Hint of 360 Games being playable on windows found in developer code

What would be awesome? Halo Reach on pc!
Microsoft has been very open wth it’s plans to enable xbox live for windows 8, but in a new code snippet from windows 8 they found this hint of actuall console games being playable on pc. “XBOX_360_SYSTEM_CRASH” was found in the kernel code — an odd bit of text to show up in software that’s not designed to run on the 360’s PowerPC CPU.
Maybe it’s just some kind of ability to control the 360 from your pc (like remote play for ps3) or maybe it means console gaming on a pc!
