are you sure? i think if you do an account recovery you can go from a 360 to xbox.
you can go xbox to 360 but not back again, once you recover your live account to the 360 its locked there you can not go back to the xbox.
it prevents people from going abck and forth back and forth.
the question remains can you be logged in on your xbox and Vista at the same time.
the importance of that is hosting games.
anyone who has hosted a 16 player match on RB 6 Vegas knows what i am talking about. hosting a 16 player match on the 360 is tasking. the game is laggy and jumpy. not internet lag but graphics and cpu lag as its trying to handle everything.
i would host a game on my pc and let it run and then play on my 360.
or run a dedicated server on the pc and play the xbox. and vise versa.
the advantage will ALWAYS go to the pc player when playing a FPS. sing a mouse and keyboard is 1005 more accurate.
the controller doesnt give you the finite controls when aiming that a mouse does.
i like the idea of cross platform gaming but ... it has its disadvantages.
also what about creating trainers like they have in the past for Counter Strike, and Medal of Honor.
headshots galor on the pc but zero on the 360..
anti fog hacks on the pc none on the 360..
see where i am going with this.
(lastly i would love to know wtf is up with this forum and it posting my paragraphs with triple and quadruple spacing. god its pissing me off. i have to go back and edit every post i make.)
i think the cross platform games are going to be limited for such reasons.
