Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition Remix was likely delisted on the PlayStation 3 between April 2014 and July 2015. The game was last featured in a Rockstar Games sale on the PlayStation Store in February (NA) and March of 2014 (AU, EU). A commenter on a PlayStation Blog post in July of 2015 confirmed that the titles were no longer available to buy, at least in North America. Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition and Midnight Club LA Remix were also featured in these sales and likely delisted around the same time.
In all cases, licensing is presumably the cause for the delistings. The games heavily feature licensed music from electronic, hip hop, and rap artists as well as licensed vehicles and aftermarket parts from real-world manufacturers. In the case of the DUB Edition titles, the DUB brand would also have been a separate license.
About the Game
Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition Remix is a revised edition of Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition. It is available as a Greatest Hits release on PlayStation 2 and a Platinum Hits release on Xbox (the remix edition of the game is not available for the PlayStation Portable). The game was released on March 12, 2006 or exactly eleven months after the original version’s release. It was released on December 19, 2012 on PlayStation Network for the PS3; However, it was removed after a passing of time due to licensing issues.
The game features all of the cities, vehicles, music, and other features from Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition. This version of the game also allows the player to import the Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition data on their memory card to Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition Remix to make up for lost progress, thus saving the player from starting all over again.
The following features were added in Remix:
- 24 new vehicles (including some from brands not in the original version, such as GMC, Infiniti, Pagani, and Scion)
- Tokyo, as a returning city, which is a slightly updated version of the Tokyo city from Midnight Club II. It serves as optional career mode, Tokyo Challenge.
- 25 new licensed songs
- Additional races and battle maps
- Recolored Menu UI, being recolored from a mostly blue/gold UI to a red/black/silver colored user interface
