XBLA: Possible roster of games to be delisted

XBLA: Possible roster of games to be de-listed - Image 1Some of you guys may recall Microsoft‘s previous announcement regarding their plans to remove several titles from the XBLA service, based on three criteria. While no games have been named yet, we did run into a list of  some that just might be getting axed. You can view the list over in the full article.

XBLA: Possible roster of games to be de-listed - Image 1A few days ago, Microsoft broke the news that they are making some considerable changes to their Xbox Live service. Among other planned changes, two that got a lot of attention is the planned size limit increase for XBLA games, and the plan to de-list some of the title’s on the service’s roster.

The company further explained that they were planning to de-list titles based on three criteria: Their metacritic rating (anything below 65 %), their age on XBLA (at least six months old), and their conversion rate.

While MS hasn’t finalized anything just yet, we’ve run into one which listed the XBLA titles that fit criteria 1 and 2. The list is available for reading below, though we remind the readers that the games aren’t it aren’t confirmed to be axed – it’s just possible they might be.

As a reminder, you can still play the game normally in single-player or multiplayer mode even after it’s been de-listed. We advise the readers to check back again in case MS decides to release an official statement regarding the games getting the boot.
