Its a little late for MS to jump on the bandwagon now, if want it to really succeed now, they'd have to really impress people.
They should have had a tiny bit of vision even as little as 3 years ago seeing how fast steam was growing and worked on making a better client/content manager than steam. I've always been underwhelmed by things like steam's server browser and other features, MS could have beat them easily with a small investment. But no, nowadays they really only care about console market, and this underwhelming store release shows that all that talk about re-dedicating themselves to PC is just that... talk. Just like when they threatened to sue anyone who uses Kinect on other things than xbox 360, despite that they make a profit on every one sold. Instead of monetizing it on PC, they just want to kill any potential market for it outside of consoles.

So, MS, what are you going to underwhelm us with next in this rededication to PC?
