Microsoft took to the Windows Blog to announce the consolidated price tier structure to support the unified apps that will be available for both the Windows Store and the Windows Phone Store.

if you take a closer look you'll see that 300,000 of the apps are garbage. this is true about android and ios but because they have much more apps this is not apparent.

If Windows Store had 100,000 good apps I'd be happy. lol tbh all 3 stores suck, mostly crap but that's the price of "Accepting indies" which is accepting the worse possible crap ever made.

Sound's good
I like how some humble bundles include both the PC and Android version (and soundtrack) of the game
Would be great if MS could get the PC and WP versions to sync as well

Would be even better if there was a version of steam for Android and Windows Phone and IOS (doubt that though). Than you could buy your games on all 3 devices and have freedom to move around OS's like on PC.

That would be perfect, unfortunately probably no chance of happening :(

Also it would be cool if you could link your steam account with your uplay and origin accounts, then have all your uplay and origin games in steam (probably no chance of happening as well)

You can manually add uplay and origin games but yeah nothing official will happen.

improve those apps in windows 8. feels immature comparing to programs. also provide offline backup feature for the store apps.

That would be great Windows, tired of double purchasing apps that are the same on both stores.

Microsoft should just focus on their x86 code base Windows. Build modern features on that.
