Marvel vs. Capcom Origins Being Removed from PlayStation Network and Xbox Live
Fighting game Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is leaving the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live by the end of this month.
Capcom announced Thursday that Marvel vs. Capcom Origins will be delisted from PSN on Dec. 23 in North America and Europe and on Dec. 31 across Xbox Live worldwide. Once the game is removed from those digital storefronts it can no longer be purchased for the PlayStation and Xbox 360.
Games are usually removed from the online networks due to expiring licensing agreements. Origins currently costs $14.99 to download on both platforms.
Developed by Capcom and Iron Galaxy Studios, Marvel vs. Capcom Origins released September 2012 for the PS3 and Xbox 360. It includes two arcade game versions from the ’90s, Marvel Super Heroes (1995) and Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes (1998).
Origins added online play, upgraded graphics, visual filtering options, saved replays of matches, new in-game challenges and unlockables to the two fighters.
Owners of the game will still be able to download and play Marvel vs. Capcom Origins in the future.

As someone who owns MVC: Origins, I’m curious if this announcement means the game compilation will be deleted from my PS3.
