The Xbox Games Store (formerly known as the Xbox Live Marketplace) is Microsoft's digital distribution platform used for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 video game consoles. The service allows users to download and purchase video games from the Xbox Live Arcade as well as full Xbox One and Xbox 360 titles, add-ons for existing games, demos and other miscellaneous content such as gamerpics and Dashboard themes.

Previously, the service also offered sections for downloading video content such as films and TV episodes but was superseded by "Xbox Music" and "Xbox Video" (known now as "Groove Music" and "Microsoft Movies & TV" respectively).

As of late-2017, the Xbox Games Store was replaced on Xbox One by the Microsoft Store as the standard digital store for all Windows 10 devices.
