Windows Live Store - concept for new Marketplace
Currently there are too many different stores for all Microsoft platforms – for apps, for games, for music, etc. Probably this is not the best way to browse and buy apps, games and music. So I decide to build a new combine Windows Store for all platforms – Windows Live Store. The basic idea is to have all in one place and access to your content with phone, PC, XBOX and tablet.
The current concept will take us in the future Apollo update of Windows Phone – with bigger and higher resolution screens, that will give us more information and better experience.
My idea is our account to keep all information about our downloads, purchased, uninstalled and refunded stuff. Also all application settings to be keep in the cloud and when you get a new device, only one synchronization divide us from our settings and apps.

And this will be the basic interface for PC and tablet. This is only the Games section, but the idea is clear:
Application management – manage all your orders, downloaded and purchased stuff and easy update and delete apps:
