As my colleague Chris Welch pointed out in his early review, the brand new storefront hundreds dramatically quicker than its predecessor. It’s been “optimized for the period of Recreation Move,” which means it’s simpler to see the variations between totally different variations of a sport within the retailer, and there’s a brand new give attention to parental controls.
The corporate has additionally up to date the way it feels to navigate the shop: it’s now simpler than ever to scroll by means of titles, classes, and pages. The brand new parental controls additionally emphasize security; the corporate says there aren’t any extra nameless logins, amongst different enhancements.
The modifications underscore simply how far Microsoft is wanting into the longer term and the way a lot effort it’s placing in to develop Recreation Move subscriber numbers (and, after all, income).
