So, as a result of MS having the policy where if its not a simultaneous release for all systems or MS gets it first, then it won't let publishers / devs put their games up on the xbox live marketplace...

I think that's an extremely petty and under-handed business practice on M$'s part. "Simultaneous launch" bullshit, since PSN doesn't update on the same day. It puts the squeeze on small developers to either comply with their demands and launch sooner on XBL or they won't allow them to publish on their service at all. Either way, consumers get the shaft.

The first time I heard the theory that this was somehow related to the MS policy, I didn't think it was likely. I mean, unless Microsoft called them up after the release and said "Take it down or we won't put it on XBL", I figured the company would have already been aware of the MS policy. However, with this statement I'm now leaning towards it being likely that it's related to MS. If that is the case...total BS.
