GAMELOFT pulls some good older games!!!

Just a heads up, Gameloft pulls some of their older good games from appstore. Hero of sparta 1&2, dungeon hunter 1 are already gone for ever, so if you wona buy some good old games for your colection, now is your chance. More games are gone, i think no retina ones, who knows whats going on next.
I know this is wrong threat, but everybody reads this threat so just so you all know.

Who's threating who?
I don't think this is gameloft's threat, why would they even threat their customers?

Some games don't even play on iOS 7 or new iphones/ipads I think that's why they're being pulled out of the appstore as most sales are actually later refunded

Quite possibly the funniest thread/t I've stumbled upon. Godbless the Internets.

So there is a right threat and a wrong threat?

It's about time they got rid of their non-functional games, instead of allowing people to waste money on broken crap. Of course... it'd be a lot nicer if these games were just patched up a little so they'd work properly again.

RE: GAMELOFT pulls some good older games!!!

Oh, really?

Call me skeptical, but how do we not know that this original post isn't actually some type of publicity stunt meant to spur sales? 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.

If you already own them, you can re-download them. If you don't own them, you weren't going to buy them.

I'd rather they updated their older games, but pulling them is perfectly fine.
