HD required for Minecraft 360 split-screen, Microsoft not issuing refunds

It seems that in order to take advantage of Minecraft's split-screen capabilities on Xbox 360 for its split-screen capabilities, you will need to own a high-definition television. By now, most people have an HDTV of some sort, but some do not, and split-screen in Minecraft 360 will not work on older, non-HD televisions. Some players were not aware of this, as the listing on Xbox Live isn't clear on the matter. However, upon booting the game up a message indicates you will need to play the game in HD mode in order to play split screen. Many players have asked Microsoft for their $20 back, but so far, Microsoft is refusing refunds so you may wish to consider this before purchasing. Thanks, Kotaku.
