In the early days of computers, software could be bought and installed from a variety of sources. While that is still true today, companies such as Apple, Google, and Microsoft have introduced their own storefronts which allows them to better control what kind of apps are used on their platforms.


Unfortunately for Microsoft, the Microsoft Store experience when it comes to gaming is a less than ideal one, and this is an area that the company has promised it will be addressing and improving in the future. According to Xbox boss Phil Spencer, “I think we’ve got a ton of work to do on Windows. Windows is something I’m very committed to, I’ve heard the feedback about our Store. I’m going to take a bigger leadership role on what’s going on with the Windows Store, make it really tailored to the gamers that we know want to see the best from what we have to offer.”

There have been users who have reported that the Microsoft Store has limitations, such as not being able to overlay apps such as Discord or Fraps, no support for NVIDIA Shadowplay, and the overall lack of users has also affected gamers who buy multiplayer games, such as an instance back in 2016 where Call of Duty players couldn’t seem to find enough players to form a game, eventually resulting in Microsoft offering a refund.
