The message reads:The message claims that sometime this week a solution will be "put in place" to allow gamers to re-download any content they have purchased. Shacknews has contacted representatives at Good Old Games to learn whether the message is legitimate and, if so (and we hope it isn't), why the company decided to discontinue its service so abruptly.[Thanks to all who sent this in.]
We have recently had to give serious thought to whether we could really keep GOG.com the way it is. We've debated on it for quite some time and, unfortunately, we've decided that GOG.com simply cannot remain in its current form. We're very grateful for all support we've received from all of you in the past two years. Working on GOG.com was a great adventure for all of us and an unforgettable journey to the past, through the long and wonderful history of PC gaming. This doesn't mean the idea behind GOG.com is gone forever. We're closing down the service and putting this era behind us as new challenges await.
Well first off I have a few undownloaded games so this bothers me, second why was this so abrupt? Not even a warning to let us download what we own?
This is very disappointing. I thought the site was doing quite well.
If they were strapped for cash they could have given a weeks notice, and seen HUGE sales during that time.
Its too sudden for that, probably outside pressure.
