Xbox.com PC Marketplace Dies a Few Days Later

By NAG3LT24-08-2013

The demise of Microsoft's PC digital game store has been postponed a little. At some point MS changed the date from the earlier reported August 22nd to the Sunday, August 25th. So for those who still have any plans to buy something on the service, this is the last chance. However, investing any additional money into the service does not look like a good idea, as it is very likely that the Games for Windows Live service itself will shut down in a year. Hopefully, game developers will patch their games before that, otherwise there will be more reasons for disappointments among gamers.

So what's gonna happen to games that require GFWL to play? Dark Souls may get a patch but I doubt capcom's gonna give a shit about Lost Planet 2 which finally went on sale.

On an additional note, I hope players will also still be able to access games and DLC they purchased directly through the GFWL. Also curious what will happen to the Batman Imposters game as everything initially used GFWL on it.

Goodbye and thou shall not be missed... How much I hated GFWL.

I hope at least the devs will patch their games though, such as Arkham City and such, or better yet, move them over to Steamworks (like other devs have done in the past on titles such as Borderlands and Company of Heroes)
