HMV: Forget about the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of No More Heroes!
Retailer disses HD remake to promote Wii sequel.
Remember how crappy the PS360 version of No More Heroes was? It was so crappy that Marvelous had to release a patch in May to up the "stability."
If you do still remember the horrendous load times and other issues with the game, you're the target of a special message that was included in HMV's No More Heroes 2 listing today:
"Forget about what happened with the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions! A new No More Heroes!! More extreme!!! More sexy!!!! It will live again on Wii!!!!"
The actual text of the listing also mentions the epic failure of the HD remake, saying, "In April, with the release on PS3 and Xbox 360, it came to 'appropriate hardware,' something that fans had wanted. However, the actual game was a bit (?) buggy, and a patch was offered a month after release."
That "?" is in the actual listing.
The font above the screens looks pretty official. I wonder if MMV had anything to do with this...
[Update 7/17: HMV has removed the above text from the page. In its place: "We apologize for the inappropriate statement that was on this page." Looks like this was HMV text rather than MMV text.]
