Could Microsoft Make An Xbox/PC Hybrid?

Microsoft has been using a Californian market research group to conduct studies into the consumer appeal of a hybrid Xbox and PC gaming device, according to CNN/Money’s latest Game Over column.

The “Xbox Next PC” device, reportedly trailed by the B/R/S Group in focus group sessions, would be compatible with current and next generation Xbox software, PC games and multiplayer gaming service Xbox Live – and would include Windows, a CD burner, a DVD player (with remote control), as well as a hard disk and standard Xbox controller. It would operate through a PC monitor or high definition television and retail for $599.
