Rare apologises over Banjo SD text issue

Monday, 10th November 2008 15:41 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Rare’s issued an apology over last week’s favourite storm dans le teacup, the issue of whether or not players with SD TVs would be able to read text in Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts.

Text in the retail version is too small to be read properly, apparently.

“Apologies for any crossed wires and confusion since the issue was raised. Hopefully now everyone will feel confident in their ability to play the game as it was intended,” said the firm in a statement.

“If you’re unsure whether the text size will be a problem for you prior to the release of the update, it may be worth downloading the Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts demo over Xbox Live or seeing it on a friend’s console to judge for yourself.”

Rare’s George Kelion already confirmed over the weekend that a fix would be made to ensure those playing on SD TVs would see readable text.

    I hereby announce that I have no intention of fixing any bugs or problems in any of my future games. This statement will be retracted in due course.

    It’s fine JPickford, we gave your games a collective 2.8/10.

    You’d do well to stay on the PR side of your future games.. VERY well.
