Anyone know why Doom is new on XBLA?

It came out in 2006 (I think). Did they update it or something? Discount it big time?

Is it Doom 2, or some Doom 1 and 2 pack, or Final Doom or something? Cause yeah, that's been out for years.

There was a while where, due to a licensing rights kerfuffle, Doom was pulled from the Xbox Live marketplace. In the last week, that was all sorted out and it's been re-added.

Yup. It was pulled when Zenimax bought id Software. I'm guessing that the Activision logos have all been changed to Bethesda logos now.

GEE, IF ONLY THERE WERE SOME WEBSITE WHERE SUCH INFORMATION COULD BE FOUND!

Obviously I am referring to Ask Jeeves. He said that he was far too busy to answer the question because Wooster was about to be engaged to a young controlling women. I responded that it must be Tuesday.

Um...anyway, it was '93.

Doom came out on my birthday (years later).

Whenever I see the thumbnails on my games list, I get annoyed at how the Bethesda logo is slapped on the Doom 2 logo and just how ugly it looks.
