PlayStation Blog announcement
3 on 3 NHL Arcade was delisted on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in most territories between December 17th, 2015 and January 16th, 2016. It remained available to download on PlayStation 3 exclusively from the PlayStation Store in Singapore but was later removed.
A playable demo of the game was included in the PlayStation 3 releases of NHL 11 and NHL 12. A download code for the full game was also included in some releases of NHL 13 on PlayStation 3.
3 on 3 NHL Arcade was likely delisted due to expired licensing through the NHL. The game’s online features were later retired on March 10th, 2020.
