Good Old Games - Update, Announcement Wednesday

by Dhruin, 2010-09-20 20:57:48

There's a new statement up at GOG offering an apology and saying they "had to close the service due to business and technical reasons".  A full announcement will come on Wednesday.  It certainly doesn't sound like a PR stunt to me but time will tell:

UPDATE 20.09.2010
First of all, we apologize everyone for the whole situation and closing We do understand the timing for taking down the site caused confusion and many users didn't manage to download all their games. Unfortunately we had to close the service due to business and technical reasons.

At the same time we guarantee that every user who bought any game on will be able to download all their games with bonus materials, DRM-free and as many times as they need starting this Thursday.

The official statement from's management concerning the ongoing events is planned on Wednesday. If you want to receive further information about, please send an email to if you're a media representative or to if you're a user without a GOG account.

Ironically, Gamasutra posts that NPD says digital sales overtook retail for the first half of 2010.
