Windows 8 may support Xbox 360 games

Starting to wonder what the point of having a 360 is if this turns out to be true. There's evidence to back it up as well, which was spotted after a Windows 8 kernel was leaked online, specifically showing error codes such as "XBOX_360_SYSTEM_CRASH" and "XBOX_360_SYSTEM_CRASH_RESERVED". There's also the plan to merge Xbox Live and Games For Windows Live services, which might be a sign of things to come.

Then again, I do wonder why they would bother since Windows 8 is looking like it'll be out near the end of next year and at that point, the Xbox 360 will be 7 years old and probably waning. Maybe they also plan to include support for the currently unannounced successor too, which would make sense but that's just me speculating.
