Madword480i Madworld, the upcoming tricolour gore-fest has been confirmed to run at only 480i, and not the more HD-TV friendly progressive scan 480p. The confirmation comes courtesy of Matt Casamassina’s blog on IGN, who defended Madworld developers Platinum games saying –

“Usually, lack of 480p support can be credited to developer laziness. No way such a claim can be leveled at Platinum Games or MadWorld. This is a AAA developer which constantly pushes the artistic limits and MadWorld is the latest proof of that. I’m wondering, then, if the studio simply wasn’t aware that 480p is "kind of a big deal" for a chunk of Wii owners.”

Is it really that big a deal? If you’re looking for crisp visuals, are you maybe not playing on the wrong console?

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • It’s a Wii game… do we care about the graphics or the gameplay here?

  • easy

    graphics no, but surely gameplay is kinda important?

    Half Life 2 runs at 480i on my SD TV and I get headaches if I play too long :cwy:
