If you are a big fan of PC gaming and aren't a fan of having to schlep down to the local game store when you need a new title, Microsoft has made a new announcement you might be interested in. The software giant is set to relaunch its Games for Windows Marketplace offering online access to games via a web browser.




The updated service will offer a streamlined experience that Microsoft built from the ground up for performance and ease of use for gamers. Users will be able to access the service online from anywhere they can get internet access. The store will have fast downloads, fewer clicks to purchase a game, and the ability to redownload games that are purchased if needed.


The service will also offer deals and discounts to gamers with a Deal of the Week offering weekly along with other seasonal offers and more. Users will also be able to search by genre, game title, and more. The store will have games from major studios and games can be purchased with Microsoft Points or a credit card. The updated service is set to launch on November 15.
