Microsoft’s lead architect responsible for Microsoft Store Rudy Huyn took to Twitter to announce the new change. Huyn also revealed that the limitation of the 2000 exam was due to an old technical limitation. He further confirmed that the issue has been fixed and Microsoft Store can show more reviews per app or game.
He also shared some sample screenshots of some games with 66,000, 2, 19,000, and 5, 36,000 reviews. This is undoubtedly much more than the ceiling of previous reviews. Although it is not clear if there is still some kind of limitation in terms of the number of reviews or if the Microsoft Store, in the future, will show all available reviews for the app or game.
“An old technical limitation prevented the #MicrosoftStore from displaying more than 2,000 reviews per product in the past, this is something we had to fix and we are now very happy to announce that this limitation is finally gone”, Huyn said.
Although showing more reviews might not seem like a big deal. However, it certainly complicated things when deciding whether or not to download the app. Since the limitation has been lifted, it will allow users to review more reviews and have a proper preview of the app they are planning to download on their Windows PC.
The changes are a server-side update and you don’t need to download an update or anything for it.
