I knew I wasn’t getting THAT old that my eyes were going bad when I posted complaining about SDTV gaming being a disadvadvantage for gamers.

Joystiq is running a story about the woes of Dead Rising for SDTV users.

Joystiq can confirm that item descriptions, in-game dialogue, and mission objectives (given via text prompts) are unreadable on a 27" standard-definition TV set using component A/V inputs. That this "next-generation" title doesn’t provide voiceovers for dialogue and mission objectives is questionable enough, but not testing the game in standard-definition resolution? C’mon Capcom, get to know your consumer base.
