Xbox Live Confirmed to be in Windows 8

Microsoft confirmed yesterday at their BUILD conference that Xbox Live will indeed be coming to the PC market via Windows 8.  XBL on Windows will function nearly the same as it does on the Xbox 360.  They did not confirm if XBL on Windows will allow for cross-platform gaming, but I’d imagine that will be a must have feature for it to succeed.  All this really means for me is that I may have to start getting into PC gaming now that I can gain some gamerscore from an outlet I have yet to tap.  So far I must say that I’m digging Windows 8, but it’s going to take more than Xbox Live to get me to give up my MacBook Pro.  Check out a screenshot of XBL on Windows 8 below.  You’ve been thinking MS may have their best OS yet in Windows 8…
