Microsoft will consolidate its entire Games for Windows Live Marketplace into Xbox.com, according to a blurb posted on the official site. No timeframe on the switch was given, other than “soon.”
“Games for Windows Marketplace will fully transition over to Xbox.com. Now you can get all of your gaming needs in one place. It’s convenient, it’s concentrated, and it’s a whole lot of great games,” reads the announcement.
Could this move mean bigger and better things for GFWL? Or is Microsoft merely moving dead weight around? Let’s hope for the former. The company went live with a promising revamp of the GFWL storefront earlier this year, though the buzz was fairly short-lived.
