UNO was initially delisted on PlayStation Portable by January 3rd, 2013. The game was used in a buffer overflow exploit when run on the Vita to enable PSP homebrew software. The exploit was revealed on December 30th, 2012 but Sony didn’t begin pulling the game until the 2nd and 3rd in Europe and North America respectively.
UNO on DSiWare was last confirmed to be available on March 8th, 2014 on Nintendo.com. By the next Archive.org capture on October 9th the same page no longer displayed a price. Although the design of Nintendo’s site had changed in that time many DSiWare titles still displayed prices leading to the assumption the game was delisted between those two dates.
The PlayStation 3 and WiiWare versions of UNO were presumably delisted in 2015. PlayStationTrophies forum discussions in June of 2015 imply the game was removed around this time. Its WiiWare counterpart was likely delisted between then and November 2015. There is also some evidence that the game may have been delisted as early as 2013, shortly following its final sale in January of that year.
Relisting & Subsequent Delisting
On March 30th, 2018, reader BlackwinGzReborn commented on the site that the UNO Full Game Unlock for PlayStation 3 was once again available on the North American PlayStation Store for $4.99. The demo had been available for PlayStation 3 since 2010 but the ability to buy the full game was removed at some point in 2015.
However, on February 8th, 2019 another commenter, badman, pointed out that the game had yet again been delisted, this time taking the demo with it. This latest delisting suggests the game’s return may have been made in error or that a new license to the IP was in process but has fallen through. As of this update, no other delisted UNO titles have returned to sale.
