THE BUZZ: Microsoft announced that Xbox Live will be integrated into the Windows 8 operating system, due for release in 2012.

Xbox Live’s Larry Hyrb (Major Nelson) announced the inclusion on his blog. He didn’t share too many details about the service only mentioning that it will bring “your games, music, movies, and TV shows to your favorite Microsoft and Windows devices.” There isn’t much else to go on at the moment, but it was said that they, “have much more detail to share about the capabilities of Xbox LIVE on Windows and look forward to the opportunity to do so in the near future.”

EGM’s TAKE: Hopefully Microsoft can emulate the success that Xbox Live has had on consoles. Could this be the much needed adrenaline shot that Games for Windows Live needs?

How do you feel about Xbox Live coming to PCs?
