Are you kidding me, M$ permanently removed all DLC to Project Gotham Racing 4

The PGR4 board is dead, so I'm asking if anyone knows here.

Went back to play PGR4 after realizing PRG4 still holds up favorably to even the next gen racers shown at e3.
I wanted to buy the extra DLC to get more replay out of the game & to my surprise, EVREYTHING related to PGR4 has been delisted. No demos, no themes, no DLC, nothing.

I searched online & found M$ gave this b.s. PR message on why they took it off:
"At this time we have no plans to relist this content on Xbox LIVE Marketplace but our goal remains to give our community new games, new entertainment, new experiences and new ways to connect with friends on Xbox LIVE."


Is there no way for me to ever play the DLC cars or the DLC races or is it gone forever?


Same thing happened to PGR3 and it's DLC, and tons of other games as well.

This is the problem with digital distribution, everything is temporary, and M$ is pushing towards making even more things temporary with the X-Bone, including their little "group Achievements" plan that's time-limited so everyone that buys the game late is screwed.


What the hell is this "group Achievements" thing?

They're called "challenges", they're time-limited, group based, and can span multiple games. So if anyone buys a game too far after it's release date, they're screwed.

If all of B.C.'s content was taken down before the contracted expiration dates, that's a violation of those contracts.

In bankruptcy, the trustee can either affirm and accept an executory contract or terminate and surrender it.

At least they didn't pull an EA and delete the demo from the download History, it's still there at least.

The developer Bizarre Creations went out of business.


Point being?

Geometry Wars Retro Evolved is still available on the marketplace, is it not?

Guess who developed that.

Go ahead, I'll give you 3 guessess, but, you should only need 1.

That game was not burdened with multiple contracts for licensed vehicles designed by several competing vehicle manufacturers.

Screwed out of an achievement that doesn't even count towards your score. Big freaking deal.

It'll bother people like me who don't care about the score but do care about the completion%.
