Games for Windows Live?!? working???

#1ItchyIsVegetaPosted 6/7/2014 10:38:44 PM
I was playing Street Fighter X Tekken on PC, which is still a Games for Windows Live title, and sure enough, I get a challenge from an online dude, and we played a game.

I thought the Games for Windows Live online servers were shut down.

I believe only the marketplace is actually shut down at the moment. The servers and service in general is supposed to be within the next month or two.

Ok, so here is my next question. Lets say in 3 months, I buy a new PC, and reinstall the game, and need to activate it again. Am I SOL?

As a boxed game owner I am also interested in this.

Probably. As of right now the only game Capcom's moved over from GFWL, or said they have intention of moving over, is SF4:AE.

So, it's officially time to sail the seven seas with games we've legally bought and can no longer play. What a time to be a sailor.

Time to start looking for some cracks for the games that I legally purchased. Serious though. How hard is it to keep one small server running for the sole purpose of activating a game? Not that hard. That or the publishers could be cool and release an official activation patch on their site or something.
