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."
