The video just about sums it up. After a long build-up, Sensible World of Soccer rushed onto the Xbox Live Marketplace field this morning and promptly fell on its face. (Thanks to West Ham's Robert Green for the visual aid.) The beloved soccer game apparently suffered from a bug that would sign players out of Live as soon as it started up, and wouldn't sign them back in until they returned to the dashboard. After the forums erupted on Codemasters' official site, the game was pulled from Marketplace.
There's currently no announced timetable for its return, but we'll update this post as soon as we hear something new. In the meantime, Major Nelson has the lowdown on all the "anonymous" information your game will collect on you to present you with the very finest in in-game advertising. ... Once it's working, of course.
