It’s opening day for Microsoft’s Microsoft Store. But don’t expect to find any opening day bargains. I compared, and Microsoft is charging considerably more for many software titles compared to legitimate online vendors like Amazon selling identical products.
After launches in the UK, Germany and Korea, Microsoft is adding the American public to those who can now buy Windows, Microsoft Office, computer games and and more straight from the world’s largest software producer. The Microsoft Store offers digital downloads for most products or you can buy regular boxed versions.
I suppose it’s not surprising to see Microsoft open up its own online store, but why it took them so long to do it is a mystery.
