Xbox Live, PC’s and Windows 8

Microsoft has confirmed that XBL will be heading out to PC’s next year when Windows 8 comes around.  As far as I know no one really knows what this means though.  Will PC players finally be united with console brethren or will I simply be able to modify/change my XBL desktop?  Only time will tell but if experience and history is any indication, I’m assuming it will all be a huge let down.

Yes my glass is always half empty.

  1. My personal opinion of pc and console sort of combining is that if it is where pc can play online against controller users will be a very unfair advantage. Hopefully there will be some kind of restrictions or some kind of playlist changes where controller can only be in or m/kb can only be in and then a combination lobby of them both. Any sort of co-op would be phenomenal for the 2 combining, being able to play with your friends from pc would be very fun. Hope you enjoy my opinion, hope you reply.

  2. Maybe our world will get just a little bit brighter and then come crashing down when they do everything except kb/m integration.

    There is no glass.

    Whether or not it’s an unfair advantage I think it has to happen in order to move consoles forward. Many people that play consoles would still refuse m/kb even if it was offered as an option, but a controller is probably the single greatest factor in keeping consoles back. Jesus, there are entire classes of games (MMO’s, RTS’s) that simply aren’t playable with a controller.
