And I suggest you get it because it is one of the greatest games of all time.*
* in my opinion.
After Burner Climax is apparently gone now, seems Sega decided to de-list the game early.
Still on the UK SEN store. But I would suggest that people pick it up soon if they might ever want it.
Bah, crap. It was in my Xbox 360 to-buy list.
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
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?
I don't know what's wrong.
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.
Ah right! Thanks for that.
Let me know when you do, because I rooted around for the price in Euros as well. €9.99 Source - PlayStation / Pointless other source from VG24/7, but I wanted to be thorough
Probably should have looked for PSN store updates in the first place. Oh well =P
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.
Alien vs. Predator and Gearbox's snake oil are back on Steam.
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.
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.
Separate names with a comma.
