    Microsoft, when will you fix this? I would like to play the games I purchased from you in the past and no one from Microsoft has ever once provided an explanation or a refund to anyone who purchase a game or DLC through the Games for Windows Live Marketplace
    when that was still active.

    :)

    I have been in discussions with Microsoft representatives since October 2019 on this subject and have pushed for the restoration of the Games for Windows Marketplace in various ways for months. Long story short, there is nobody to talk to at Microsoft who
    can make an actual difference or who can give a comprehensive answer. Unfortunately there is not enough community involvement for Microsoft to even bat an eye to this anymore.

    And to those who say they have the right to revoke access to people's purchases any time they feel like it, that may be so, but how disgraceful is it to do so without any prior announcement? Have they ever, EVER announced a clear, fixed date when people
    would indefinitely lose access to all of their past purchases from the Games for Windows Marketplace? I'll save you the search; the answer is no, not at all. They just pulled the plug one random day with no respect and consideration for their customers, just
    because the platform's "old". Pathetic excuse from a company like Microsoft and even more pathetic to sanction such practice. Shameful, simply shameful.

    The last official announcement about the Games for Windows Marketplace was in August 2013 when they closed the Marketplace for new purchases, while
    promising to preserve access to our past purchases:

    you purchased licences to play games not the games themselves, in the terms of the licence they hold the right to cease or revoke access to said software after a certain amount of time if they choose to or if they need to.

    unfortunately all software is like this and has been since the beginning.

    This applies to all software and all companies.

    even if you buy the disc, the disc and packaging is yours, the software on the disc is not, you just own a licence.

    Hello,

    Not to be entirely rude towards Microsoft or Google however they are one in the same in that aspect. They invest, and once it falls flat they drop it entirely. I fear that you are doomed by this circumstance my friend. I wish you luck on getting a refund for
    what you have bought.
