I have this game at home sitting on my shelf, and have had it for ages just can't get around to playing this, hope the buggs are now ironed out.

Joystiq's reporting that it's back online today.

They're UP!

I will wait until later in the year to buy it.  As Failed said, I'm sure they'll have a "firesale" before they take it off the Marketplace for good.

The DLC will be taken down on December 31st.  I'm still waiting for the possible "firesale".  If it doesn't go on sale this month, I'll buy it on December 30th full price (800 MSP).

It'll be like having some collectable mint in box action figure, you'll never play with it, but you can say you have one.

I still have MUA2.  I plan to play it with the DLC, but have waited for the DLC to drop in price.

I have a reminder that pops up every day reminding me.  I'm going to wait until the last minute hoping for a surprise sale, and then cry when I they take it down a day early.   ;D

This morning I decided I was tired of seeing my daily pop-up reminder and bought the MUA2 DLC.  I bought the MUA1 DLC a long time ago.

 :'(  I know.



Seems like such a waste of opportunity to cash on all the panicked gamers.  They're going to let it just slip by without any fanfare.  Maybe a part of their agreement allowing them to put it back online was to not publicize it?

Come to think of it, the announcement that it was back up for sale didn't even come from Activision or Marvel directly.  It came from Kotaku and the Activision/Marvel forums.
