Windows 8’s app store “profoundly positive” — Epic’s Mark Rein

The recently announced addition of an app store to Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 8 OS has Epic Games vice president Mark Rein excited to the point of tweeting about it. Twice!

“Windows 8 getting a proper app store! Woo-hoo!” Rein scribbled. “This will be profoundly positive for the future of PC gaming.”

He later added: “Hopefully it means every single Windows 8 PC will have a pre-installed, trusted, curated, easy-to-use app for buying software.”

How the system will work remains unclear for now with the software giant yet to elaborate on the matter. With Epic’s big iOS success story Infinity Blade, however, it’s easy to see why Rein would be enthusiastic.
