    i don't think you'll be able to play Xbox games on the PC, i think this maybe the push for cross platform gaming though.

    I think when they say Xbox Live on PC, that means that you will be able to play PC games with your Xbox Live account, but not actually play Xbox games on the PC. Man, if that were true, we'd all throw away our Xbox, and I don't think Microsoft wants us to do that.

    MrNeeds, for that exact reason I stopped after my first one. As long as XBL for PC =/= GFWL, it's all good.
