Tomorrow the PC Marketplace closes and we can't even buy any new GFWL digital stuff. Any GFWL exclusive digital games and DLC I should buy now before it closes?

Also, Bioshock 2 requires online activation to install, so I guess that game is gone next year.

It's already being transitioned over to Steam.

I haven't finished Fable 3 yet, should I hurry up or lose my game? (or my saves)?

Also, those flatout games all use GFWL, same question?

What does this mean for games that use GFWL that are bought after it's shutdown?


I'm guessing it means every torrent site will suddenly have a lot of seeders for GFWL game cracks.

And microsoft will use it as proof that PC gaming has too much piracy to be worth the investment.

Pretty great news for the future, however a shame for any games that don't get patched for removal of the service.

still waiting for an official confirmation from MS that this is happening across the board.
Meanwhile, I have a bunch of damn GFWL games that I need to try to finish.

At first I thought it was just the marketplace. So they're actually taking down the login service with achievements/friends and such as well?

That sucks, I actually enjoy it because I can still interact with people on my 360's friends list. Steam is a great digital service but I don't like the way their community stuff is setup.
