Alan Wake to be removed from sale due to expiring music licenses
If you haven't yet played Remedy Entertainment's excellent Alan Wake then you may soon lose your chance as the game will be removed from sale soon due to expiring music licenses. The game itself makes use of various licensed tracks including In Dreams by Roy Orbison, The Darkest Star by Depeche Mode and Up Jumped The Devil by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Rather than neuter their product, as Rockstar did when faced with a issue with Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, it seems Remedy has decided to remove the title from stores. There is a silver lining to this however as Alan Wake will be 90% off from Saturday the 13th of May 10AM PST on Steam. No further outlet's have been announced at this time.
