According to Major Nelson, Xbox Live's Conflict: Denied Ops demo isn't being released in Germany. A German source this morning confirmed the reasoning.
"It hasn't been banned here," he told VG247. "It has an 18 rating, but it seems they made some cuts to it. So they're not offering the uncut demo here."
The shooter, releasing in Europe next week, takes the Pivotal-developed, Eidos-published series to the current generation of hardware, and even includes a soundtrack from Sega music favourite Richard Jaques. Fancy.
