    So, is DiRT 3 from November PS Plus Games Announced effected by this? Should I take this off my backlog? Is this no longer available at all? Because that's a fairly recent plus title.

    All that the delisting does is to stop potential future buyers from buying it. Those who have already bought the title, or "purchased" it from the PS+ free games, will still have the game in their Download List. I grabbed DiRT 3 in November's PS+ list but didn't download it. I've just checked the online store and I can still send it to my PS3 for download.

    I know that it can happen on the Xbox 360 but I'm honestly not aware of any titles on the PS3, Vita or PS4 that you haven't been able to download from your Download History after they've been removed from the Playstation Store.

    Oh right, I always thought once it was delisted it was over, GG. It's the reason I haven't uninstalled any delisted games in case I can't redownload them.

    Glad to know I have a safety net with the downloads history.

    The only game I care about is the TMNT one, and luckily I bought it ages ago. Let me wipe that sweat off my brow.

    I was thinking full games, be it retail or downloadable, but had admittedly forgotten about the PT demo. Having said that, the permanent removal of demos isn't terribly uncommon.

    I've got to say I'm pretty surprised by some of the games on this list.
    Hope for the best but expect the worst.

    It's because of things like this that has soured me on the current and future generations of gaming....online play, hard drives and downloadable content was supposed to be a godsend...its turned into a curse
