Microsoft considering PC-Xbox hybrid

— 10:50 AM on May 27, 2004

Chris Morris at CNN/Money has a heckuva scoop today on Microsoft's possible plans to merge the Xbox and PC gaming platforms:

Two months ago, Microsoft spoke glowingly of bridging the gap between the PC and Xbox. Now the company is considering erasing that gap completely.

While Microsoft has publicly avoided discussing its next generation machine, it has been quietly conducting studies on the consumer appeal of a hybrid device that would play both PC and Xbox games.

Will it happen? Hard to say, but there are enough details in this report to make it sound very possible. The PC seems to be making a play for the One Platform to Rule Them All, and with Microsoft's involvement, it may become destiny.
