    There might be a 4th competitor in the next-gen console marathon - the good old PC.

    Not actualy a console, I agree.But a worthy opponent to PS3, Xbox360 and Nintendo Revolution, if we are to believe Microsoft group manager Chris Donohue who said: "We’re putting the 'game' back in Windows (...) We’re over the hump with Xbox 360 so now ready to build Windows as a platform".

    Microsoft seems to realise that it has been killing PC gaming due to its lack of support for the platform.Furthermore they are launching a 18 month campaign where they will try to "put the game in Windows".

    The company will promote cross-platform compatibility with peripherals that will work on both the Xbox 360 and the PC and game publishers jumping on the bandwagon to place the "Games for Windows" logo on PC games in much the same way as console games are currently branded.

    So, the PC where it all began may not be dead yet.
