Microsoft Kills ‘Xbox Live Marketplace’ – Long Live The ‘Xbox Games Store’

August 30, 2013 No Comments

The Xbox Live Marketplace is dead… Long live the Xbox Games Store.

Today, Microsoft has rebranded is iconic Xbox Live Marketplace and switched it to a more modern Xbox Games Store. The change which is already visible on the Xbox homepage. Joystiq approached Microsoft over the change and a spokeperson stated the following.

“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.”

One by One, Microsoft is rebranding everything with the word ‘live’ in it. I believe the last one standing at the moment is Xbox Live but I don’t believe that will be cnahing anytime soon. Crazier things have happened though

Thoughts?
