SO, they take demos away?

I can't find the goldeneye reloaded demo on xbla for the life of me...best buy has the game for $14.99 but I was wanting to replay the demo before diving in

also, I'm seeing more and more games with NO demos..games like Lost Planet 3 and Armored Core V lost my sale.

All content from Goldeneye Reloaded has been delisted.

LP3 and ACV never had demos to begin with.

Activision no longer controls the license, nobody seems willing to jump through the hoops presented by the present owner of the 007 James Bond property as well.

That is why the final games was a rush job which caused Eurocom to be no more last year, Activision needed that out prior to the expiry date and hopefully get the continuation out afterwards. It had one of the worst endings (it was literally text for implied DLC), ever.

You also can not keep a demo and other data assets online when their is no longer a license to be had from a publisher.

Since when have they ever released demos for full retail games as XBLA titles?

They don't release them as XBLA titles, they release them as demos.

Exactly, so why is the TC look for them as XBLA titles?

Some people mistakenly refer to the marketplace as XBLA.

Irregardless, for all intensive purposes I could care less if you take me for granite. If given free reign, I'll continue to tow the line so it's a mute point.
