Sorry about no picture everyone - N4G is glitching a little this morning.

So are we going to have to buy these games again even if we already own on xbox?

Why would owning an Xbox affect you purchasing games on PC? Or are you wondering if the games are free if you've already bought them on Xbox? Hmmm, I would have loved to get Skyrim for free on Xbox when I bought it on PC

I expect xbox 720 to bring in a complete cross platform generation.

I want the real stuff not 90% mini games. I am not sure if xbox live on windows is supposed to be for xbox owners away from xbox, pc gamers, or both.

Theyre simple "mini games" because they have to be compatible with any W8 device. Can you see a tablet, or budget laptop playing full blown xbox360 games?

Basically, the games will be designed to work on W8's basic hardware requirements.

I second that request.

Nice to see them bringing a healthy amount of games over. So is this the telling future of the next xbox? Certainly seems like it. One platform..many devices.

If they release full games, will you be able to play with increased graphical fidelity? For example, Gears 2 and 3? Would require developer support and PC development times for higher quality assets though.
