some PC stuff going on?... anyway, hopefully they can get back. I started the game and really aimed to finish it off some day.

This usually happens whenever there's a potential lawsuit, copyrights issue or something else involving publishing deal going on around. Hope everything works out in the end, I did enjoy Sinking City quite a bit. Way more than I thought that I would.

Its really strange if that's the case with this game, because similar issue happened with other FrogWares games, Sherlock Holmes games. But that issue was when Focus Home Interactive was the publisher, but Sinking City was published by BigBen. It's very odd. Hopefully it will be back soon. I did play it on PC, but would definitely want to plat it on PS4.

The weirdest thing is that it got announced as joining PS Now a day after this tweet. 1f615.png

Yeah, and the thing is, it was at least delisted since June which is really weird on PlayStation's part.

Plat is actually quite simple on this one, can be done within one playthrough if you save before certain decisions to load up and do the other one.

I don't know when it got delisted but I bought it on July 10-th from the July savings sale. Then suddenly a few days ago it stopped showing the trophies on the activities page.

I was referring to this tweet. It probably got delisted on PS4 in July then, it looks like.

Nice. I wouldn't mind the spoilers as well as I have already beat it before. Thanks for the info.

I feel upset whenever games I haven't played get delisted. :(

 

I hope they sort it out.

Y'know I was actually on the verge of buying this a while ago but didn't go through with it and have now obviously missed out for the time being. After reading all of that statement though I'll be quite happy to buy this when it re-releases on PSN. No one should have to go through with that but it's nice to know they are doing everything they can to win against corporate greed.

I feel sorry for Frogwares as they went through all of this with Focus Home over their Sherlock games as well - thankfully they all got relisted under their own name (including a second platinum on here).

There's no reason to run out and buy a physical copy of this game, right?

There are physical copies floating around, so you should be able to buy that instead.

one of the many reasons why digital is the future is scaring me and it's sucks, especially this cloud gaming BS.

I think i remember hearing something about this. The publisher for this game doesn't own the IP but they are acting like they do, pulling the game from retail because the devs of TSC wouldn't cave to their demands. and the demands were give us your ip so we can put people we feel are better suited to carry it further.

I really wanted this game in digital, guess I'll have to get a disc instead. 
I don't see it returning to the PS Store anytime soon
