Well according to Neogaf link: "According to support reps from the Xbox 360 forums, all of the game packs on the Game Room from Atari, Activision, Intellivision, and Konami have been pulled from the store and are gone for good.

With no notification or announcement, approximately 188 of these titles for arcade, Atari 2600, and Intellivision platforms are no longer available for purchase.

360 users are also reporting that they can not access and play the games they already paid for, that Game Room freezes up when pressing start. Users are not very happy with the issues that have been reported for months now as seen on the Xbox support forums:

http://forums.xbox.com/xbox_forums/x...7406=1#5249241

Some are reporting that disconnecting your 360 from the internet fixes the "freeze" issue, while Xbox support reps are claiming a fix is on the way.

Frustrating and kind of sad nonetheless. It appears the games on the services perhaps had a five-year licensing agreement on the service since they were launched in 2010, or Microsoft is shutting down the Game Room for good.

A list of games that were once available for the service can be found here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Game_Room_games"

And in one of the links for the P.T. Silent Hills demo, where even if you got the game demo via downloaded on your PSN account/in your PSN account history, not long after the game was removed, the licenses no longer works means you do not own the game anymore unless you have the demo downloaded on you PS4 Hard Drive.

And another link for the P.T. Silent Hills demo, has with the game licenses on your PSN account with a failed license check may affect anyones whole PSN library, as a major bug associated with Online Gaming/Digital Distribution.

Now, I explained to you better about what the links are about critic.
