If Microsoft were able to add a modified version of windows onto their consoles, that would make gaming so much better. If the modified windows version were not too heavily modified, that would allow easy game porting over to PC for many exclusive Xbox titles, increasing game sales. This would also work with PC exclusive titles over to the Xbox. Microsoft would also be able to beat Sony to a free online multiplayer that would work exactly like it does on PC, and you could be able to play cross platform multiplayer games with friends. There is an another upcoming contender in the console market, and that would be steamboxes. If Microsoft were to add windows to their Xbox, there would be no way that steambox sales would surpass those of the Xbox. The Xbox would be cheaper, more powerful, and offer the exact same and more features. I hope Microsoft realizes this opportunity to dominate the console market, and takes it.
