Capcom has ruled out patching Dead Rising on Xbox 360 to increase the size of the on-screen text, despite complaints from people playing the game on standard-definition TVs.

"Dead Rising was optimised for HD and we offered some suggestions for SD TV owners," a spokesperson for the US arm of the company told 1UP.

"[But] due to the amount of text and size of the patch necessary to change the text, a patch isn't possible for this issue."

That's a bit of a shame for those of you without the requisite equipment. Dead Rising uses some pretty titchy fonts for its radio messages and mission details, but it appears as an unreadable blur on most non-HD TVs.
