Microsoft is planning on opening up a mega-sized store in Mall of America later this year, and not only will this be their biggest store yet, they plan on opening it directly across from an Apple store, and will offer help and advice (including the fabulously derivative "Answer Bar"), product sales and a vast array of Microsoft software titles. For Microsoft to compete against Apple's 300+ stores across the world, they need to pull out the big guns for this head-to-head battle.

It looks as if Microsoft plans on putting their best foot forward with this new store location, showing off their new electronics like Xbox 360 slim, Kinect and Windows Phone 7. The Microsoft Stores carry all their electronics and hardware, including the Zune HD, Windows 7, Office 2010, and many, more products.
