Microsoft is shutting down Xbox.com’s PC Marketplace next week, the company announced through a post on the Xbox.com support page.

“As part of the recent Xbox 360 system update, Microsoft Points will be retired and the Xbox.com PC Marketplace will be closed as of August 22, 2013,” a post on the support page reads. “We encourage you to spend your Microsoft Points balance prior to this change. Although you will not be able to purchase new games, you can continue to enjoy previously purchased content by downloading it through the Games for Windows Live client software as usual.”

Games for Windows Live will be unaffected by the removal of the PC Marketplace from Xbox.com—it simply means that players can’t use the website to make their Windows PC–related purchases.
