Microsoft Launches New Xbox Online Store: Integrated with Cloud Gaming, Wish List and More


Microsoft is starting to release a new online web store of the Xbox that integrates Xbox Cloud Gaming (xCloud), wish lists and more. The new Xbox online store includes buttons to add games to wishlists, quick access to redeem codes and full Xbox Cloud Gaming integration. If you are an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate member, just click play on a compatible game and it will stream instantly from the web.

The Tamelucas Twitter user first saw the new Xbox online store yesterday, and it only appears to be available in Canada. It’s very different from the Microsoft Store and has a similar design to the rest of the Xbox UI. You can also use the web store to quickly install games on an Xbox console you own, or buy the game as a gift for a friend.

If you’re interested in trying out the new Xbox online store, check out this page for Halo Wars: Definitive Edition, which also supports Xbox Cloud Gaming. Microsoft hasn’t officially announced this new Xbox web store, but as it’s already appearing in Canada, we hope to see it launched in other regions soon.
