I Can't Abuse Monkeys In HD?

So I found out that Metal Gear Solid 3 in the HD collection isn't going to contain that "Snake vs. Monkeys" mini game that was in the original version of MGS 3. Sure, those monkeys are a part of Sony's  Ape Escape series, but still, Koblami could of at least keep it in the PS3 version only. I mean, they're willing to implement that data transferring thingy for the PSP version of Peace Walker, so why not go a little further for the PS3 game? It was a PS2 exclusive. And I believe Xbox owners wouldn't care for it. Not unless the Xbox owners create a petition for Koblami to change the monkeys into children. It' s not go to say that Xbox owners like to hunt down children, it's just an example. 
 
And let me tell you this, nothing get my "nickers in a twist" (I think that's what the British people say) than hunting down cartoon monkeys in a jungle. But now that I know that's it's not in there, I am so bummed. 
 
What are your thoughts?

Yeah kind of disappointing it's not in the PS3 version and like you said Xbox players shouldn't care or feel like they are losing out on something because Ape Escape is owned by Sony.

That was a weird fucking mode, I remember it made refrences to Sam Fisher and Gabe Logan. Also your kidding yourself if you think Xbox ownerers wouldn't raise a shitstorm and mulitply threads "questioning which version is the best?"

This could have been a clever reference.

This is a travesty. Next think you'll be telling me is that they cut the skateboarding bonus game out of MGS2.

Bummer. I was also hoping for a new VA cast. Or the chance to play as Raiden again.

I do not think that phrase means what you think it means. Getting your knickers in a twist is to become irritated, as one might if their knickers were twisted up.

edit: derp spelling

I've heard that Konami even removed the Secret Theater.

The nightmare segment is cut. I had a genuine mind fuck when that happened, it was at like 1am on a school night and I couldn't believe what was happening.
