Software theme

Uses the Windows LIVE online service. Similar to Xbox Live and actually bridges over to it.


Alternate names: XLive, GfWL

The first video game about Games for Windows - LIVE was released on May 29, 2007.

Microsoft Game Studios, Capcom and THQ has published most of these games

These may require that the Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistant system service is running to work properly. If the service is set to manual start, it may not be started by the games themselves properly (especially not if it's completely disabled).

This is not implied by the presence of Games for Windows label on games. Only when they include the whole Games for Windows - LIVE label.
