Not entirely sure. Suppose its going to give you the same experience you would have on an Xbox directly on your desktop. Purchasing games, downloading game demos, game add-ons etc.

I'm curious how this will compete against things like Steam. Will there be voice chat and messaging as well or just the game market?
