Why didn't Microsoft pick this one up?

I'm super curious about this(I mainly joinned so I could ask tongue), does anyone know why this game was never made availible for the Xbox or the Xbox 360. It creates an annoying gap for me now. Because I played the first one on the family Xbox, and then my father won an Xbox 360, so for consoles, all we have is Microsoft, and I want to get the third game, but without the second it'll prolly lessen the experience. It just seems really weird that they'd release the first and third for Microsoft consoles, but not thesecond... hmm

Fortunately, back in my childhood I bought a Gameboy Advance(more in to gaming back then, now all I really bother following is Spyro), so I guess that's lucky. I can maybe find a GBA version... I wish it's come out wfor PSP, Spyro games are weirder to play on Nintendo platforms... lmao... Well at least the other spyro games on GBA were a bit weird to play.

Any information why they skipped this game on Xbox appreciated! smile

yes well it is very difficult on the wii you see. There's alot of remote swinging and yelling involved. + when you use the Fury, the nunchuk doesn't work that well.

LOL. I know that. They are soooooo hard... sometimes i get one just from luck and actually save myself.  You can get killed if you miss one.. Moving is still much easier with wii. Fury attacks can be annoying too. You can get it just by luck, but when you miss it when you REALLY need it then you die.

Yeah, that is pretty annoying. I played ANB on xbox too and started wondering why microsoft didnt pick it up. Great that my uncle has wii so i bought it from an internet auction house and play it once in a month or so.

Yeah and the answer: Microsoft didnt bother to buy it when they saw how bad ANB was.
