[Original Story]

A huge amount of games and content have disappeared from the Xbox Live Marketplace, it has emerged.

Perennial XBLA favourites Castle Crashers and Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition are missing, amoung many more. Indeed, the Marketplace is currently showing listings for just 135 XBLA games. Some reports claim that up to three quarters of the games are missing.

Games on Demand, Add-Ons and the Xbox Live Indie Games section is hit too. The total number of XBLIG games has dropped from around 2100 to just 949 without warning. Lost Planet 3, Divinity 2 and The Witcher 2 and loads more have also done a runner.

Microsoft is seemingly aware of the issue. Responding to a complaint from a user unable to download some Borderlands 2 DLC, Xbox Support tweeted the reply, “We're investigating some marketplace issues, thanks for your patience!”

Weird, huh? We’ll keep you posted.

[Update]

A Microsoft spokesperson has told Gamasutra, “We’re aware there is an issue affecting the Xbox Games Store that has temporarily removed some content including Xbox Live Arcade and Xbox Live Indie Games titles. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
