Microsoft hasn't officially revealed the full feature set for Windows 8 yet, but according to uncofirmed reports from InsiderIs, Xbox 360 games will be playable on the PC with this new operating system.
Xbox 360 on PC will have the same subscription fees that you currently pay for on Xbox Live, but online gaming will run through the Windows Live Marketplace, although – in the early stages – PC users won't be able to play against those running the game on an Xbox 360 console.
InsiderIs sources claim that Microsoft believes this will extend the current generation hardware lifespan, and will give the giant an additional revenue stream.
