Games for Windows Marketplace going to merge with Xbox.com on July 11. Games for Windows Marketplace will no longer have to drift through life alone. Microsoft announced this week that the Steam competitor will be absorbed by Xbox.com a seemingly logical merger, given the site’s association with Xbox Live.
The move comes in spite of an attempt on Microsoft’s part to completely revamp the service late last year. All of the Games For Windows content will find a new home at Xbox.com. Back in November, the GFW site received quite the overhaul in an attempt to bring a more accessible experience to its web hub. So we hoping it takes advantage of its last few days of freedom in style by sitting around in its underwear playing video games.
