Games for Windows Live is being relaunched again.
Considering all the fun I had last time, I personally can’t wait for this. I am sure we’re all very excited to see if the Marketplace will actually allow us non-Americans to spend our money once this merger goes through.
That would be incredible. Then they’d just need to do something about their horrible client, the horrible restrictions it places on games, the horrible infrastructure it allows games to use, and all the other ways in which it currently tries so very hard to make games unbuyable, unpatchable, and unplayable. If they then also were to start taking potential security issues seriously, then we might finally have reached a point where it stops detracting value from the games it is inflicted upon.
Or, of course, this could be yet another attempt at “rebranding” the same miserable junk “service” they’ve had for years. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time they put out press release about how the service is going to improve.
