Telika: Possibly copyright issues with the XIII franchise. Too bad, because the game is way better than the comics.

What would happen to gift keys, if we bought a couple now ?
avatar
ShogunDarius: someone said that keys bought before de listing but used after de listing wont work, you'd have to get a refund or a game of similar value
And that was later retracted, with the keys being usable again. Not sure if that was because the specific games would return with a different publisher or if this is the normal behaviour, but as I recall, gift codes should work normally.

ErekoseDM: hopefully this is the only removal for a while.

is there going to finally be a XIII - part 2?
Maybe it's a new sales tactic. Scare people into buying it and then bring it back later, which gives even more publicity :)
Ouch didnt see this one coming but thanks for the heads up guys.

that is certainly a possibility but theyd only be able to be successful at it a few times.


i was just hoping that there was finally going to be another game out of the series in the same style.
or if anyone heard any news of such? (maybe/hopefully ^_^)
or maybe there was and i missed out on it over the years.

Roman5: You have GOT to be fucking shitting me

What will happen with the game then? will it go to a different publisher? What's going on with it? Has Ubisoft lost the license to it or something?
Blame that horrible,horrible,horrible, hidden object game made by Hdo, They are the WORST hidden objects game developer EVER! and they are published by Anuman Interactive who publish nothing but shit these days.
I wasn't even eyeballing it, and I am out of money, but 2.99 USD? I think tinyE might be able to push that just this one time.

Oh Christ; I'm refering to myself in the 3rd person again, and not even by my given name!

ps, Roman, if its okay with you I'd like to snag that .gif you posted and add it to my repetoir should the situtation ever present itself for that particular expression to be used. Thanks

Robette: On a sidenote: I joined only a few weeks ago and I already find it very... troublesome how official statements lack visibility on this forum... stuff like this should be stickyed or probably have a separate section like 'official statements' or the likes...
I agree with this, and an official warning announcing it like a month ago should have been much better... not 3 days before!
Yesterday Friday I paid all my debts from my credit card, and now I don't have any money left... -literally- :(

MDyzzle: XIII will be removed from our catalog at the end of 2012.

It will NOT be removed from your accounts, but you will not be able to buy it anymore.
Just got it, thanks for the heads up.

For future reference as I almost got a small heart attacks, you may want to add a "will be" in the topic name.
Ubisoft doesn't care about old licenses. They lost Chessmaster, they didn't care, they loose XIII, they don't care either.
And this is why one should always try and get older games that use a licence as soon as you can as they can be pulled at any moment with little warning.

yes because I'm sure Ubisoft had told them a month ago that the game is to be pulled and they just happily sat on this info till now. Hell I wouldn't be surprised that Ubisoft didn't know the game needed to be pulled till a while ago.

Exactly this. Vendors like GOG are usually the last ones to know that something is getting pulled.

At least GOG warns about that unlike other stores. (Mafia disappeared from every store just like that. No warning, no nothing)

I guess, this got me by surprise and sometimes I speak too much without thinking... but this definitively needs MORE BLUE.

I'd like to propose a conveniently timed XIII giveaway on December 31, 2012. :p
guess what game I bought? I played it on PC and found it to be ok.

I may buy some keys for giveaways later
