Well of course it's removed because it's canceled for the 360 in Japan.

SMH.

Indeed, pretty obvious news. What I care more about is the release of this collection, as I have been waiting for it for quite some time. There has been close to no news on it for a long time, so if it's supposed to come out this year, they could have fooled me.

That was the first thing that came to my mind when I read the headline; When is the collection coming out? It has to be some time before Rising comes out right? Yet we haven't heard much about it. The demo being canceled is actually the first news we had about the collection for a while.

i think they should cancel ZOE HD as well cause everybody will buy the PS3 version because of the demo.

Obviously. The Xbox 360 version of the game was cancelled in Japan. Stupid idea, by the way. Though small, why cut out that piece of the pie when the game is already being made for that platform?

simply because what they expect they will sell is below what they will spend to publish the game on 360.

Probably true enough.

Yeah Metal Gear is a PS3 exclusive in Japan. Oh well, the rest of the world will enjoy Metal gear on Xbox though.

Its evident with a game like Rising would get shafted in Japan. They aren't expecting a real sales difference, as well as the Xbox is minority in Japan. With that being said Platinum Games won't get backlash from "360" owners in Japan because there's very little of them and more than half probably own a PlayStation anyway, so they don't care.

This game should get cancelled on 360 all together.. Halo is good enough on there
