    Windows 8 Allows Xbox 360 Games to be Played on PC


    Cool news, isnít it? Rumors state after the release of Kinect SDK for Windows 7 that you can play all Xbox 360 games on the upcoming Microsoft Windows 8 PC operating system.

    Well If Its True, What would you wanna play on PC?

    Gears of War 3, Halo Reach or Kinect Games?

    This sounds like another nail in Nvidia's coffin. If Intel's new generation of CPUs with graphics on chip kill the lower and middle range graphic card market that only leaves them with the top end.
    If then the majority of gamers start playing console ports of games on their pcs, the games companies will gradually stop making the graphically superior pc ports of games.
    Consequently there'll be no market for high end graphics cards either.

    I agree with johnwillyums....also why would you want to play a game from a console that's technically inferior on a superior PC? If you have a good gaming rig games can be much better on a PC than a 360 anyway. I am not bashing the 360, its a good little console but its getting a little dated now but I can see the benefits of this feature, like when your 360 dies you can keep playing your games on your PC. I also wonder if there will be cross platform multilayer too? It would be fun to play with my mates from my PC to their consoles.

    That would be funny, MS is actually going to integrate an Xbox360 emulator into Windows 8? It is cool but I think it is just a rumor

    I don't see it happening for a few reasons.
    1) It would cannibalize sales of the console which they've put too much money and manpower in to give up on it now.
    2) It would be a pirates wet dream come true. Not only would they get PC exclusives but now they have every 360 available to them without doing a thing.

    @theclassic Killer points. Those two reasons alone make this news very... unlikely to heppen.

    if this is true then there will be nonstop hacking in all games especially mw2 lobbys because in the pc version if you use alteriw you get console so you can mod dvars there will be a console made for legit games i believe

My games want to connect to Xbox, but I haven't got Xbox
I have downloaded some basic games like Solitaire, Mah Jong, and Freecell. Every time I run them, the app tries to communicate with my Xbox. It just happens that I don't own an Xbox. Is there any way I can configure the games so they don't try this rather futile communication?

I was just wondering as I am new to Windows 8 and Xbox...can you actually play the games that have the "Xbox" label on top that you download from windows store onto your Tablet/PC on your Xbox? I checked for some of them in the game download section on the Xbox but could not find them.
