Default Microsoft readying on-demand gaming website

Users will be to login with a Windows Live ID and pay via credit card, or through Microsoft Points. Microsoft is promising a “Deal of the Week” and recurring seasonal specials to attract PC game aficionados, but makes no specific mention of any pricing scheme — discounted or otherwise — planned for the store. Other features promised for the site include “dedicated publisher pages,” re-downloads of already-purchased titles, and “ultra-fast” download speeds.

I guess thats cool, but methinks Steam will always be better than GFWL marketplace.

I would be impressed if they made XBLA games available.

I see Batman:AA for $29.99, no competition for Steams weekend deal of $13.60 that I just took advantage of

For me, these DL services are a no go unless the files can be mirrored on local servers and be unmetred by my ISP. That's the only reason I've embraced steam lately, can't have games taking up 10-30% of my dl limit in one hit.

Steam FTW.

The fact the US are looking into doesn't give us much hope of ever having it unlimited.

BTW on the current service GTA: SA is 3bux.

Steam is GREAT. Awesome service, customer service is top notch, and their deals are great.


I hate paying for a Microsoft OS, let alone anything else. I refuse to fund their "gaming" profiles.
