    @2 The game will still be available to download if you already bought it. They’re legally obliged to do so. You simply won’t be able to buy it digitally anymore.

    Marvel is to blame for this, not Capcom. They do this crap all the time when licences expire.

    The Skull Girls thing was Konami making public something that really didn’t need to be. They can’t provide the game if they don’t hold the license for the game anymore. That would essentially be theft. It’s up to whoever does to ensure that the game stays up on the service.

    @1: Probably never. Marvel and DC used to do crossover things in the 90s, but since then they’ve taken more of a rivalry approach. That may be a necessity too, not sure how things are in legal if the two biggest companies in the industry are too buddy-buddy.

    @2: Yeah, this sort of stuff is why I prefer physical for anything that’s important to me, and even most stuff that isn’t. When you buy digital, you’re at the mercy of what companies will do to the game in the future and any DRM they’ve instituted. When you buy physical, you know you can play it even if the publisher wants to wipe it off the map.

    Well I don’t see anything about marvel vs capcom origins being pulled so maybe it’s not to do with the license expiring, or vanilla marvel vs capcom 3.

    Same shit happened with Fate/Unlimited Codes for PSP. Pulled without warning from PSN because Capcom’s contract with Type Moon expired or something.

    Probably to try and get you to buy a newer fighting game. This genre is the ghetto of gaming.
