ago
jup totaly agree on that

I can't take it that one of my friends still plays on a fat-tv... its such a joke tbh

I don't believe that's a fair view, if you make a product exclusively for HD then i would agree, but if you make a product that also supports SD this should not be an issue, it's just saying look we know there is a problem and were not fixing it, regardless of how small that problem is, you shouldn't be penalize for owning a SDTV if you bought a product that's suppose to be compatible with it.

Capcom should be considerate of monster hunter's purchasers not everyone is gonna have a hd tv

WiiU Deluxe console - 349.99
Monster Hunter - 59.99
Not spending this 410 dollars on an HDTV = PRICELESS

i thought the wii u came with hdmi cables, how did they hook it up to an old tv? i guess there is some work-around, and by that, your not using the system the way it was intended, and this is the end result, games not displaying right

You can just use the old Wii's AV cables.
KrisButtar  +   982d ago
cool, thanks for clearing that up(i would still call that a work-around). also it was big nintendo news that the wii u was hd console, and the person in question should have realized that not using the hdmi cord, that came with the system was going to cause problems down the road.
deafdani  +   982d ago
I'm not arguing that, it's definitely absurd to play an HD console on an SDTV nowadays, especially considering HDTV's are so stupidly cheap now.

I was merely replying to you how to play Wii U on a SDTV, is all. :)
KrisButtar  +   982d ago
I apologize if I came across the wrong way, I was merely shocked, that the Wii cable worked at all, and someone would not use the cable provided. Lol.

Damn he can afford Wii U, but not HD TV?
Nodoze  +   982d ago
Just shut up and buy an HDTV. You can buy one for the price you paid for the WiiU. Why exactly did you buy a WiiU?
barb_wire  +   982d ago
I agree - in fact you can get a 32" HDTV for $199 now, just shop around.
dark-kyon  +   982d ago
just sell your tv to a museum and with the cash buy a lcd,in my country your find for $120 bucks one of 19 inches

It's amazing how things have changed over the years. I remember the text issue for both Dead Rising and Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts. Many people online demanded patches for those versions of the games.

Now it's "shut up and buy an HDTV." Not that I disagree. If you're buying better hardware that is in HD, you may as well get an HD TV while you're at it.

If your playing any hd consoles on a sdtv because money is always an issue(i know someone like that), you truly have my sympathies. If you buy a new $350 console with a $50-60 game while not having a hdtv your just a fucking moron.

It's not 2007, when hdtv were expensive for a decent 40 inch 1080p tv, tvs are cheap now and the games are designed for hdtv/moniters.

The author can afford $400+ dollars in a console and games, yet he is still gaming on a sdtv seriously? Money isn't a issue obviously, and yet you want to bitch at capcom for not bothering to patch the text for ancient crt tvs, buy a hdtv retard.

Talk about a spoiled brat.
