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.
And that's likely a reason it was removed from sale. According to Eko's twitter, they do plan to bring it back to the xbox store at some point though.

Wondered why Ghostbusters was so cheap in the last sale. Thankfully picked it up!

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.
Thanks for the heads up, how much time did it took for you to get the code? I am trying to do it, but not sure if it will work since I am not in the US.

Edit: Works for me, took a hour to get the code.

It will be on sale in 10 days. The guy that runs Storeparser, always post on CAG a countdown with upcoming sale, I saw it on that list.

They should definitely give a warning a month before or so. That would be beneficial to everyone, the gamers that would have a last chance to buy them, and the developers that could make a bit of money before the delisting.

With the game being delisted, the servers may not be long for this world either. Architecting the game to use server-side video distribution had to cause significant on-going operations costs.

Getting the old "We do everything we can to ensure the best shopping experience possible. Occasionally due to complications that arise during the verification process, not every order is able to be processed when our system detects an error." from Newegg sadly.

Ordering from GameStop gave me a code that just ended up being a $10 Gift Card.

Last place selling seems to be Dell's Online Store.

Anyone else having any luck?

Maybe try Newegg again with Paypal or Masterpass.

This is so true in regards to digital games/content, By Brad Stephenson @onMSFT, " This remains one of the biggest issues many have with the transition to digital content. If rights aren't extended, Whole video games can be lost forever ".
