Until they find a way to crack it, it can't be done...
Not bad at all...

nope. Proprietary hardware. It's built to run as an xbox 360 and only an xbox 360...until somebody hacks the bios or something...

You could just play good games - PC games - and not even think about a console

Word.

However there are some games that will never make it to the PC that I absolutely love to play (Forza, Gran Turismo series). For me there always be that internal battle of whether to buy a new one or not.

I'd say save the money and get a new video card and play PC games. In the long run it may be the better investment.
