they aint going to let your pc play console games. cause then they would lose the sales of consoles, lol.

i was in a games design lecture this morning, and they guy was like, yea, console revenue for games demolishes computer games because of the massive amount of pirated games for PC and it being harder to do on consoles.

they arent going to destroy that massive revenue so PC gamers can be happy

I think they could charge more for the individual hardware for PCs. A drive to play Xbox games, a pci card to control the controllers, a MS GPU (though you should be able to use any brand equivalent). Then they could sell alot of things that aren't "necessary" like their own line of PC hardware including everything.

I think it wouild be interresting.

The main reason I prefer consoles to pc is that consoles are much better for multiplayer when people are over. If they put out a card that let me run 4 controllers it would be awesome, and the ability to play xbox games on the PC would rock.

Plus, as has been said, they lose money on the console already. The line between pc and console is already blurred...why not erase it?

oh wow, lol, AMD GT Player, how many times do we all have to tell you! For one, USE PUNCTUATION OF SOME SORT! COME ON! If you can't do that, try a simple click on the enter key each time you finish a statement to break it up. Luckily this post was fairly short so this is actually the first one I've read through of yours, or more to the point, been ABLE to read through of yours.

And come on, lol, some of those spelling mistakes are ridiculous! Where and we're are two different things, haha, but enough meaningless whining from me.

The point is, sure, people would still buy that parts, but the expected outcome and profits from it would be infinitely lower than what they are receiving now. They are in it for the business, not the gamers, to put it bluntly. They are just after money, that's how the industry works.
