If you are a second class citizen, then what am I here in the PAL ghetto?
???? According to HDGames.net there are a few games released that support high resolution but are not 16:9. Strange since HD MUST BE WIDESCREEN.
Ouch, your correct. There is no one around that gets shafted on a regular basis as consistently as the PAL gamers. I read about how developers (publishers?) are striping HD support for games, WTF is an understatement. I've heard that while 16:9 televisions are wide-spread in the EU actual HD penetration is lower then the US, not sure if they are using that as an excuse but I still don't understand it. HD support it already there! Why cut a feature that already exists when it costs you no additional money?
I've become a fan of HDgames.net
(consistant network problems?) and HDTV Arcade
and have contributed to at least one title on HDG on confirmation of specs. Even many people their don't which games are widescreen and at what resolutions. And they shouldn't have to.
Amorph is right with gameplay and testing. That is why all games should be design for HD
. Hollywood, for decades, has worked with high quality widescreen video but managed to release it for 4:3 televisions. Many directors shoot with 4:3 boundaries in mind, same as video game developers should.
The game industry makes more revenue then the movie industry and they need to begin showing it.
