XBLA Delists

Nearly two months have passed since I last had to include this category in the content roundup. Unfortunately, a large gap also means a large number of delists at once -- six to be exact. These are the games that have been removed and are no longer available for purchase:

Bang Bang Racing
Dead Block
Pacific Rim: The Video Game
Serious Sam HD: The Second Encounter
SkyDrift
Trouble Witches Neo

DLC Delists

The bad news continues. After a lot of debate as to whether its removal was deliberate or accidental, developer Turn 10 has confirmed that the Forza Motorsport 4 DLC has officially been “end of lifed”. None of the DLC, including the achievement bearing "Porsche Expansion Pack", can be downloaded by new purchasers. However, if you have purchased the content previously, you can still redownload it from your purchase history.

This DLC joins the recently removed Mafia II content. While both of these DLCs can no longer be purchased from the marketplace, they are still available on disc.
