"There are video game creators and press people who are surprised that I still play in standard definition. One of them told me just last week that I was wrong to think that most of the people I write for still play on standard sets.
Someday I will buy a high-def TV, but I haven't been in a rush. My current 1999-bought TV had been working just fine, until I recently spotted a surprising flaw.
I have only considered upgrading my TV when a console game I was playing on it didn't display well. This happened when I was playing "Dead Rising" and couldn't read the text. That game made me doubt my Sony Wega. My confidence was restored by the impressive way my set displayed "Gears of War" and most games since."
