According to numerous reports from gaming journalists and many gamers in general, it has been confirmed that Rare's latest video game outing to foray on the Xbox 360 has a technical problem. Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts in game text is near unreadable on standard, CRT televisions (SDTV's). This is a similar problem that Capcom's Dead Rising had a couple of years ago.
This issue was first raised once the demo of the game went live on Microsoft's online service. But Considering the game is heavily filled with in-game text mainly consisting of speech, dialogue, plot details and game instructions, this could be a major concern and turn off to possible BK buyers with a standard television set.

Unfortunately Rare has no plans to remedy this critical issue. Rare's own George Kelion has stated:
I'm sorry that we weren't able to address this issue as nothing would please us more than turning all your complaints into gleeful responses, but it's simply something that's too expensive in terms of time, resources and money to alter.
An issue like this could sure put a purple patch onto one of the most anticipated games on the year. You would think that such an issue would've been discovered early on in the development process.
