The Gaming World Rumour Mill

Rumour: Xbox 360 Games playable on Windows 8.

This the big rumour today courtesy of http://www.insideris.com.

Apparently, Windows 8 will allow you to pop in a 360 disc into your PC and play the game. Of course, your PC will have to be powerful enough to run the games. But what if you don’t have an Xbox 360 and lack the games?

Never fear! The download market is here! Well, for a price anyway. PC Gamers will be able to buy a program that acts like the Xbox 360 Marketplace, and allow gamers to download full titles. Maybe this will stop PC gamers having to wait for console releases ported over.

So, why do this?

Is this a signal that Microsoft are moving onto their next console and so not too worried about losing hardware sales on the Xbox 360? Why buy a 360 when you can play the games on your PC?

It’s a likely scenario and would fit with the rumours that the next MS console is going to be revealed at E3 2010.
