As I said, this post was just a heads up. For me, hero of sparta, first brothers in arms works completly fine, like some other older games i own from gameloft. I didnt say buy them now, im just a gamer like all you guys, and i did spend around 20$ today on some older games to fill my colection, and i dont regret, couse some of those games are alot better than those games we geting these days. And until im waiting next 4 games that i want to be relesed, i have time to save till then

Just checked the store catalog, a query of 'Gameloft' shows 155 titles, some from as far back as 2008. This guy almost had me starting to make purchases. Be careful what you read. And as for whoever began this conversation, follow the forum rules.

It's common for vendors to pull items from the store occasionally. Age may or may not have anything to do with the decision.
To be fair, plenty of Gameloft's games have been gradually disappearing from Gameloft's page for a while now. I first noticed it last year when I wanted to buy the Terminator Salvation game, only to find it had been removed. Ever since then, games like Prince of Persia: Warrior Within, Rayman 2 and Earthworm Jim (I believe), among others, have been removed. That's part of the reason why I decided to buy Splinter Cell: Conviction at full price, so as to avoid regretting not having done so in the case it ended up removed as well.

I think it's far more likely that KoRoV really was trying to give a heads-up to anyone who might benefit from this.

I'd rather they updated their older games, but pulling them is perfectly fine.
Exactly. BACKSTAB is a crashing mess on all devices, but inmagine it with the graphics and physics of Gangstar Vegas. Makes it way better.

It is not right to threaten anyone, whether you are a developer or purchaser.

Threateners often go to jail.

Rockstar games pulled out GTA CW and update it to bw compatible with the latest iOS. Maybe the same for Gameloft?
