    they trying hard to make it like like an error/**** up but it was sly attempt to get as many peeps as they can to sign up to bethesda.net for when they begin to release games only on their own store front.

    The mistake was thinking nobody would notice, a mistake they keep making it seems.

    I admit to being curious how they managed to remove the ability to redownload the previously-purchased Doom games from the store's servers. That seems to require cooperation on Microsoft's part, since delisting isn't supposed to remove access for prior purchases.

    I'm assuming they SOMEHOW managed to overwrite the 360 version with the X1 version, but ... that shouldn't have been possible.

    I assume something along the lines of "Hey Microsoft, please delist apps X and Y from the store. Yes, we're sure".

    Delisting removes them from sale. It isn't supposed to prevent previous purchasers from pulling it down again.
