“Members of our passionate communities across Xbox 360 and Games for Windows can now purchase and get details on their favorite games, all in one place,” said a Microsoft spokesperson. “All user 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.”
