    Would be nice if they gave us some kind of warning... unless I missed one.

    How does this effect games that have been previously downloaded but aren't currently on a console? Will they disappear from our download history or be impossible to redownload?

    That depends on the game. If you have purchased a game that has since been delisted, it may remain in your download history for you to redownload at any time. Unfortunately, some also take the other route and can never be redownloaded. As I don't own any of the above, I can't tell you whether you can redownload those titles or not.

    TMNT: Mutants in Manhattan was really just a test to see if you were clinically insane, as wanting to buy it is one of the official presentations of the illness, so this is good news for you.

    You can't. When you digitally purchase a game it says so before confirming the transaction.

    I havent had any games delisted that I couldn't re-download from my history, it was just a real pain on the 360 to do it. I recently downloaded Scott Pilgrim vs the World and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 on the 360, both were delisted years ago. You need to search through your history, which could be quite large. On the XB1, delisted games will still be ready to install.

    The real problem on the 360 is if you pin any title that gets delisted, you can never remove the pin, likewise you can't pin any delisted titles for some reason. The former is definitely the worst of the two when you have a limit on your number of pins.

    That joke went waaaaaaay over your head, and even then that is not entirely true.

    Whoooooooooosh

    Can anyone recommend any of these games, or should one just pass? Just wondering, since I was thinking about looking up the disc versions.

    STOP MAKING NINJA TURTLE GAMES. If you look at the series on TA 75% are delisted. Activision you are the worst.

    I liked The Amazing Spider-Man. It's fun enough and a pretty painless completion.

    I got Battle LA when it relisted so nothing of value was lost. Not saying the game was good though

    Is 7 months the shortest amount of time for a game to be on the marketplace? The most recent TMNT game came out in May 2016...
    Game On.

    Hey, Activision also removed the Wipeout series (all 4.) I submitted game info update but it doesn't seem like you guys are aware. Tis the season for delistings!

    Warlords (2012) Achievements would like to have a word with you guys. It was up for 1, 2? days before it was pulled. Didn't come back until 2 years later.

    They should just give those games as part of GwG before delisting them. I would of not mind any of those.
    Gimme the loot

    So are those Xbox One games the first two ever to be delisted from the console?
