Xbox's 'Dead Rising' seems to require an HDTV

One of the Xbox's greatest features of allowing players to view the games in ether high-def or standard-def seems to have been forgot by Capcom in Dead Rising. Internet forums are flaming away on how the in-game's text are un-readable on normal SDTVs and users are claiming that the game must have been test only on high-def sets. This 'bug' effects nearly every portion of the game as the player cannot read anything in any conversation or receive the games instructions when viewed on a normal TV. (Dead Rising, Xbox 360)

anybody with a normal tv verify this. It's hard to believe but it seems possible.

my bestfriend has a lot of trouble reading it. but he plays his 360 on a really small tv
2tired2day2hate  +   2930d ago
its small but i've always been able to read it well enough to be ok. my tv is only 27" and i sit like 6 feet away and its still pretty hard to see. so i'd imagine a smaller tv would be really annoying to play on. its more of an issue of just being small, has nothing to do with not being clear enough. i dont know why hd was even brought up.... The sad part is people will criticize ms for this and not capcom

yeah for sure, I have a HDTV and it's only 27" and I have a hard time seeing text at times as well, it really depends on the game as well...

i cant read anything. i dont have an hdtv. im so glad i rented this game instead of buying it. maybe a update will come out.

I noticed this in the demo. It's pretty hard to read the text without straining my eyes. Oh well, I'd figured that someone would write a walkthrough or something online someday. So I'm not too worried about it.

there will be an inevitable update, but not before thousands inevitably criticise the xbox 360 and inevitably claim this signifies Playstation superiority.
Life is so predictable sometimes.

But won’t it be the same issue with PS3? X360 games have been aimed at normal standard TVs allowing you to also play in HD and get greater detail etc. Now we’re seeing games focused more on HD, thus the problem with dead rising.

HALO3 will support both HD and SD, but what about PS3? It’s aimed totally at NEXT GEN and HD gaming. :(

"Xbox's 'Dead Rising' seems to require an HDTV" I honestly though you couldn't play the game at all.

Good thing I have an HDTV and Surround Sound. To all the whiners, Just get a Wii

lol no problem here ........

amazing game i must say

i see this problem on my tv
but does anyone else notice that when ya hit like 5 or more dead dudes at once that there is a frame rate loss

360 and HDTV go hand in hand!
If youre not playing on an HDTV you are missing out bigtime. I couldnt imagine playing the 360 on a standard TV, that would be the difference between VHS and DVD. Ive been playing these games on a 32inch Samsung LCD HDTV and it makes the graphics look the way they were meant to look. If you dont own an HDTV whats the point on gettin a 360 in the first place?

My 30 inch Samsung CRT HD-TV makes this game look amazing. Im glad I made the upgrade, with my size screen I can obviously read the text. Once I got my new tv I had a new appreciation for all my 360 games. Detail is much more noticable, etc.. Im totally addicted to Dead Rising, what a great game. To be honest I don't know how anyone without a HD-TV could be excited about 360 or PS3... for the simple fact you're not getting your games in all their beautiful glory! now Im off to play Dead Rising in glorious 1080i... or is that my demo of Saints Row?... either way it's a win!
