Maybe they will make Xbox Branded PCs instead of consoles.
Limited use windows 8 for for the next X Box for the GUI/OS.
They have to cut into Alienware sometime!

Also, here is more to the rumors of the games running on Windows 8.

It'll just be for crosstalk crap. Never will they make win8 work with 360 games. Not happening. Their consoles would sell even less.

We can already do cross-platform play. It's totally possible with the current GFWL structure. But in testing, PC users obliterated console users, so they took cross-play out. I doubt they'll just put it back in but a bit fancier.

Quote:
The founder of Voodoo PC, Rahul Sood, says that Microsoft once floated the idea of implementing cross-platform play between the PC and Xbox 360 for a range of titles. Thing is, testing didn't go so well.

The proposal, part of Microsoft's LIVE push, popped up "many many months ago", and would have allowed people playing games available on both PC and 360 - like Gears of War - to take each other on. Kind of like 2007 shooter Shadowrun, only people would actually play it.

Problems quickly arose in testing, however, when Microsoft found that even the best console gamers simply couldn't compete with the accuracy a mouse and keyboard afforded a PC player. "The console players got destroyed every time", Sood says. "So much so that it would be embarrassing to the XBOX team in general had Microsoft launched this initiative."

Lols.....makes sense. Look at the area of movement of an analog stick and compare it to a mouse pad. I wish they would keep it in so console gamers could really see how much better you can be with a mouse and keyboard....until they get humiliated like that multiple times, they'll always deny it.

It takes no skill using keyboard & mouse so of course it's better than a pad wich requires skill.

FPS games just can't be played on a mouse and a keyboard. It becomes too easy and people go lone wolves and avoid any use of tactical sense. As an xbox player coming into PC world, I was just rampaging through PC gamers getting insanely high scores you just can't get on xbox.


Anyway, using a pad is more fun than keyboard & mouse anyway. Comfy couch FTW.

I even enjoyed Portal 2 better on PS3 than on the PC. It just feels more natural using a pad than keyboard/mouse for me.

True but that's from design and not limitation. I have placed the disks in my mac before and explored them. 360 games just don't perform normal operations in a PC as a deterrent to piracy. Which was worked around.

No he's not taking the piss or trolling; I'm going to take a guess and say he's just a total retard.

I've just recently gotten into multiplayer pc gaming via BFBC2 (by getting into it I mean putting in some real time as opposed to my useual hour or so and never again) and there are some definite area's console have an advantage over pc's. For starters my reflexes arn't great so I have a KD ratio of 1 to 8 or something like that. I'm not big on KD but that's so bad I feel like a detriment and it's harder because I played a lot of the game on Console so I know the in's and outs. I am just not as good at shooting and I worry I'll never progress to a point where I'll be competitive. On console I was average or slightly above in aiming but was decent on strategy. On pc's everything I try to bring from console to pc ends with me getting shot, usually at extreme distances.

These are all just personal problems though. Other advantages console have is cheating is more easily controlled. On Console the only cheats (Mostly) just exist as bugs in the game which you can usually work around but on pc there are tons of external programs that things like punk buster have only limited ability to block. The only way to really prevent it is to try to get into a server that has constant mod supervision and good luck with that. There are also performance issues. On console everyone has the same performance. That's probably only an issue on pc if you're the guy getting 27 fps when others are getting 60 but still.

Anyway it's a short list but it's a couple things I have noticed from my transition.
