People STILL complain about small text in games?

No, it is you with the problem, as you cannot UNDERSTAND what you see. That is not saying that a HD TV is necessary, merely compatible. Does the box say that you NEED a TV? No.


It doesn't say you need electricity either. I think you have a good case, get your lawyer. Think of all the painfully obvious things they forgot to put on the package!

A) It is a statment of compatibility, not necessity, which is totally different to the matter under discussion, and


It says nothing of SD compatibility, so... more to the point, your entire complaint hinges on needing to read the text as it is "necessary". It isn't. You can play Dead Rising without reading on screen text.

B) No one is talking about sueing, as that would be pointless. All you would be liable for it your purchase money back, and sueing would cost a *lot* more than that,.


Well... if a store can't be sued over it, follow along here, they have no reason to refund your money (beyond their own choice). Because no law was broken.

>Actually, that is incorrect. PC games and software, and console games cannot under any circumstances be refunded once the product leaves the store. Atleast this was the policy in PC World Purley Way. Where this idea that you can open a PC game and refund it came from is beyond me, especially with product keys, activation and piracy being a factor these days.

Riiiiiight. So according to you, if you buy a game, say the last copy of that game that the shop has, and you get home and open it up to find out that the disc is physically broken in half, then you can't take it back for a refund?

Of course you can. Yes, the shop will try to make you accept a replacement, but BY LAW they have to refund your money the first time you take it back.

ONCE AGAIN, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ASK SOMEONE WHO KNOWS - JUST GO TO A C.A.B. OFFICE AND ASK THEM.


>No, it is you with the problem, as you cannot UNDERSTAND what you see. That is not saying that a HD TV is necessary, merely compatible. Does the box say that you NEED a TV? No.

No, because the TV is accepted as being an obvious necessity. But a HD TV is not.


>It doesn't say you need electricity either. I think you have a good case, get your lawyer. Think of all the painfully obvious things they forgot to put on the package!

Again, go and ask someone who has legal experience. Go on.

That is true. But other games need the text to be legible to be played properly, RPGS for example.


>>B) No one is talking about sueing, as that would be pointless. All you would be liable for it your purchase money back, and sueing would cost a *lot* more than that,.

Alright, then GO ON AND CHECK WITH SOMEONE WHO HAS LEGAL EXPERIENCE.
