Just to add, MvC2 and U/MvC3 are being removed from XBL (also PSN), so this sale will be your last chance to buy them and the U/MvC3 DLC.

 

Marvel are retracting their license from Capcom again.

I'm going to just make a guess here but I'm sure they want more money but now that Disney owns marvel and they have their own game studio(s) I wonder if they want to just make their own game without capcom if the price isn't right.

Nah, it happened before in 2003.

 

It has something to do with Marvel licensing X-Men to Fox and Spiderman to Sony, possibly. They want the licenses back but because Fox/Sony can keep them if they keep making a new movie within every 2 years, it's impossible. They must have put hard timed agreements in the MvC game rights so it couldn't happen a 3rd time. Capcom and Marvel have historically a very good working relationship.

Just in time for me to load up on games for my brand new Xbox... One... darn it! Otherwise I'd probably be buying some of the games :(

It also happened with Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2. The DLC just suddenly dissapeared. Fan outcry forced them to offer it again (because they also had removed the compatibility pack, breaking the online MP) for a limited period, after that it was gone for good.

I think it might be a bit early for specials on the XB1, but in saying that I'd love for Powerstar Golf to get a christmas deal. AU$25 seems like a bit much for a game that probably would've been classified as XBLA on the 360.
