Over the weekend, Microsoft made the announcement on its site to rename the Xbox Live Marketplace as the Xbox Game Store. The change makes the second major change to the Xbox Live ecosystem in the past month, and gives consumers another thing to try in the Xbox Live Market.
The move by Microsoft is aimed to make user know the Xbox Game Store as the source to buy games for their Xbox One and Xbox 360 systems. It is a very simple, clear, and easy to understand name for the Xbox Gaming marketplace and should become huge later this year with the Xbox One.
Xbox Games What Does It Mean
Users who login to their Xbox Live account from different places in the world might see the Xbox Game Store or Xbox Games. Either way, this is the main online source for gamers to purchase either mainstream or independent games for the Xbox systems. It is clear that Microsoft is looking to brand the Xbox Games name as the hub for games, and as the Xbox One launches in November, it will become bigger than ever.
Still Top Rate Games and Free Games
What Microsoft and Xbox wants to still let users know is that the Xbox Games world is still the place to discover the hottest new games, add-ons, and more to enjoy on your Xbox 360, Kinect, Windows PC, and Windows Phone. This is the place where the new games are released, demos are available, and the latest games are available for the broad range of systems.
Mobile, Web Games and More
The Xbox Games store is the home for web games, mobile games, and console games. By taking out the Xbox Live Marketplace name, they are making it the center of gaming for Xbox and Microsoft products, and for its mobile line as well. It is a perfect realign for the upcoming months and for the potential huge months ahead.
This renaming might sound minimal to some, but it makes total sense for Microsoft followers. It names it the Xbox Games Store and makes it simple for the consumer of any age. It is the game store and this is where you shop for Microsoft and Xbox games.
