Xbox Live Marketplace now known as Xbox Games Store, “makes it easier for consumers” says Microsoft
Authored by Matt Hadden
Those of you that have used your Xbox for a long time will be well familiar with the Xbox Live Marketplace, but if you log onto your console today you might have noticed something strange, it has been renamed to Xbox Games Store.
Joystiq have contacted Microsoft to make sure that they didn’t make any sort of mistake and Microsoft have got back to them confirming the change of name:
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.
I’ve got no idea if they’ve completely changed the layout of the store or just the name of it, perhaps one of you guys could jump on your Xbox at some point today and find out for us?
