XBLA Marketplace sees multiple game delistings before year end
Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year to everyone!
Unfortunately, it also comes that time when games may disappear from the marketplace for any number of reasons and is usually assumed as licenses expiring.
On December 30, 2014, Eastern Standard Time, the following games were removed from the Xbox Live Arcade Marketplace:
1. WRC Powerslide. Original release date: March 8, 2013.
This game wasn’t out for very long and never saw a XBLA sale. It was also a member of the games in that event in September of 2013 involving foreign countries.
2. Marvel vs. Capcom Origins. Original release date: September 26, 2012.
This game was announced for removal at the end of the year by Capcom ahead of time. While it is sad to see it go, at least it wasn’t a surprise.
3. Battle: Los Angeles. Original release date: March 11, 2011.
This game was a movie tie-in released around the same time the movie was released with very little fanfare. It has been around for some time and has gone away as quietly as its arrival.
There are more delisted games from December 30, 2014 below. Continue to find out.
4. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game. Original release date: August 25, 2010.
This game was also a movie tie-in that has been out for awhile and has seen numerous sales including one very recently during the holiday sale this month on Xbox. It is disappointing to see that all downloadable content associated with Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game has also been pulled from the marketplace as well.
5. UNO Rush. Original release date: March 25, 2009.
This game has been out for a long time and has finally disappeared quietly from the marketplace.
6. UNO. Original release date: May 9, 2006
This game was a classic on the Xbox 360 console and has finally been pulled from the marketplace. If you wish to play this game, UNO is available on the Xbox Live Arcade – Compilation Disc and downloadable codes may still exist for this title from sellers.
Games are constantly pulled from the Xbox Live Arcade Marketplace so if you have any games that you are interested in, look into buying it sooner rather than later.
