I deleted my doom to test this out and its gone. Do not delete your BC versions of Doom! This likely applies to 2 and 3 as well
Could be the case.
Even if that's the case folk will loose the online features that the new ports apparently lack (at least on Switch).Could be the case.
I'd hope if they are pulling the 360 XBLA version, they at least intend to honour those purchases for the new version. Still would be kinda shitty to pull the old BC versions though.
Edit: No longer available to purchase from marketplace.xbox.com, either.
Is it still available for download? I had digital versions of Doom 1 and 2 on PS3.I said this in the other thread but I feel it is relevant:
They removed the PS3 version of the Doom Collection (yes the PS3 version which shouldn't affect the PS4 version technically) because they knew it was a much better value because you literally get EVERYTHING classic Doom. That includes the Master Levels, Final Doom, a special episode made from DOOM 2 Xbox version called No Rest for The Living and of course Ultimate Doom and Doom 2. Also had online CO OP and deathmatch alongside split screen.
Fuck you Bethesda. Not buying the classic games. Only Doom 3 if the port is good.
Hopefully Sony allows every PS3 game to be playable on PS5 because what we are getting now is a huge downgrade.
I am going to have to check but Sony has never deleted anything from the download list. For example I had Mortal Kombat II years ago before they removed it and it is still there last time I checked.
There was PT. Not sure about any other examples though.
The console has a separate section for your owned software called Ready to Install. Usually when things are yanked off the store they’ll still be in your owned software and can be downloaded. This would be wild if they’d deleted the license from people’s accounts essentially.
Still has a store listing, but it's just for the Demo (only available on an actually 360, not on Xbox One), and Avatar items.
Up until recently, it was still available to purchase.
Not sure how it looks on an actual Xbox One though.
I'm going to copy the games to my delisted/unpatched drive for backup and give it a whirl tonight. You have to figure at least DOOM 3 will work.
Nope. Still there thankfully. Hopefully if PS5 has PS3 BC that it works.
I forgot about PT. Thankfully it was free.
Right! If DOOM 3 is gone too I will likely never buy a Bethesda game again. Well, at least digitally.
P.T. for one, and on the PS3 they deleted a couple of PS1 games (Kyuujin and Magical Drop iirc) that I owned. I asked for a refund for them and got it with little trouble. I think there were a couple others, like possibly an Afro Samurai game that got deleted from download lists.
Damn. So it is possible for them to remove it.P.T. for one, and on the PS3 they deleted a couple of PS1 games (Kyuujin and Magical Drop iirc) that I owned.

PT is actually still on the Download list it just errors if you try to download it. This sounds like they just asked MS to remove them from the BC list. Can anyone log onto their 360 and see if they are still available to download there.
I didn't see confirmation on whether it applies to on an Xbox 360 or not yet, but I'd be interested to hear. Given that it's no longer listed on the marketplace to buy, I suspect it applies to both Xbox One and Xbox 360, but not totally sure yet.Interesting case...just to be clear, we're talking about back compat doom from the 360. IE if you have a 360 you should be able to download it, but the BC version was yanked?
Still, I wonder if there's not an issue here since you definitely COULD buy the game specifically because it was added to BC.
At least it will still be available on the 360 via the physical DOOM 3 BFG edition set. That included the 360 versions of DOOM 1 and 2 and is not dependent on servers to play.
Good to hear.
In the US and it's in the store.
Note that the games can only be played off the disc on 360. XB1 has to download the games (like all 360 releases - something future Xbox consoles will likely do as well) and just uses the disc as a key to run them. We don't yet know if the disc still prompts the user to download the game in this case.
