Outrun Online Arcade pulled from PSN

I think we finally got some light as to why Outrun Online Arcade never came out in the US on PSN, since SEGA has now pulled it from the European PSN store after 18 months on the market. Has to do with licensing issues with Ferrari.

“Due to the expiry of the contract with Ferrari, Outrun Online Arcade will remain offline on PSN but will still be available on XBLA until Dec 2011,” – SEGA Rep

Could have gave us a bit of a warning, right? Seems that the license is still OK for Xbox, all the way till 2011. Though, from the sound of the quote, SEGA does not plan on re-licensing the brand and this probably means no more Outrun. Shame.
