    So if you remember back in 2006 when Dead Rising came out many users suffered because of the tiny text size in the game for people using a standard definition TV. Well the problem is prevalent in BK: N&B. Rare has issued a statement saying the problem will NOT be resolved upon the game's release, which I'm sure doesn't matter to most of you. I'm in the small percentage that still uses an SD TV (16....job doesn't pay that much...). Since there's no voice acting in the game, this really disheartens me as a long time BK fan. Apparently there's more to it than meets the eye and I acknowledge the fact that people have moved on, and that I should too, but an HDTV just isn't in my grasp at the moment....looks like I'll be toughing it out with bifocles until some crazy method is found on how to increase the text size.

    That sucks.
    There are HDTVs in my house, but they are plasma and my parents are too scared of burn-in to let me touch it.

    I still use SD too.

    I don't care. I'm going to play that game even if I've got to sit inches away from the screen. It looks amazing.

    Just save up for a really nice and small LCD TV. Or hook it up to your PC monitor.

    You can probably afford a monitor if you have any sort of job, (which I assume you do, because you said so), so just save up about $250 and buy yourself a nice monitor. I have a 24'' monitor that I got for about $400. I use it for my computer, but I can see people playing games on it, since it is Full HD.

    yes you are exactly right, not enough people realize that PC monitors can be used for HD gaming, i'm on a budget so thats what i use. All you need is a monitor that can output in at least 720p(and most monitors are now supporting 1080p as standard) and the Xbox's VGA or HDMI cable

    It's readable on my TV, but still it'd be nice if it was a little bit bigger.

    It's a real shame. Rare knows better than this.
