Marble Blast Ultra Pulled from XBLA
Apparently the game has been pulled from the marketplace, but the DLC is still available.

Can anyone confirm that the servers are still up for this game?

Yeah, it's been taken down from the Marketplace because the company that released it is no longer in business.

Luckily, you can still buy a code for it from Gamestop. Who knows how long it remain available there, though.

Yes, make sure to get "Marble Blast Ultra" from GameStop ($4.99) as soon as possible since they will soon stopp selling codes for this Xbox Live Arcade game. I can confirm that the GameStop codes are still working. They can only be redeemed on US accounts.

I was heartbroken when I heard the news. The best game, in my opinion, to ever hit the XBLA for the first 3 years the console was out.

I at least feel relieved as to knowing the reason why there was never a Marble Blast Ultra 2.

I was playing online tonight so its still working at the moment.

Awwww. I was always hoping they'd make a sequel to this game. Simple, but fun.

DragzZ 05-21-2011 01:35 PM

It was a great game. I even made a "LP" of it on youtube. =[

chanman 06-29-2011 06:03 PM

This game is awesome! Definitely one of the best XBLA games. I still need to finish the bloody advanced levels lol! :Bounce:

this is sad news

Tyler De Large 07-31-2011 10:12 AM

This makes me so upset!!!

CONKER1182 08-19-2011 08:13 PM

Now the DLC is delisted from the marketplace to.

CONKER1182 08-19-2011 08:19 PM

Is their anyway to get the Marble it up! add on now that it's not on the marketplace? I don't think you can get this at GameStop.

I also want to know this, because I hate that I've missed out on DLC and I want to 100% this game.
Anyone have any info?

AmyGrrl 10-22-2011 01:58 AM

I think the only way to 100% this game is to find someone who has the game and all the dlc. Then send them your profile file and have them get all the DLC Achievements. I think sending your profile to someone is safer then sending your e-mail address and password to someone. Just remember not to log into live until you get your profile back. But then you have to make sure you trust the person who your doing this with. I bought the Game and DLC when it first came out. I'm glad I never waited. I finally just got all the achievements in this game today. I haven`t played this game since 2008. Only took me 3 year to 100% this game. LOL. I have 68 Complete games now.

CMpunk17 11-25-2011 06:52 AM

does the code from gamestop come with a disc? i dont understand how the memory for the game can exist with only a code since its off xbla.

Seblefeu 12-30-2011 07:42 PM

Does someone know how I get the DLC, if you know could you help me out


CMpunk17 01-12-2012 06:06 AM

i honestly could give a shit about online play. i just wish my xbox would recognize this as a full game. but since it doesnt exist on xbl marketplace, it just reads it as a trial game. fuckin stupid.

Bonxy 01-23-2012 04:07 PM

I am to looking for a way to get the DLC packs for this game as i need to complete the last achievements! :(

Mr Toxic 01-26-2012 02:12 PM

So where's my refund for a game that I can no longer download???

ChickinOnaChain 01-26-2012 02:23 PM

Well that sucks! MBU is a really fun game! Too bad it's gone.

BThumme 02-02-2012 03:58 AM

I shouldn't have waited :(

RIP to one of the best arcade games every made.

VALObranded 02-05-2012 08:04 AM

I actually just purchased & downloaded this successfully from gamestop a couple weeks back ( As far as the DLC goes, i dont think that will be available unless you previously downloaded it.

For those who have owned this in the past, i would suggest going to, from there you can re-download anything you have purchased. Hope this helps.

Restricted-Access 05-28-2012 08:02 PM

Also... if you already own the game (or any of the DLC), and you want to be able to play it offline (or let a guest play with her or his own account)... you'll need to transfer the license to the console it is to be played on.

I suppose if I ever want to get the DLC for this game that I don't yet have (I only got the free one when I saw it available 3 years ago)... I'm going to have to contact the two companies that seem to have joint ownership of the game license, and either have them make an agreement for sharing the profits (and re-release the game and DLC), or getting one of them to release their stake in it!

On a different note...
I'm still working on getting the Midway Games library back into the hands of a company that will publish it once again!! I'm sure there's scores of people who wish they got: Gauntlet, Joust, Robotron, Smash TV, Root Beer Tapper, Paperboy, Defender. I'm not sure if there were more... those are the only ones I'm aware of (and I only got the first three, that I listed).

UberPirateNinja 08-05-2012 01:27 PM

Kinda sad, the very first XBLA game I purchased. Only noticed it wasn't there as I went to download it onto my kids 360, and its not there :(

Can I just copy it from my machine to theirs via a USB stick? Or do I face a trawl thru my download history?

SpiralGamerpro 02-28-2013 06:23 AM

If I own the trial, can I still buy this? There's no possible way I'll ever have 100% on my account, so I don't care about the DLC.

Payshince 07-16-2013 05:47 PM

Another game like this -
Try checking out Switchball.
Think of it as a diverse sort of sequel to MBU...

Better than Nothing.


xxFlukeMasteRxx 11-07-2013 03:46 AM

Such an awesome game! :(

rambo474 07-24-2014 08:29 AM
