as for the emulation program there r a couple on the web there pritty suxy tho but me and my friend r in the prossesor of creating one
wont be done for a while tho
we ganna try and make it flawless my idea is pritty simple
just creat a program that shuts down all extra hardwair and mimckes xbox 360 hardware then after that try and make an exsact copie of the xbox 360 os
similar to how the wii emulates gamecube games
Well, good luck with that I think that most people would rather get an Xbox for $400 than buy a $2000 PC to run your emulator.

Can you give me a link to any proof that GoW is coming to PC? I'd like to see it.

I'm all for PC gaming, but there's always going to be a better market for consoles IMO.

wat r u talking about
pc games always have better graphics then the consels
not our fault u have outdated hardware
if u want the latest and greatest graphics your not ganan find em on a consile
have u seen crysis? i doubt a ps3 or a 360 could run that game
the one thing i do agree with u is that graphics cards come out so constant that developers never really get a chance to take advatage of the card

And it doesn't matter how powerful your computer is, unless you're going to be the one to program a flawless emulation program, it won't happen.
Acutally, it will. It'll probably be two years just like Halo.

As for Xbox 360 games being PC ports, not exactly. Depends on the publisher. Most Ubisoft games like Rainbow Six Vegas and Splinter Cell Double Agent are multiplatform and the PC versions are actually ported from the console versions. Theres going to be tons of Xbox 360 exclusive games in the future though.

Oh and, Crysis could easily run on the PS3 and Xbox 360. You can thank EA for not doing so. The only catch is that it'll be running on the DirectX 9 API, not DirectX 10, but the graphics would still be insanely awesome.

PC games usually have better graphics, but the difference is hardly noticable unless they ported it. The only problem with PC gaming is that if you want to enjoy the best graphics the game has to offer, you have to easily shell out double or triple the price of one Xbox 360. That's why consoles are so appealing. Some don't have the money of the interest to deal with high-end PC's so consoles are a great way to enjoy some high-definition gaming without burning the wallet.

Like UK said, PC programming is sloppy. Partially because of the fact that they have no set of hardware to specifically program with unlike consoles.

PC gaming is very expensive, i 380 quid for my gfx card. That could have got me a 360.

Check out this site I just found...don't know how accurate it is, but worth a look:
http://nexgenwars.com/

Obviously 360 is owning because it got such a head start, too bad it doesn't show monthly sales.
