    Do games leave the Store forever?

    I've been wanting to get Costume Quest for a lot of time and I finally got some money, went to buy it but I can't find it in the Store. I've check both in the PS3 itself and the Store website (European Store).

    Is this a mistake or can't I ever play this game?

    Ninja turtles game would like to talk to you

    Yes some games do get removed and demos as well
    but would probably take a long time for it to happen
    but what you seek is in the US store at least

    Games do get removed periodically. However, if you've purchased a game in the past, it's available to download in the future, regardless of whether or not it's currently for sale on the PS Store.

    Solution - buy a US PSN card. Purchase on US PSN account. Profit.

    Fun game by the way.

    I checked for you and it doesn't seem to be there anymore. I guess you could make an inquiry to the company that made the game. O sorry they went bankrupt. If it's not there the only other way is to find someone else with the game that's willing to share there account with you and download it from their download list.

    Several games have left our store:
    Wrecked: Revenge Revisited
    Ice Age 4
    Jimmie Johnson's Anything with an Engine
    Q*Bert

    and those are the ones I can think of off the top of my head.

    When'd they go bankrupt? I was still holding out hope for possible future DLC. Fudge...

    Thanks to Thunder for the platbar!!!

    Sorry Double Fine is still around but not THQ. So there could more likely be a sequel then more DLC.

    I just tried downloading the demo again and selecting 'Unlock Full Game' from there, it links to the Store but says there's nothing to buy

    You do realize that they have already released DLC for this game right?
