    Not sure if you guys find this news worthy, but I posted it here anyways :) To be honest, nothing really surprises me at this point with Microsoft :P I even heard that they are sending people out to various BestBuys to convince the people who are there to play Nintendos E3 Game Demos to wait for the Xbone instead... -.-

    Is this really news? I thought most E3 demos ran on pcs behind the scenes.

    Holy crap, it's like MS really doesn't want me to buy their console. I keep on holding onto the fact that Forza is only on XBone so I have to get it. At this rate I may have to skip on my favorite racing game.

    I'd still rather get an X1 over an HP computer. :P

    I hope they add the buttons CTRL, ALT and DEL to the controller

    btw... HP puts Corsair H100i inside their desktops PC? :unsure:
    I can see one in the second pic

    This would be a controversy if they lied at some point, but I don't think such a misdirection was made. I would agree it's misleading and somewhat poor form to demo games with an xbox one controller unless it was explicitly stated it was PC hardware. I do think this is good news that the xbox one controller works well on PC, I want rumble triggers.

    The fact that it's Windows 7 and not Windows 8 worries me more than the fact that the games are running on Windows.

    Two things strike me at this point

    1) I thought this was fairly common.

    2) This is absolutely awful -- I mean it is not like it is similar to the final hardware and MS certainly did not write the underlying libraries, graphics layer or "operating system".

    that's not a HP cpu, it's custom made, HP never uses flashy cases with acrylic windows or Corsair water cooling system.
    in any way, devkits aren't a exact replica of the retail system and can have weird cases, but the hardware need to be the same to ensure perfect compatibility with the retail product.

    You saw DriveClub right? While not Forza it definitively is a solid racing sim.

    At this point, this just adds more fuel to the fire. It doesn't even matter anymore whether this is a common practice or not. Anything that even seems wrong at first glance will hurt Microsoft's rep right now.

    Please, call it a computer and not a CPU. A CPU is but a component of the computer, which HP does not produce.

    Ya I saw it, I also saw the Crew which is another good racing game, but Forza is special to me. It's an excellent sim with amazing tuning and it has an excellent decal editor. I had so much fun making paint jobs.
