Dumb! Just get rid of GFWL altogether. MS should just let Steam handle online distro and achievements if they must have them...

BTW also saw this.

I had heard that the 2nd hand console game business was really starting to hurt devs. Retail outlets push it so much, I wont be surprised if things swing back towards PC and/or console games come with activation keys (a few already have like Dead Space 2).
