Horrible idea! Steam is too big as it is! PC Market thrives on competition, not monopoly! Microsoft should make a standard API where various digital distribution services can simply plug in and provide a unified interface to everything that steam/origin/uplay/gog/greenman are offering. That way it doesn't matter where you bought the game from, it will work the same way. Just like it doesn't matter if you bought physical game from bestbuy or walmart or gamestop or whatever other retailer there is.
