Well, that Wargames tie-in didn't last long. Also, Tetris Ultimate was available on disc?

I guess few publishers are dumb enough to delist a game without giving it away via GwG or even making it available via Game Pass first - especially a retail game that bombed as bad as Ghostbusters. Considering it's an Activision game, though, that move didn't come as the slightest surprise. Has there ever been a GwG title published by Activision? I don't think so, though I might be wrong.

Glad I picked up #WarGames. I'll grab Castlevania when it goes on sale next.
Praise the Sun!

Sorry it wasn't. I got a bit too trigger happy with copy/paste. I've removed it now.

I was unable to grt #WarGames because it wasn't available in my country although I was very intrigued. Was it any good?

Crap. I was hoping Tetris Ultimate would someday go GWG to make the ratios really skyrocket :/

You'd think they'd announce the delistings prior to delisting to give people a chance to purchase them.
There is always a way.

It was okay. I felt it was worth the asking price, with that said, you're not missing much and you could get the gist of the experience by watching a video of a playthrough.
Praise the Sun!

Still not buying AER without a discount!

LOL! Yeah, THAT sounds like Activision - giving us an OG Xbox game released 16 years ago.

By GwG I meant Xbox 360 and One, not games of the 6th console generation.

Strange the C&C 3: Kane's Wrath being delisted since it just became backward compatible just last month. I'd bet this one is temporary unless it has to do with one of the actor's likeness in the game that needs relicensing.

Obviously you need to re-read that they put up digital copies of that and castlevania Los.

You can't count that as an Activision game, they were merely the distributor in the European region of the physical discs and have no control over the IP...and that deal has long expired as well. The also had nothing to do with the digital distribution of the game, not even in Europe. So no, Activision has not yet released any game as a GWG to date nor is is expected to in the near future. Yet they have released at least a couple for PS Plus - Destiny (just before Bungie announced they were taking over publishing) and Prototype 2.
