    Is the Complete Edition of Dirt 3 backwards compatible?

    They should just give those games as part of GwG before delisting them. I would of not mind any of those.
    The only problem with that is you will need a credit card to download xbox 360 GwG on the xbox one or through xbox.com

    Yet another kick in the teeth for an all digital future.

    Fuck sake, more of this shit.

    I just want notice, even a day would earn the devs at least a little money. It's just a huge fuck you to every gamer by closing it down. Just because I never bought it doesn't mean I wasn't going to buy it eventually.

    Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.
    It's very frustrating. I don't know how anyone can justify a future where games are only purchased digitally when stuff like this is still going on. Not even a bloody warning, hows that for a slap in the face for us gamers ?

    In a few years time, the 360 store will probably be empty.

    Well, guess I'm getting Amazing Spider-Man 1 and 2 physically then. Dammit.
    Looking to boost any MP achievements I don't have for any game I own.

    Well at least I got Axel and Pixel when they were practically giving it away ($1.99) in the September timeframe (hopefully it goes BC but I'm not counting on it). The other ones, I guess physical copy if I feel like it...though those weren't very good anyway.

    That is a great idea. Even though I'm horrible at it, I'd love to be able to re-download Marvel vs Capcom 2.

    man tmnt:mim isn't even a year old yet and they are delisting it. it's not that bad of a game and if you have friends to play with its actually quite fun for a time killer. tmnt:oots is by far the best tmnt game out to date imo. i was seriously just playing it yesterday because i love it. i'm really sorry to see these titles go (being a huge tmnt fan), but i have them already so not to worried and everything else is just whatevs.

    Phew glad they didn't pull the Zombie Apocalypse DLC yet. That seems unusual to pull the game and forget the DLC but I'm not complaining.

    Ordered a complete edition of Dirt 3 because it's cheaper than buying the DLC. Nothing else there I'd probably ever play and I have the Spidey games digitally already.

    What if it's a digital game that I've already purchased? Am I not able to redownload it still? So I've effectively been robbed...

    Of course you can download them still....you just can't purchase them anymore.

    I bet F1 2013 was delisted due the classic content (80s and 90s cars and tracks).

    For what it's worth Krinkle Krusher can't be bought anymore as well. It still shows on the marketplace but only as 'Not available '.

    Trash game publishers. Their customer focus extends to separating us from our money and little else.

    My greatest anxiety with Xbox One is the post spotlight of the system. what if one day in the next generation they remove the ability to install some or all of your physical copies, let alone and mostly the digital purchases.

    Checking the 360 store it isn't unusual to have minor memories about certain titles that aren't there anymore, at the glimps of insanity I'm finding out about their existence only that they have been delisted, my point with this is that it goes by with an exaggerated silence, what if Microsoft sent out (user chosen) mail about upcoming delistings?
    As many others tell they earn extra charge for this, why would this be wrong at all? I assume that the license providers wants it quiet due to the fact that the game is still having the publishers title on it, but at least they earn a 1000 bucks or so.

    To add among the worst examples of delistings there is "Crash Course 2".
    I have tried booting at random times since then due to "wishful" thinking from my part, now hearing about World Gone Sour etc it feels really uncomfortable.
