This should be illegal, companies should be forced to open-source games (or at least provide the code to people who bought it) if they decide to discontinue it, so people can preserve it on their own.

    I bought a bunch of music on Google Play Music, forgot about it. Come back a year later and it’s all deleted because they shut the service down.

        I did find that some of my uploaded library got changed to different versions of songs, which I didn’t like.

          Spotify did that too. Got to listen to THE definitive worst cover of Hotel California I’ve ever heard. I don’t trust cloud services with my music anymore. Mp3’s forever.

            This is why hard copy is refusing to die.

        You had a limited time window to manually do that. I didn’t get the memo.

        Sadly there was a pretty short grace period to do so. It should have indeed been automatic.

          Yep, I was sent one email to an old email address I do not use.
