Microsoft is to soon merge its PC gaming service Games for Windows Marketplace within its console branding official site Xbox.com.
A brief announcement on the official GFW homepage states that the PC digital delivery store will be absorbed into its console hub.
“Games for Windows Marketplace will fully transition over to Xbox.com. Now you can get all of your gaming needs in one place. It’s convenient, it’s concentrated, and it’s a whole lot of great games,” read the site.
Microsoft has confirmed to Eurogamer that the merge will take place on July 11, and issued the following statement.
“All of the same content from GamesForWindows.com will be available on Xbox.com so members of communities across Xbox 360 and Games for Windows can purchase and get details on their favorite games, all in one place,” the spokesperson explained.
“All account information will remain the same and community members can still take advantage of their Xbox Live profile in their Windows games and stay connected to friends who are playing on the PC.”
