Ouch. Bad news for people planning to play the new Banjo on an SDTV...

About the hard-to-read text in-game via George K. from Rare:

Unfortunately, this is an issue that doesn't look like it will get changed. I don't want to bore you with the technical side of things (I really don't understand it all myself), but the long and the short of it is that the text you see in the demo will be the same as that which you find in the retail version of the game.

I'm sorry that we weren't able to address this issue as nothing would please us more than turning all your complaints into gleeful responses, but it's simply something that's too expensive in terms of time, resources and money to alter.

Please don't kill me. This *doesn't* mean we don't care about or respect the community. This *does* mean that, when all's said and done, we're only human.

Ouch. That's definitely going to bring the review score down. What a severe oversight. This game is supposed to appeal to casuals (whatever the hell those are), yet even a big gamer like me doesn't play on an HDTV. I find it hard to believe that the majority of the Wii crowd plays on HDTVs either... Seems like developers still don't get it, and that's just truly insulting. How dense can you possibly be to overlook something like that? It's as if no one in Q&A played the game on anything smaller than a 20 inch screen...
