WARNING: DLC No Longer Available

Just a heads up to completionists. The DLC for this game (which includes achievements) is no longer available for purchase on the marketplace, so you won't be able to 1250 this unless you've already purchased the DLC.

WHAT!?!? I'm not going to lie, this has to be one of the worst decisions made by the developers of any game, including EA and 2k
I love to debate and argue. If you feel it becomes personal, lemme know and I will check it

Does anyone know exactly why they removed the DLC? I can only assume it was a licensing issue, but I'm not sure.
The end of the world might hurt a little bit... but it won't hurt next time.

Marvel was bought by Disney. Disney and Activision aren't actually pen pals.

It would still provide an income for Activision to keep it online, so unless Disney plans to take over the whole franchise, this still baffles me.
All work and no play makes Jos a dull boy.

I just hope Microsoft does something to prevent these kind of DLC shenanigans in the future.

Oh and this also counts for MUA1

Phew, good thing i can get MUA1's on a disc, since i already bough the game! I think this tops EA shutting down Madden 09 servers

Fortunately the game is still so expensive that I hadn't even come anywhere near it. That will likely stay that way.

On the subject of EA, I don't think I will be purchasing many more of their games if they are just going to shut down servers.
