Midway titles disappear from XBLA

Are they being moved to the Game Room?

Midway Games' Xbox Live Arcade portfolio has, as if by magic, mysteriously disappeared.

Gone are Mortal Kombat 3, Defender, Gauntlet, Paperboy and Smash TV.

Are they being held back for the release of Game Room - the virtual Xbox Live arcade space - this March? Or have they fallen foul of legal muddy waters, as they belong to a company that no longer exists?

We'll attempt to find out.

The French and UK operations of Midway were bought by Martin Speiss last August and are now known as Tradewest Games.
