Changes afoot for Games For Windows Live

The Games For Windows Live Marketplace will be revamped next month.

As well as an aesthetic redesign, the service will be receiving a host of new features, including an Xbox Live-style Deal of the Week, pre-order incentives and more, according to Joystiq.

Microsoft group product manager Peter Orullian also told the site that his team will be constantly adding much-requested functions such as a ratings system, and that Xbox 360 owners will be able to spend their MS Points on the new GfW Live Marketplace.

“The store is really going to be a destination for games for PC gamers,” he said. “My focus [is to] evolve the store and help gamers find the games they really care about.”
