Omega Five was last confirmed available on Xbox 360 on January 21st, 2019. This is the last date that Archive.org captures show that the game was available to buy. The cause for the delisting is uncertain but it may be related to Konami’s acquisition of Hudson in 2012. After maintaining the title on the Xbox 360 marketplace for so many years, Konami may have chosen to stop paying to keep it online. It is also possible that without a team to maintain the title it was removed for compatibility issues or similar technical complications.
