Games for Windows LIVE getting Games on Demand

Games on Demand, the Xbox 360's way of letting you spend a needless amount of extra cash on games for the convenience of not leaving your home, is making its way to Games for Windows LIVE.

The service will be added on December 15, with a few games headlining the debut. Resident Evil 5, Red Faction: Guerrilla, and Battlestations: Pacific are set to be the big three. Surprisingly, "LIVE-enabled" versions of Osmos and World of Goo are also going to show up in Games on Demand.

Similarly, Tinker will be getting the same treatment, but it's going to be a free download. While it's nice to see Microsoft delving into smaller games rather than making GoD for PC an exact clone of the Xbox 360 service, there's a word I keep thinking of. What is that thing called again? Oh, right. Steam.

Regardless, this move puts us one step closer to the digital distribution future many of us are craving.
