DeathSpank: The Baconing was most likely delisted in the first week of January 2018. posted a delisting roundup on January 9th featuring nine titles from publisher Valcon Games. As of August 2019 each title remains available to download on Steam, PlayStation 3, or both (as well as on physical media for various platforms). 

Valcon has been dormant since late 2011 when they released their last three titles, though it is uncertain if they have completely ceased operations. While the delistings here are Xbox exclusive, it may simply be that Valcon’s publisher license through Microsoft expired before their license with Sony. The titles that remain available on PlayStation 3 will likely be delisted at some point. On Steam, each title has a unique publisher.
