Default Console-To-PC Program Leaked?

The leaks just keep on comin'! This next one is about a program called Trioxide for your PC. Trioxide will supposedly allow you to play console exclusive games on your PC using the same controller from the original console it was on. For example, you could play Resistance on your PC using your Dualshock3, or Crackdown with an Xbox 360 controller. Again, this is just a rumor, and that is the only piece of information regarding Trioxide, so we'll have to wait and see.

This doesn't sound very convincing.

i dunno about this the hardware requirements for a PC to run emulated consoles are pretty high as stuff like PS3 and Xbox is specifically designed just for playing games etc and PC's arent natively designed for playing games
So what a lot of the geeks and hackers are just as good as professional programmers , look at linux thats just a bunch of "geeks and hackers" yet thats pretty good in fact in some ways its on par with windows except it dosent have mainstream support from all the big software/game companies

linux is free, therefore most companies wont support it. same with this idea. its upto the geeks and hackers to do it all themselves. my post above still stands though. it wont happen, or will take many many years

Haha this article is confusing... cause no way are you emulating 360 games on PC... and otherwise you can just buy a 360 controller for "Games for Windows."
