Someone should do this for the xbox. Call it the PCX.

Later edit:
If you do this we could still use our xbox hand held wireless controllers (which I like), run our pc games and download all the mods we like, have our own common update support for everyone, and best of all, being non-propierty, they won't be able to screw us like on Oblivion and we can mod out the lousy ending of Fallout3.
