That sounds fantastic, but i probably not buy into windows 8, the whole 2 stage cycle and all. Here is an interesting read. http://www.geek.com/articles/games/windows-8-to-play-xbox-360-games-not-likely-20110712/

That would completely defeat the purpose of having to buy a 360. It's not gonna happen.

Nah, I bet it was just clay, mud, and grass. But you never know, they might have used cow shit or something. :S

I just don't see microsoft doing this, it'd be a huge blow to the console gaming industry, but I don't see how those sales would spillover into something microsoft can market. In other words, it'd hurt mirosoft's competitors in the gaming industry, but it wouldn't benefit them. Moreover, I find that it raises the question, "Could the red ring of death crossover to your laptops?" After all, my impression is that microsoft will simply emulate an Xbox, which may lead to more of the same, and might even engender more glitches due to hardware compatibility issues, remember, microsoft couldn't even stabilize the Xbox, despite the fact that they had control of the entire process and completely uniform components.

Overall, I'm not sold on the concept or the chances of it happening.

Duh! PS3 is the way forward! Losers!

Would be nice for Xbox users, but most computers aren't capable in terms of hardware to run Xbox games. Overheating and all that, as Pyro said.

Somehow, the 360 has more processing power than a computer with a Core i7, reaching the 2.7 Teraflops (The i7 has aproximately 109 gigaflops)...

Flops is a unit that measures the amount of operations made by a processor/computer...

Well, Logical processors are very weak compared to Graphical ones... For example, the 2008's ATI Radeon HD 4870X2 used to reach 2.4 TeraFlops...
