NG2 xbox.com page updated; no more demo?

So far Ninja Gaiden 2's demo has yet to see release to the Marketplace, and for some time now, the game's xbox.com page had a message for its readers, telling them to: "Get your hands on the free demo coming to Xbox LIVE Marketplace in May." While it is true that May isn't over until the end of the week, the xbox.com page no longer has the message promising the demo's arrival, and instead points readers to the Ask a Ninja videos. (Ninja Gaiden 2 Sigma, Xbox 360)

I actually think no demo is a BIG mistake. Certain games benefit from demos. A lot of people don't know what NG is about and they will be looking for a demo.

After seeing the reviews, people sure will want to play a demo.

Maybe it's best that they don't
I wouldn't want my day ruined by a terrible camera and F'd framerate. It's probably best to leave this to the sheep who will buy anything XBOX exclusive.

Def a mistake

This better not be happening. I still plan on buying the game but a demo would give a great taste of what's to come.

This sucks.

So buy the game.

NG1 and NG Sigma each had demos (pretty comprehensive, one level demos with stat tracking). Would be a mistake not to include a demo of NG2 (though as release approaches, a demo seems more and more unlikely as the NG demos appeared about one month before release if I remember correctly).

I really want a demo to play for fun
I already know I will like the game. I have already mastered the camera, I just wanna play a little now. Im sure the demo will help sales, even with the problems, cause alot of people dont know much about ninja gaiden. They could even make the demo easy so people will like it more.

I played the sigma demo for months despite the fact I already had NG Black.

Finaly got Sigma used (in perfect condition :D ) due to anticipation of NG2 and no NG2 Demo.

You gotta be kidding me! I was so looking forward to this demo!

May be they just didn't have time to get the demo done for trying to get it out before MGS4.

Was anticipating a demo...
I've never played a NG game before, and a demo would help me make the decision. Lack of a demo makes the decision for me, which is no buy.

I'm pretty...
... sure there will be a demo. Just not by the end of this month.
Patience is a virtue.

So far the promises made have not been upheld in my eyes at all...
Last time the promised us content and we got a silly games after they changed the release date multiple time and finally didn't even bother to update it.

I'm getting more fed up with the way things are handled at this point. Empty promises and lack of proper updates.

Stupid decision.. I never had an xbox so I never played the original, and the ngs demo was the only reason why I bought it for the ps3. I played the demo and was hooked.

It might have been the same for 360 owners who didn't have an xbox and don't know how awesome the series really is.
