This is apparently due to expired contracts. Marvel titles from both Capcom and Activation have been taken down from PSN and XBL .
The Community Manager for Activision, Dan Amrich, posted the following Tweets:
“For those asking about it: Marvel Activision titles are no longer available for digital download. http://ow.ly/sbS0q Hence the sale!”
“Yes. Capcom also pulled the MvC games, so it’s not just Activision. Time for Marvel to consolidate, I guess!”
“Contracts have dates. Whatchagonnado.”
So if you had planned on purchasing any of these games digitally, then it’s not looking too good at the moment. Especially with major titles like Marvel VS Capcom being removed, this seems like a pretty big deal. Hopefully they will get everything worked out again with Marvel, and renew their contracts so no one has to miss out on some of these great titles!by
