Here are some simple examples of WTFery. What to do with the Telltale Games product catalog remains a problem for digital markets. On Xbox 360, Minecraft: Story mode has his individual episodes listed for $ 99.99 each. That's right, a hundy.
This is actually a good reason, but first, yes, this price is meant to dissuade people from buying it. And yes, your credit card will be charged $ 99.99 if you try to do it, just to see what happens.
Per Mojang (or whoever manages the Facebook account of this game now) was trapped because removing episodes from the sale prevented players who had already purchased the game from downloading (or downloading) their remaining episodes. "The only solution to this situation is to list downloadable content for purchase," they write.
Ergo, "To deter further purchases, they will be re-registered at a very high price!" No kidding. "The indicated price is a real catalog price.Do not buy the content.The amount indicated will be charged."
We arrived on the Xbox 360 digital showcase this afternoon and, yes, Mojang is not kidding. Their prices are really crazy! There were 13 episodes in all (eight in season 1, five in season 2), so it is possible to spend more than 20 times what these things were originally.
This is not a permanent agreement (or lack thereof). Back on May 31, Mojang announced that Minecraft: Fashion History would no longer be supported from June 25 and sales were stopped. Players must then have all their episodes on their device before this stop occurs.
Thus, after June 25, episodes at $ 99.99 will be permanently removed from the Xbox 360 market and will not be accessible to anyone, whether he has already bought the game or not.
Jonathan Stauder, former director of Telltale, pointed out how bizarre that was in a tweet on Friday. Indeed, that's it. This seems to be the only game affected; Tales of Borderlands has all his episodes removed, while Batman: The Telltale series still has episodes listed (for the much more reasonable price of $ 4.99).
This process of erasing the MCSM from existence just becomes … more stupid? This may not be the right word, but it is surreal to see our games listed at $ 100 per episode as FIX. pic.twitter.com/Sh79REuRBe

Telltale Games closed in September 2018; At the end of May, GOG.com announced that the studio's catalog would be removed, taking licensed collaborations such as The wolf among us, Guardians of the Galaxy and Batman: the inner enemy offline – however, those who bought these games will still have them in their library.
