You can do the same thing with a PC all you need is a long hdmi cable and a wireless keyboard&mouse only thing is with a PC you don't have to wait years for an upgrade in fact if you don't upgrade it will kill your ability to play the best games. Ps if you have a stock PC and you call it decent most if not all PC gamers will laugh at you unless its a new alienware laptop and then thats only for gaming on the run or away from the house.
Boycott Microsoft Products!
After 35 years in "information technology" I am thankfully Microsoft free.
Freedom is a good thing, regardless of what the TPTB sez.

Heh, heh, heh...... "almost have to be using Linux"!
I'm not taking the bait but I will state that there are other open operating systems besides Linux.
Most of the operating systems I worked on in my professional career aren't known by members of the general public.

Even though I'm a fan of the xbox 360, it's totally true that if Microsoft or any other company decides it would be a "good" idea to require an internet connection to play any games, or use any software, will fail.
However, I think there are a lot better examples for this than simply sitting down to play a video game, such as Microsoft's Skydrive that they're trying to promote.
If something happens to their servers, all kinds of problems can result from something like this, not just losing your data. The first time I heard about it was from a friend who teaches at a college in IT.
She told me how she had attempted to have the students in her class upload all of their assignments to her Skydrive.
When she couldn't gain access to it before class one day, Microsoft's customer service made her give them all kinds of personal information to verify who she was as a "security precaution".
This brings up a whole other world of discussion....

Stick to PC gaming, consoles are a CON.
Every serious gamer I've ever met uses a PC.
Just to add more to this story..
There were rumours about the consoles from ms being so powerful that using the TWO forward pointing cameras they (ms) can use software that can lip read, recognize faces, and count how many people are in the room, and record your conversations.
And now we learn they want the darn thing ALWAYS ON! No prizes for guessing why
