Same for HK too. But as jecebn says, thankfully we're not missing much..... Their efforts seem to be overshadowed by those from indie developers.

I guess I will give those a pass, nontheless. Namco/Bandai is doing and better job in porting their titles over. Let's see what Sega can do.

Same with Poland (no DDR and MGST). I was thinking whether it has anything to do with existing distribution agreement with some companies in the area. If the have exclusive agreements to distribute Konami products then probably Konami cannot put it on App Store as Apple is the distributor. Then again Konami could simply re-negotiate, but hey - can't expect Japanese to be flexible.

Do you have some sort of Konami HK or Konami Asia?

Maybe things are more complicated for these bigger game dev companies.

Same thing here in Indonesia...
What a traitor, konami is a Japanese company, right? Japan is still a part of Asia, right? So, WTF??
