And of course you need an HDMI in order to do splitscreen. Great game, I play it on PC all the time, but c'mon. The only reason why I'd get minecraft on xbox is because of splitscreen. I mean, that's all the trailer brags about... and yet you need certain requirements. I have an HD tv.... but why pay extra for a cord when you bought the game? Is there something in the splitscreen coding that makes it so you need an HDMI?

the official reason is that the gui would be unreadable in SD splitscreen. I'm quite sure if you try to splitscreen in sd it just wont let you.

If your xbox has a hdmi port, the leads are cheap as chips on amazon and ebay. It really does improve the clarity of the console too.

If it doesnt, you can get an xbox hd lead for about 10 - 15 quid

It's hard enough to read some stuff on a 42" HD plasma in split screen so I'd hate to try it in SD. I suppose it'd be better on an lcd or am I mistaken?

I have an SD TV and I have played split-screen through a glitch.

It was perfectly legible. There was no reason for them to lock a feature for no reason, but they did it anyway.

Personally, I think it is because they wanted everyone to give it 5 stars/buy it and were afraid a little blurriness would lessen sales.

You guys need to get your eyes checked or something.

I play it in 4 player split-screen on a 40" tv, and I sit at least 6-10 feet away, and I have no problem.

A little burriness is quite sad. I mean, I'm sure they'd have more sales if they made it in SD. I know of lots of friend's who play their consoles on T.V.'s smaller than 40''. It really is a big disappointment. :s

I'm sure we would have heard about a gltich regarding SPlitscreen being available in SD.

Splitscreen in SD was unplayable.
