Thanks.

I wonder how long this will last then:

Or if 343 industries can even do it?

Why would I be "sad" or "happy"?

I'm aware of one GFWL-game in my library, "DiRT 2". There may be more, but I'm not currently aware of any other.

Now, technically I should be annoyed since the publisher didn't update the game. Realistically, I tried playing the game a couple of times and never even managed to complete the first race, so I can't really say I care about loosing it.

Other than that, seeing a GFWL banner on the shoppage -> no go, no matter how good the sale might be.

GTA V is coming to steam/PC I hope it doesn't use GFWL

So our GFWL games will be unplayable?

Probably the same as what happened when the Batman Arkham series stopped using GFWL. All saved-games disappeared. You can still start new ones, but the old saves just vanished.

If they know that GFWL is shutting down, don't you think they'd avoid using it in their game to be released AFTER it shuts down?

They didn't disappear.

The GFWL saves are in the old location. The update uses a new one.
