I notice Myst is on the auction list as well!

Makes me wonder... If Ubisoft owned the publishing rights for the entire Myst franchise through (was it 2008?)... and this is a bankruptcy proceding, does that mean that Ubisoft declaring bankruptcy? confused1.gif

What??? I'd like to know what is going on here! How can the rights to Myst be up for sale?

Anyone checked on the legitimacy of this auction???

My first inclination is that these are rights to publish video game versions only . . .
for certain gamebox platforms.


Weren't these entirely separate deals . . .
from the rights to publish . . .
the PC games for a certain contracted time?

These are only Acclaim games. I am assuming the Myst and Riven ones would be for the ports to Playstation and other consoles. I think all this auction does is give you the right to publish any of those titles as a console game. I dont believe it will give you the full rights to the games themselves. And yes Tink, I think they are seperate deals from their PC counterparts.

I actually have alot of those games as Nintendo and Playstation titles.
