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.
No, its been relisted, not delisted lol
Whoops, my bad and that actually makes more sense...and pleases me since I need the game and really don't want another disc. Too early and just started drinking my coffee. Reading that makes me think that Castlevania game may be a future GWG then.

gamer=CoreScan]Star Wars Jedi Knight (Xbox OG) is published by Activision in Europe
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.
It's something at least. I'm also pretty happy that I will be able to play the title. toast
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.
No idea if the deal is over. Maybe Microsoft and Lucas Arts had to go through them to get their blessing for the digital release in Europe. We don't really know that.

I was actually really interested in #WarGames and was just hoping for a sale. Oh well.

If anyone still wants a way to get Tetris Ultimate, Newegg is still selling digital codes for it here: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1683213...

I just bought one and redeemed it myself so I can confirm it works. No idea how many more codes they have though so if you want one, better to jump on it sooner rather than later.

Tetris delist is surprising considering it's the only one readily available on the One.

You stream the episodes. If you didn't get it then you've missed absolutely nothing. The game is in an almost unplayable state right now.

So I never heard too many positive things about Wargames but when games get delisted and have no retail edition after 6 months, I guess you really have to buy everything full price to not get locked out of easy 1000G's. Luckily that's a 8-10 hour game but it gives me an itchy finger to buy 1-2 hour games right now instead of waiting months for sale. :/

The game was streamed from their website/server. As you can guess, it ran poorly. Episodes refusing to start, constant disconnections, and progress not saving correctly.

Very happy about Castlevania LoS. Need a sale on that asap.

Didn't even know about that Ghostbusters game, thought it was the 360 game. Wish I picked that up now.

This is my wish as well.

The only way I've been able to guess a game is being delisted is when it goes on an extraordinary sale, like 85% off or so. If you see a game that usually sells for say $20 go for $3.75-5.00, it's probably a good idea to buy it if you had half an interest in ever playing it.

Now that's not always the case, but it has happened with a few things recently. Contrast (X360) was 80% off, and the Monster Jam games were 75% off for example, and disappeared shortly after. There are others that aren't coming to mind right now.

Haha don't worry, you're not missing out on anything. I had a look a while ago when it was on sale, it looked basically like a mobile game ported to console, and the ratings were terrible.

Weird some rather new games being delisted.

Also the last Ghostbusters got delisted and the old Xbox 360 game is not.
Well, that one is better anyway. headspin

I was waiting for a sale for Wargames since it seemed like a pretty easy completion (aside from the bugs and lag).
