    Same for HK too. But as jecebn says, thankfully we're not missing much..... Their efforts seem to be overshadowed by those from indie developers.

    I guess I will give those a pass, nontheless. Namco/Bandai is doing and better job in porting their titles over. Let's see what Sega can do.

    Same with Poland (no DDR and MGST). I was thinking whether it has anything to do with existing distribution agreement with some companies in the area. If the have exclusive agreements to distribute Konami products then probably Konami cannot put it on App Store as Apple is the distributor. Then again Konami could simply re-negotiate, but hey - can't expect Japanese to be flexible.

    Do you have some sort of Konami HK or Konami Asia?

    Maybe things are more complicated for these bigger game dev companies.

    What a traitor, konami is a Japanese company, right? Japan is still a part of Asia, right? So, WTF??

    theres only konami gaming and konami australia on their website ... dun see anytin else ...

    i come bk to the same point .. they are missing out of potential launch sales ... if they have a delayed release (if ever), then the hype would hv died down ....

    not very the smart of the japs ...

    They did lost 1 already - after giving it more thought I decided not to buy MGST based on scarity of content. If the released it immediately with the rest of EU things might've been different.
