If it's Win 10 store only I'm out.

I would agree, but I discovered one massive advantage the Windows Store has. I can buy one copy of a game and play multiplayer with my brother. We did it with Forza Horizon 3, bought one copy on the Windows Store, both could play it together on our Windows 10 PC's. Half Price Multiplayer is worth all the other BS for me.

That's all well and good, but for someone like me, a person who doesn't do split screen or account sharing, it doesn't really pose as a massive advantage over me buying it on Steam and having access to full mod support.
