    X-Box Games app and Games for Windows Live account merge?


    I am completely new to Windows 8 since I installed it today, and when I went into the X-Box games app, I couldn´t see any of my purchased games from GFWL, what gives? It would only seem logical or doesn´t it?

    Well, yeah I was hoping that would happen but at this time there is no merging yet but maybe in the future.
    The Xbox games app shows your profile and scores and that is about it. I figure the reason is the games you bought are not Metro Apps which still uses a Client. Maybe the Client would be updated to Xbox Games instead since the client is not in the metro app thing.

    I can say the Client works:
