The Games on Demand service is coming to Games for Windows Live later this month

Today Microsoft announced that the Games on Demand feature that was released on Xbox Live earlier this year will soon be available for PC users.

The service will be launching on Games for Windows Live this month, with a launch line-up that includes Resident Evil 5, Red Faction: Guerilla and Battlestations: Pacific.

I can only hope that the pricing is a little bit more realistic than some of the games on Xbox Live Marketplace, as it kind of defeats the purpose of the service if it is cheaper to just go out and buy a copy of the games. It takes up less hard-drive space too.

Games on Demand will be released on Games for Windows on December 15th.
