The American branch of Sony doesn't usually like selling 2D games on the PS2... Metal Slug 4 and 5 had to be bundled together, and Metal Slug 3 and SVC:Chaos weren't released in the US, they were Japan only...

Although they were released on the XBOX...

And poor Samarai Showdown V was released for the XBOX for a short period of time. I hate to see how much a copy is going to cost me...
