If anything I think it will be better alongside the Xbox features you will be able to purchase independent game apps as well as normal PC games.

Windows 8 integrates with Xbox alongside the traditional PC games. I personally don’t see how it’s worse? Valve will of course be concerned because the new Microsoft store will be in direct competition with Steam.
