This sums it up pretty wee, I think.

Not technically HD, but with its screen size, the DPI and picture quality have been fairly universally praised. HD really doesn't mean much in the context of a separate peripheral. The point is that they can easily scale the experience from a HD tv to this controller and most gamers due the size of the screen would barely notice the difference.

It did come across that you were going to be a dick. TC asked a question, he was given an answer and because it said no HD you seemed to go into defensive fanboy mode.
