Microsoft Brings Games on Demand to the PC


On December 15, Games for Windows - LIVE will evolve beyond LIVE gaming and include a portal for accessing and downloading LIVE-enabled titles courtesy of Games on Demand.

Games on Demand for Windows lets users purchase and download titles from the Games for Windows - LIVE library right from their computer, and re-install their games whenever they want, wherever they want. Games for Windows - LIVE now gives users the flexibility to access and play their games where and when you want, all straight from their PC.

"With Games on Demand, we didn't just want to create a cut-and-paste version of existing digital distribution services," said Mike Ybarra, General Manager of LIVE Engagement Services. "We challenged ourselves to deliver an integrated platform that takes full advantage of the unique capabilities offered by the LIVE service. Our goal has always been to create a seamless online gaming experience for the Windows community, and Games on Demand is a great step toward that end."

The launch lineup will include recent hits like Resident Evil 5 (Capcom), Red Faction: Guerilla (THQ), and Battlestations: Pacific (EIDOS), as well as new exclusive LIVE-enabled versions of popular digital games like World of Goo and Osmos, distributed by Microsoft Game Studios. All games can be purchased either by credit card or with Microsoft Points. Games on Demand for Windows will be available in markets that currently support the Games for Windows ? LIVE service.

Microsoft is also offering an updated LIVE-enabled version of Tinker, formerly an exclusive Windows Vista Ultimate Extra, as a free download from the Games for Windows ? LIVE client.

"Connected digital experiences are defining the continued growth of Windows as a gaming platform," said Chuck Osieja, Creative Director of Games for Windows ? LIVE. "Today marks Microsoft's return to delivering Windows games built on unique LIVE experiences."

Games for Windows - LIVE delivers a connected experience for PC gamers, letting users enjoy a common Gamertag, Gamerscore, and unified friends list that carries across both supported PC games and the Xbox 360 console. The service also offers single and multiplayer Achievements, voice chat, text messaging and TruSkill online matchmaking.

To download the Games for Windows - LIVE client, visit www.gamesforwindows.com/live.
