I can't believe no-one has posted this already, as it's a fairly big piece of news. A couple of weeks ago Microsoft made some important announcements. I've summarised the most important points here: - New Windows Live Marketplace with downloadable digital content (similar to Steam and Xbox Live). - Refunds to existing members of Games For Windows Live (paid version of course). - No online fees with Games For Windows any more (finally a reason to play Gears Of War online on PC!). - Live Marketplace will have "plenty of support" on launch (more 360 ports anyone?). - DirectX 11 will release with the next Windows operating system, and will be available on Vista same-day.
