That isn't to say that I don't enjoy console games, but that I feel that the precision control that you get with a PC as well as the raw processing and graphical power trumps that of a console. The problem with this is that I end up being a sad lonely gamer because most of my friends prefer console gaming, so you can imagine how excited I was to hear a rumor from In Entertainment that essentially said that all of my problems could be solved next gen. In the article, which you can read for yourself in the description, they write about a rumor that the Xbox 720 could be able to boot PC games.Essentially, your Xbox720 would be a console/PC that could run games from both platforms. This opens up the console PC discussion to some interesting issues. Number one, will the Xbox720 be able to keep up with PCs, or will it simply run PC games at a lesser quality? Number two, if it can run PC games as well as a PC, how will they maintain a low console price point? And finally, if they can run games as well as a PC, and maintain a low cost, will that spell the end of PC gaming?My guess is probably not, because the customizability and upgrade potential of a PC will always be better than a console, but it opens up an interesting can of worms.The thing that I'm most excited about with the possibility of this being true is that it sounds like it could finally open up the door to cross platform play. Anyway, what do you guys think? Are you excited about this rumor? Think it's realistic? While this is just a rumor at this point, it KINDA makes sense since Microsoft also makes Windows, which means the console could potentially run on a Windows operating system...
