For those who have played Dead Rising on a standard definition television, you aren't completely blind yet -- the headline on top is factual. Dead Rising is on sale this week at Best Buy for $39.99, which is cheaper than buying it used from most retailers. Why the strong price drop? No idea, but we certainly made a call to Best Buy corporate to find out. Sadly, it's Sunday, so we aren't expecting an answer today.

The reviews for Dead Rising were kind given its awkward save system and structural issues. Also, insult was added to injury when Capcom squashed any hopes of patching the standard definition tiny-text problem. So, take those $20 you're gonna save and put it toward an HDTV fund -- or a pair of designer glasses.
