Was this brought up yet?

Space Marine, de Blob 2 and Red Faction Guerrilla can no longer be found on the EU webstore.
I expect the same to happen on US PSN as well, so if you have any interest in at least RFG or de Blob 2 better grab them US PSN asap as I expect the same to happen there.

Space Marine is now published by SEGA as it was part of a discounted bundle on Gamersgate, so hopefully it'll show up on PSN again in the near future.

Can someone tell me, have the publishing rights for existing titles been acquired with whoever bought THQ's entrails or is there a real risk of titles disappearing into the non-buyable void?

Space Marine is now a Sega title while the other games fall under the umbrella of THQ's legacy IPs and will be auctioned off soon.

Edit: Final bids are due April 15th.

Where does this leave games that have been downloaded/bought, then deleted? Can they be redownloaded?

You can prolly just download them from your download list. This has been the case for every game I have owned and has been removed.

Does that mean the files are still on Sony servers, just not on the storefront?

Some of the titles have already updated on Steam, and show as being published by SEGA.

It may be the same with this, except they are pulling them before updating them. Anyone check their download list to see if the games they bought are still downloadable?

Have they gone from the list?

Yeah.

I had to do this when Silent Hill was removed from EU store for example. They keep that shit in there or they would have a LOT of angry customers.

Keep in mind though that some IP's of previously THQ-published games are owned by the developer and not by THQ. Metro is an example. Pretty sure the development studio itself own it.

Sure. I was just addressing the game's mentioned in the OP, which are owned by THQ.

Edit: I can see how that's unclear. I thought I'd quoted the OP. :p As far as Metro is concerned, the games are based upon the novels of the same name.

THQ titles are in danger of disappearing worldwide. They're bankrupt...

Bankruptcy + Liquidation = titles go out of print, both physically and digitally.

I'm actually in US, but I need to get onto PSN and pick it up before THQ does the same here. Thanks for the generosity, however.

This is why I'm not excited about an all digital future. Games going out a print is one thing, you can just track down a copy at a used game store or ebay. Digital game gets yanked, you're shit out of luck unless you pirate it. Not advocating piracy in anyway, just happy we're getting disc based media for at least another generation.

Double Fine owns Costume Quest. It may be temporarily pulled once THQ's current publishing contract expires (if it hasn't already -- I don't use PSN/XBLA these days), but Double Fine itself could just put it back up.

but well.. there is always the boxed copies and they are dirt cheap. (old ways are best)

Oh well, they were on my "to buy" list anyways, and the PS+ discount was quite sweet, unfortunately the DLC was more costly than the actual game.

On PSN a game you bought would always be in your download list, so if you remove it from your HDD, you should still be able to get it via the download list.

Oh, sure, I know that... but I thought that the game would be deleted from the system...
