I purchased this game and just finished it. The CC isn't hard to find but I
agree they don't tell you about it. Developers should know that people, not
just the hearing impared, do use this feature. I even use it at times. I
also agree that advertising these features should be done. It needs to be on
the box and on their websites.

Subject: [games_access] New game features closed captioning

Hey all,

SiN: Episodes released by Ritual Entertainment (my previous employeer)
a couple weeks ago features closed captioning. Unfortunately, due to a
bug, it's actually missing some key dialog, but for the most part it
does have captions for sounds and dialog. So that makes it the 4th
game.

Unfortunately, I'm sure 99% of the players won't know that. There's no
advertisement of this feature at all. I only mention that because I'm
trying to think of ways to spread the idea of CC more. It's not enough
for me to write about it over at http://gamescc.rbkdesign.com/, my
site only gets a small number of people visiting it. But if games
start advertising that as a feature, more and more people will see it
and then eventually, it'll become expected and standard in games, I
hope.

-Reid
