Games for Windows Live client only launched support for purchasing and downloading full games last December. Since then updates to the games list have been few and far between. Today, however, Microsoft added a number of new and older games that can be purchased from the Games For Windows Live client software.
Among the games now available are Assassin's Creed 2, Splinter Cell Conviction, Max Payne 2, Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, Borderlands, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl and Microsoft's own Age of Empires III. Games For Windows Live also has the new Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands available for purchase and download. Finally two older games in the series, The Sands of Time and The Warrior Within, are available for download. Both are also on sale for just $2.49 each, a 75 percent price cut, until Monday, June 14. Microsoft claims they will have day-and-date releases of other upcoming new PC games on Games for Windows Live and they will have over 100 games to download by year's end.
