?

you do realise that they mean the actual xbox games themselves, not a port to PC version.

Do not want!!!!

This would be just another reason for developers not to create PC centric games. There will be a stagnation when it comes to games using tech such as DX11. Developers will then only create 360 and PS3 games that won't make any use of the available tech which are commonplace with PC games. Examples of this would be things such as : Advanced Depth of Field, AA,AF,Higher Resolution Textures just to name a few. The disc for a 360 game can only hold so much information so it would be impossible for the games to have these and other options available.

You could easily use something like Xpadder to get around that.

You do realise that a bad console port amounts to the same thing as using a crappy XBOX game in the first place?

The point many are making is that they don't want their pc gaming experience dumbed down anymore than it has been already by console ports.

I'd imagine they'd need to use some sort of emulation tool installed to simulate 6 PowerPC threads of the 360. Or possibly some XNA tweak? Either way Windows 8 ain't gonna use x86 for this, probably SSE or some other instructions. Windows 7 is the last MS OS using x86, it will be dead after that.

Almost all multiplatform PC games released nowadays are console ports, this news can't possibly make anything worse. Besides they can add patches for PC to make AA and other settings work, doesn't have to be on-disc.

DUDE!!!

If this is true, just imagine the win value

Since it is their own software, maybe there could be advanced settings for PC? Even if it doesn't allow Live and/or requires the 360 controller for Windows and/or Windows 8 Ultimate, it would be worth it
