Speaking via Twitter PES’ European team leader Jon Murphy announced: "Sorry to confirm that due to issues on both sides we can't release the 1st PES2012 demo for 360.”
Based on a preview build of the upcoming football sim the original PES 2012 demo hit the Sony PlayStation Network late last month allowing PS3 gamers to sample the FIFA 12 rival alongside their PC counterparts.
Whilst the first PES 2012 demo for Xbox has be culled pre-launch Murphy was keen to stress the second playable demo is still 360 bound. He said: We - Konami, the PES team and myself - are all really, really sorry. On a brighter note we'll announce the next demo shortly and release is just around the corner. Hope you still give it a try."
