Let's get this clear, 360 disc games aren't confirmed to work on PCs. However, with Live being integrated into the next Windows iteration, how do you see this affecting Microsoft's gaming stake?
According to Insideris few months ago, Microsoft's next PC Operating System Windows 8 will allow gamers to play Xbox 360 games on it. Honestly, the rumour is too good to be true but on a similar note, it is now confirmed that "Xbox Live Will Be Built Into The PC".
Microsoft’s vice president of global marketing Mike Delman confirming:
"Live has been successful on the Windows Phone. Live will be built into the PC. It will be the service where you get your entertainment. We were talking about it — you will not just see consoles and handhelds at this show next year, this show’s going to morph into other devices."
Though it's pretty obvious, Delman hinted that the PC integration of Xbox Live may happen with the release of Windows 8. On whether its games will be playable on the OS, it's not here yet, but it certainly seems like a legitimate possibility and a very near future.
I personally think it's one of the better advertising strategies you could do. Of course, some people wouldn't touch it but I feel those are the same people that would prefer a Mac OS or even Linux instead of Windows. For everyone else, I'm sure they'd be tempted to try out at least one item or service on Live. So, what are your thoughts?
