A lot of devs have said the same and their game never came back. 1000 Top Rated for example.

That’s the one I was thinking of. (Not sure what soundscapes dlc has to do with anything)

I hope it will be back. I can’t believe my 100% completion is gone for this stupid game.

Back in my day, we could only triple-plat Demon's Souls, and that's the way we liked it. It wasn't much, but it was honest gamin'.

How old are you guys?

 

I was alive and well back in 2006 - 2007. I'm not some college kid who just stumbled upon a video game for the first time.

Playing video games? For fun? I don't know if I believe it.

Wow this is not a good position in general not only with Sony or games...

Why? If Sony ban something not banned by the actual law of the country it was accessed in (and I’m talking censorship here, not because it’s full of bugs that could crash their system somehow, for example) then fuck them.

 

edit: just looked up the game and doesn’t seem like any reason to ban it. It was apparently a free game (in order to advertise a music album it seems) so maybe it just wasn’t worth renewal or something.

A title like that on a game like this in the Whiteboyz with Attitude forum? You're fishing for controversy there mate.

What's sad is there are people who think of this as a foreign concept.

Too bad they released dlc with trophies before the game was taken off. I hope we'll get another chance to buy the stuff again

Basically did, but through a re-release under a new name.

That's the point of clickbait lol- it's not about integrity, it's about those precious views. Most gaming journalism centers around it nowadays, sadly.

So many people crying in Reddit about not getting the DLC in time and that this will put an end to their 100% accounts if the game doesn’t get relisted on the store.

 

it’s your own fault for playing trash like this just for trophies in the first place!

It was a $2, 4 minute long dlc. Like Sony really cares you couldn't find your couch change in time.

Not be cause you can't rant or be upset with that (is normal if you don't agree with whatever happened) but more be cause you don't know reasons at all of why Sony did it or even as I said could be a bug and they only have to fix it.

 

I mean I don't see very good sending people/companies to FU#$% them self before you know what is really going on that's all.

That’s why I said “whenever” it happens, in the comment to which you were replying, and stated I don’t know about this game specifically. It’s a position of principle, that’s all.

Can someone explain to me what happened?

Did they take it down cause the name is too similar to N.W.A.? And they sent a cease and desist order, forcing the publisher and PSN to take it down?

 

That's like the most logical thing I can think of.

I wonder if the fact that it was removed as soon as they released paid DLC is significant. I believe it's easier to claim fair use if you're not profiting. That $1.50 or whatever for the DLC may have been just enough to change the standing of the game from a legal standpoint.

 

Either way, very unlikely this game will make a return, IMO. Someone brought up 1000 Top Rated as an example of a game that was supposed to return "shortly."

Not possible. Parody is covered, Sony is very familiar with that thanks to The Interview.
