Rumor: Puerto Rico to Arcade?

Boardgame Geek's forums are stating that Puerto Rico, a popular board game over at BrettSpielWelt has been taken down. Allegedly, another company obtained the rights for [sic] "online exploitation". One wild guess would be that they're referring to Microsoft. While every once in a while we here word of MS picking up some big name company, this doesn't sound too unlikely, as there are other board game titles supposed to be coming to Xbox Live Arcade later this year. Have you played Puerto Rico, either online or with (gasp!) real live human beings and would you find it to be a good addition to XBLA line-up?

1. Man, I love this game! With this AND Catan both coming to XBLA, I'm going to be spending a lot of time with my 360.

3. As much as I think it would be great if Puerto Rico does join Settlers of Catan and Carcassone on XBLA, I am disappointed that I will no longer be able to play it on Bretspielwelt. :(

4. Carcassonne, Catan, and now possibly Puerto Rico...
