Today was the day. GameStop’s big Game Days Sale where certain products were 50% off. So I drove down to the local GameStop that used to be the EB Games that I worked at and picked up two PSP games. Street Fighter Alpha 3 Max for $9.99 and Monster Hunter 2: Freedom for $19.99. When I got home I realized I picked up two Capcom games and was shocked. I’m not really a fan of Capcom to be honest despite my love for Alpha 3 and i’ll tell you why. They do a piss-poor job of developing their “next-gen” titles for SD televisions and it really bothers me. I would of loved to play Dead Rising back when it came out but the text in that game was so hard to read I would get a migraine.
I checked Capcom’s website to see what upcoming games are going to be released on the 360 and PS3 and all they really have is the new Bionic Commando game and Street Fighter IV. Neither of these games are text heavy so it should be ok. Basically, what I want to know is if Capcom is in the wrong for not making their games easier to read on standard-def T.V’s or should I just suck it up and buy and HDTV?
