That's so cool...

Yeah, this is how I feel. Hell, there hasn't been a game inside of my Xbox for six weeks now. I use it every day, just for Netflix and I hate every second of it. There is no way that I will buy the next Xbox unless if I start making significantly more money out of nowhere as well as there being exclusives that I care about. So basically if Cave stays with Microsoft. I really hope they don't.

Just a rumor, but here's some relevant info/speculation:

The part about it running Windows 8 seems... odd.

The idea behind Windows 8 is that your console, phone, tablet, and laptop/desktop all run the same OS.

Plus the new 360 update looks very similar to a Windows 8 set-up. I would think Microsoft is trying to get people used to the Windows 8 format by doing so.

I'd be surprised if the next Xbox DOES NOT have some form of Windows 8. Perhaps it'll be locked down a bit to not support the classic desktop or something. Not sure. But if it has full Windows 8 I would probably consider getting one for my doujin games. Even easier than switching my Mac to Bootcamp Windows 7 and plugging it in to my TV.

It's not like there isn't precedent for it too. Some of Dreamcast's bits ran on Windows CE.
