A blog post by Voodoo PC founder Rahul Sood relates a rumor that Microsoft was working on a program that would offer PC versus Xbox 360 gameplay, expanding on the cross-platform play of Shadowrun. According to his sources, in spite of pitting top-level console players with controllers against "mediocre" PC gamers using keyboards and mice, the "console players got destroyed every time. So much so that it would be embarrassing to the XBOX team in general had Microsoft launched this initiative." This leads him to draw a rueful conclusion: "..had they allowed something like this to take place then perhaps the desire to have the best platform would still be there. Perhaps the scale of the PC would have allowed Microsoft to get away from the hardware business and focus on their core, software. Perhaps we could have finally integrated the XBOX into the PC..." Since that didn't happen, he goes on to offer some opinions on the future of PC gaming, encouraging developers to develop for webOS. Thanks Gizmodo.
