Doom Is Back Up On Xbox Live

Doom Is Back Up On Xbox Live

Doom, one of the progenitors of the first-person shooter genre, has returned to the Xbox Live Marketplace after a mysterious three-month hiatus. The classic PC title is available for 400 Microsoft Points ($5).

The game was removed in October with no explanation from Bethesda Softworks, the current rights-holder to the game (as the parent compabny of id Software, Doom‘s maker.) Licensing and publication rights seeped into the intrigue behind the game’s three-month absence. Whatever the case, it’s back again.

    • I think it’s a great version of Doom, plays really well. Never got multiplayer to work properly though. Too much lag.

  • It appears to be counted as a seperate title from the original, in that I brought it the first time it was on XBLA but deleted it to save some space on my old console. I’ve upgraded to a slim since then, and I tried to download the new version so I could play DOOM again, but it’s asking me to pay for it.
