Games For Windows - Live 3.0 launched

Latest version of Games for Windows goes live

Microsoft has rolled out the latest version of Games for Windows - Live.

The 3.0 update features a number of new features. Most notably, an in-game marketplace now allows players to purchase and install content without leaving their game.

Live accounts can also be managed in-game, enabling players to purchase points, edit and add payment details, redeem codes and change Gamertags without exiting their session.

Additionally, the update introduces some anti-piracy measures. Microsoft says that server side authentication will link game licenses to Gamertags, allowing installation of a game onto any PC players use, while zero day piracy protection is said to keep games from launching before their intended street date.

The update is available to download now.
