It had been widly reported that come the end of the 31st of june the much maligned and some would say hated games for windows live would become no more as microsoft were set to switch it off for good.
This would have left several games unplayable with out a patch not unlike the recent closure of gamespy.
However according to MCV this is not happening and microsoft themselfs saying that they are continuing to support the platform which is good for games that rely on it and didnt look like they would have had any chance of a patch.
It’s good news for the games that were in limbo and for the players that still play them.
The big question is what have Microsoft got planned for games for Windows live now? What do they have planned for the pc? Time will only tell.
