Microsoft Opens Online Store

Microsoft has launched their own online store with out much fanfare.  The Microsoft Store has PC and 360 titles and of course almost all other Microsoft products.

Microsoft is finally catching up with Sony and joining the ranks with a online store, but is this something we will be able to access with the NXE that is due out Wednesday and why has it taken Microsoft until 2008 to get a online store?   Time will tell and why would you want to purchase a game with a shipping charge of $7.00 attached to it and not just go through Amazon or pick it up at our local retailer.
