Right, that's it. I'm fed up with these plonkers trying to fob me off with rubbish when I call, so I'll update this thread everytime I speak to someone on my quest to find out oif the UK (PAL) Xbox supports HDTV and if not, why does the UK Burnout state it on the box.. My first contact was a couple of weeks ago when I emailed Criterion (Guildford) to ask if the game supported HDTV as it stated on the PAL box. Yes as long as you have a hi-def kit. Fine, I had already tried it and it didn;t work. At the same time I emailed Microsoft UK and they replied that using a hi-def kit would result in nothing higher than 480i (nice of them to reply though). So again I contacted Criterion, this time I got told I needed to ring Accalim as they were the publisher, so they gave me a phone number..only to be confronted with a "Hi, you've reached the Acclaim cheats and tips line..do you pay the phone bill at home.." arrghh.. I got bored again today so decided to ring Criterion again..this time I get a rather helpful young lady but who seems to have trouble saying HDTV..(HT what..HTVD etc etc)..She promises to sort it after I explain what I have tried in the past. She calls me back fuive minutes mater and says, you have to ring Acclaim as they publish the game and we offer no technical support..arrgghhh...grrrr.. So I ring another Acclaim number (which seems more promising), I ask the helpful cheery chap on the end of the phone "Can you tell me if Burnout on Xbox supports HDTV as it states on the box.?" - the reply was swift and short"If it says it on the box, yes definately"..err okay.. I told him I had tried and that it was getting to be a concern that the box stated it and the game didn;t support it... so now we wait...as he contacts someone else and will have them contact me in due course... Stay tuned for part two..soon..
