This sort of thing matters to a lot of people, so here we go. According to Matt Casamassina’s blog, Platinum’s MadWorld runs at 480i. Not 480p.

Buy it anyway. It looks awesome. As Matt says:

You must still buy this game, but this omission raises an interesting point. Usually, lack of 480p support can be credited to developer laziness.

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.

What’s the difference between an “i” and a “p,” anyway? It’s out next month.
