Games for Windows LIVE nabs a sexy new user interface

0

While the digital download content provider of choice among Destructoid readers is no doubt Steam, there are certainly those out there who support Games for Windows LIVE (now that it's finally free); this post is for you.

In the next few weeks, the all-new GFW LIVE Marketplace will be released with trailers, demos, and downloadable content, but for the here and now, the service has received a much-needed facelift.

GameDaily spoke with Marketing Manager Michael Wolf, who had this to say about the new UI: "Rather than offer an 'Xbox Live for Windows' type experience, let's optimize the service for PC gamers – let's make a great PC online gaming service. As a result of that, we completely redid the interface."

When questioned about whether or not Steam's massive success had anything to do with the overhaul, Michael said that he views GFW LIVE as "complementary to what they're doing."

What do you make of this, guys? Are they taking the service in the right direction?
