OutRun Online Arcade To Be Removed From XBLA Next Year
Written Wednesday, October 13, 2010 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
OutRun Online Arcade is set to be removed from the Xbox Live Arcade and has already been taken down from the PlayStation Network, as SEGA no longer has the Ferrari licence. The game was originally launched in April 2009.
SEGA issued the following statement to Eurogamer yesterday: "Due to the expiry of the contract with Ferrari, OutRun Online Arcade will remain offline on PSN but will still be available on XBLA until Dec 2011."
Why developer Sumo Digital and SEGA are able to keep OutRun Online Arcade live on XBLA is unknown, but one thing's for sure. Come December 2011, spending 800 MS Points on the game might seem like a good idea since we might never get the chance again.
