Back in October of 2010, DOOM, which was originally published by Activision, was taken off of Xbox Live Arcade due to the content rights expiring. The game was apparently supposed to relaunch soon afterwards with Bethesda as the publisher since ZeniMax Media is also the parent company of id Software. Obviously the process took just a little longer than that.
But for those who were never able to grab the game when it was originally available on XBLA, you can finally do so, since as of today it is now available once again for 400 points.
