Those playing Mass Effect 2 on standard definition televisions and having a hard time reading the smaller text in the game are a bit s.o.l., as there is no way to fix it.
According to BioWare, it can’t be fixed with a patch.
“We understand that on some (SDTVs) the smallest text in Mass Effect 2 can be difficult to read,” project manager Michael Gamble wrote on the official forums. “While this was not an intentional result, it was a byproduct of the enhancements to the user interface.
“After investigating potential solutions, we have determined that while this issue does affect a small portion of SDTV owners, we are unable to resolve it for Mass Effect 2 through a title update.”
Gamble said the issue will be looked into with Mass Effect 3, which is expected sometime around 2012.
The earth will be gone by then, surely, so it won’t matter unless there’s Xbox 360s in Hell.
