Microsoft could design a new Xbox that operate with Windows 8

One of the products Microsoft has had more success, and almost without interruption, is your console Xbox 360 has enjoyed since the start of a high acceptance by users, for example, its online services. Kinect has been another of the great strengths of this console and, in fact, this component has crossed the boundaries of electronic entertainment and has become the basis of multiple research and development projects at prestigious universities around the world. 

Microsoft wants to bring the world of console to PC and much more, apparently, Windows 8 could be the link since the Redmond company could work next year on an Xbox running Windows 8 in 2012 (which could be launched in 2014).

If this console is an updated version of the Xbox 360 or a completely new console is something that is not yet clear and are voices both ways, but regardless of this, the chances of that union (Xbox and Windows 8) could be quite interesting . 

In fact, during the past Build, Microsoft revealed plans to include the Xbox Live service on Windows 8, which would allow PC users could compete against Xbox multiplayer games, which could even be extended to Windows users Phone and grouped under one umbrella to all users of their platforms. From a business perspective, Microsoft's strategy is very accurate and Windows 8 will play an integral role quite powerful.

Conversely, Xbox 360 also begin to see some aspects close to Windows 8. For starters, the interface of Windows 8 Metro, ie widgets panel is something that will be distributed as an update on 6 December (but has already begun to be tested in beta mode for some users).

If we add the company's intentions to include YouTube and Bing inside the Xbox, the console's approach to other types of services makes us understand much more of this convergence of platforms in which, thanks to Kinect users Xbox can search content by using the voice recognition feature.

Personally, the convergence of platforms that Microsoft is considering, which would increase much more with Windows 8, I think a very interesting strategy to maximize the use of their services and increase the scope of its own ecosystem. Applying the popular expression that says that "leisure is business", in the case of Microsoft, its new operating system could carry far more niche markets that the original PC
