Microsoft opens online PC gaming shop-front
Points in store
Microsoft is opening the Games for Windows Marketplace - an online store that integrates Xbox Live and Windows Live services to make it easier to buy PC games.
Gamers can log on anywhere, re-download games they've already purchased and take advantage of special offers, seasonal discounts and a new Deal of the Week service.
Anyone with a Windows Live ID can immediately start to shop and in addition to credit card purchases, the Marketplace supports Microsoft Points, which allows users of Xbox Live, Zune Marketplace and Games for Windows to use their points across multiple platforms.
The Games for Windows Marketplace launches November 15. ®
