Connect console players with PC players?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So with Windows 8 currently in Beta, and the threads I have read about Windows 8 allowing you to play Xbox games on your PC, should they start joining the console players with the PC players? Lots of people are saying that PC gaming is dying, maybe this will bring some people back to the PC? More games for everyone, more competition, etc... I can already imagine what some of you are going to say... "Console players are at a disadvantage to PC players"... With some of the videos I've seen on YouTube of people playing CoD and BF3, they're pretty damn good with their controller. Now I'm not talking about doing this with the current generation of consoles, I'm talking about when Microsoft makes a new Xbox. I'm not too sure if Sony/Nintendo can make their players connect with the people playing on PC, who knows though. So.. thoughts on this topic anybody?

Console players can't compete.

Microsoft a few years back tried this as a test. They used a some Xbox pro and matched them up against average PC gamers. The test was done playing a FPS game (can't remember which one). They did this running cross platform for a week just to see what kinda results they would get out of the experiment. Needless to say after a week of testing Microsoft through out the idea because there was no way that the Xbox guy's could compete.

Google this and there are hundreds of sites talking about it.
