    After Burner Climax is apparently gone now, seems Sega decided to de-list the game early.

    Jack shit.
    Can someone check to see if the iOS version is gone too? No idea if it was on Android or not.

    Still on the Google Play store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sega.afterburner

    Jack shit.
    Just realizing that the wiki page for After Burner Climax has no PSN prices whatsoever.

    Alien: Colonial Marines and Alien vs. Predator are no longer on Steam.

    $9.99 USD Source - Kotaku / Source - IGN

    I bought it on the 15th of this month, so looking through my bank statement I can confirm that it was £6.49 GBP.

    EDIT: Although it looks like it started at £7.99 Source - Push Square / Source - DigitalSpy

    EDIT 2: 900 Yen on PSN (IGN)

    EDIT 3: I've updated the PSN prices on the After Burner Climax wiki page, however the European price doesn't seem to want to update. Am I being a doofus or is something broken?

    If it's in GBP then you should use psn_rrp_uk instead of eu. There isn't a parameter for Euros yet, so I'll add one when I split PSN from the releases template.

    Bumping and double posting, because fuck the police.

    Aliens: Colonial Marines and Aliens vs. Predator (2010) have both been removed from Steam. (Source)

    Colonial Marines is still up on PSN. There's DLC up for AVP on PSN, but I don't know if the full game was ever available for download or not. I think it was disc only.

    Both games are still up for download on XBLA.

    Since Isolation came out pretty recently, it's safe to assume this isn't a rights issue. I think it's probably SEGA doing what they tried to do with Sonic a few years back, by pulling the shit titles off shelves and increase the perceived value of the brand.

    Yeah I noticed that. Maybe it was a rights issue after all, and they just needed to renegotiate or something? It would be nice for someone from SEGA to let us know what went on.

    Also, I recently bought the Castle of Illusion remake, and it's fucking great. Since it's a downloadable licensed game, chances are it's not going to be around forever, so this is a general reminder that it exists and is worth playing if you're into that kind of thing.

    Wait a second.

    If SEGA has de-listed After Burner Climax because of their license expiring... then how comes they're about to release 3D After Burner in the following days/weeks? The legal info with their license is right there in the eShop.

    From what I understand (and the same applies to Outrun) SEGA used real life jets with all the special little details that they needed to get licenses for. I don't get how it works either.

    Trapped in my own thoughts.
    Two stageplays, a screenplay, and an album
    If Climax had separate licenses, nothing needs explaining.

    Side question - if a game is delisted and is nowhere to buy on any platforms, is it ok to pirate?

    Legally? No. Just because you can't find a product in a shop doesn't mean it's not still copyrighted.

    Morally? In my opinion, yes.
