Dead Rising text to remain illegible

Sadly, there's no chance of a patch to fix the non-HD tiny text issue - can't be done, says Capcom

Fed up with being unable to read the text in the otherwise awesome Dead Rising on your pathetic little non-HD television? Well, tough! Capcom has, somewhat ruefully, admitted that it won't be able to generate a patch to fix the problem.

To be precise, what the company said was: "Due to the amount of text and the size of the patch necessary to change the text, a patch isn't possible for this issue. We had asked the team if it was even possible but... due to the scope of what a patch would need to cover, it wasn't possible."

Which is a shame. There are a number of non-patch solutions you can employ, however: 1) buy an HD-Ready TV, 2) buy a magnifying glass or 3) squint really hard while sitting an inch from your TV. Never let it be said that we don't offer the highest-quality advice...
