REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

Microsoft Rebrands Xbox Live Marketplace "Xbox Games Store"

Posted on Friday, August 30 @ 06:50:51 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Microsoft has officially changed the name of its Xbox Live Marketplace to the Xbox Games Store.

If you head over to the marketplace homepage you'll see the change. Joystiq questioned the company about the change and received the following response:

That's right, [Xbox Live Marketplace] is now called the Xbox Games Store, and will sit alongside the Xbox Music Store and Xbox Video Store. This is to make it easier for consumers to find content both on Xbox 360 today and Xbox One when it launches in November.

Sure, this may not be the most earth-shattering news in the world, but it's a clear indication of where the Big M is headed with the Xbox brand. We've got the Xbox Music Store and the Xbox Video Store, so calling it the Xbox Games Store seems like a logical change, no?
