Metal Gear Solid Revengeance

Metal Gear Solid: Revengeance for Xbox 360 cancelled in Japan

At this point, Konami has pretty much given up on the Xbox 360 in Japan. Konami’s upcoming Metal Gear Solid: Revengeance will be a PlayStation 3-exclusive in the Land of the Rising Sun.

Konami pulled the same stunt with Silent Hill HD and Silent Hill: Downpour in Japan, and to be honest, this is both hilarious and depressing. It’s by no means a hidden fact that Microsoft’s Xbox 360 simply does not sell well in Japan, and Konami’s now-defunct support of the system should, at the very least, be a wake-up call for Microsoft to aggressively market in Japan. As of right now, though, Revengeance is still set to release on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in Europe, America, and other territories that don’t include Japan.
