Windows 8 To Support Xbox 360 Games
Quote:Remember when Steve Ballmer said that Windows 8 will offer a real push for a PC gaming? Ever wondered what would it be?

Well, according to Andrew, the upcoming Windows 8 OS will include a feature which allows you to play Xbox 360 games on your PC.

You heard it right: a native Xbox 360 app for your Windows machine.

Stay tuned as wee try to dig more information in the upcoming months.

Update: You can read more about it here.


Im sorry, WAT

This is just bridging the god dam gap, the hell is the point in having an xbox when you can just play them on pc?

Shame of having an Xbox?  You some kind of super hardcore Sony fanboy or something?

Not that I have an Xbox or am planning to get one in the foreseeable future either, but I definitely don't see how it's shameful to have an Xbox.

GUCCI?
Well that too! BUT Not exactly the brand GUCCI!
GUCCI is what I call the girl I'm in ♥ with :)
It's kind of like her pet name!
LOL :)

Well, yeah. Why buy an xbox when you can play xbox games on a more practical console.

RE: Windows 8 To Support Xbox 360 Games
well...
while everyone else seems disappointed

I'm suddenly more interested in xbox 360 games assuming this is true...
I have nothing against console games, I'm just always too glued to the PC to play them. Now that I can play them on PC, I'll look to buying new xbox games and I'll be glad to finish some old ones I've had but never actually played.

microsoft win?


I also wonder how long anti piracy will be able to prevail with windows playing xbox games
and in terms of online/xbox live support, "hello hackers"
