Default GOG - possibly no more

from blues-

GOG.com has a message that suggests the service is in some sort of transitional state, saying: "unfortunately, we've decided that GOG.com simply cannot remain in its current form." They also say: "This doesn't mean the idea behind GOG.com is gone forever. We're closing down the service and putting this era behind us as new challenges await. On a technical note, this week we'll put in place a solution to allow everyone to re-download their games. Stay tuned to this page and follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates." We contacted them about this, and were told simply: "As the message on the site says, this doesn't mean GOG is gone . We'll have more to share in the coming days." GOG.com, dedicated to "good old games, first launched by CD Projekt in October 2008, with the plan of offering DRM-free older classics updated for modern systems for online sale at bargain prices.

Rumor has it it is a poor publicity stunt with an introduction of the new Adobe Air download client.

1People, relax. It's just a marketing stunt. Worse one ever. I don't know who at CDP thought this was a good idea to drop the beta and go final in such manner, but he's a moron.

And yes, it is a stunt, CEO warned financial forums couple days ago to ignore what will appear on Gog site soon. .t. It's a mess overall...23rd there was supposed to be full blown conference (like the one in Spring, when they've shown Witcher 2 for the first time), but it was just annouced it won't happen and there will be online conference instead.

Anyway, bassicaly GoG is simply ending it's beta phase and going final, that's all. Some speculate it will get a standalone client too

GoG will be back tomorrow. Now no longer in beta and still DRM Free . It was just a PR stunt. But they are getting Baldur's Gate tomorrow.
