Windows 7: Full integration with Xbox 360...

Full integration with Xbox 360...

I have been a life long PC gamer, but unfortunately for me, console gamers have been getting more attention lately (I'm look at you Halo 3, ODST, and Reach). I am reluctant to go out and buy an Xbox 360 because I don't like the feel of the controller and also because I already have a high powered desktop to game with. My question is this: Is there any way to integrate a 360 with a Windows 7 machine so that I could literally go to my start menu and turn on my 360 and start gaming on it from my computer?. I think I saw something like this ( Origin PC's Big O desktop: half gaming PC, half Xbox 360, all muscle -- Engadget ), but I want to stuff the 360 into my existing machine and fully integrate the two machines.

Not possible.

That PC linked in the pic has the 360 built into the same case as the PC, but it's still 'separate'.

Unfortunately you can't open the 360 like it's an app.

I suppose the problem would be "How do you get the PC and the 360 to communicate fast enough?" The fastest throughput I have on any of the ports on my desktop is the 3Gb/s I get from the eSATA. If I get a little more into my studies of Computer Engineering, this is something I would like to try. The best I can do right now is wait for someone to make a refined emulator. There is plenty of processing power to run the stuff a 360 needs to do. The problem is the code to emulate has to be tuned to execute efficiently.
