Games for Windows + Xbox = ?

 
Games for Win­dows will merge with Xbox.com tomor­row July 11th mak­ing Xbox.com a sin­gle stop for con­sole, PC and mobile gam­ing no specifics have been released oth­er than the date of the merg­er con­firmed at Joystiq.com and Eurogamer.com. Here’s a link to the forums at xbox.com to check up on the “heat­ed” debate on the merg­er. Check it out  here:
    I think this is a sen­si­ble move to have one site for all gam­ing plat­forms. So what you think? Will this make a dif­fer­ence? Will it affect Steam in any­way?

    I don’t see how this changes things, oth­er than mak­ing it eas­i­er for Microsoft to man­age. Now they start pit­ting xbox­ers against the mouse and key­board and they will have prob­lems. Xbox gen­er­a­tion does­n’t deal well with get­ting their ass­es kicked.

    I think my intel was alit­tle off about the date of the merg­er, I just checked and Games for win­dows is still up and running…sorry about the mis­in­for­ma­tion guys…
    and
    that was already proved with shad­owrun which had mul­ti­play from the 360 to the PC and yes from what I under­stand the con­sol­ers did­n’t fare very well

    Yeah there was code in the ker­nal oper­at­ing sys­tem for win 8 show­ing some sort of xbox 360 errors and now every­one think spec­u­lat­ing about it.… engadget.com had a good post about it
