    So... just checking..

    Does this mean that I can go and own my friends who play GTA online with a 360?

    I don't understand what the article is saying...

    It's saying it will work with windows Live, which can interact with 360 Live.

    So you should be able to see your friends and such when they're online, even if you're in windows and they are on their xbox.

    It appears that one of the goals of this live thing, is that in the end, windows users will be able to play against xbox players, and people are hoping GTA IV will be supporting this cross platform multipler.

    From what I've been reading it's all rumours though.

    mediaboy, a Games for Windows Live-branded title provides the following common features:

    Support for an Xbox Live gamertag
    Support for Xbox Live friends list
    Support for Xbox Live achievements

    In some games, there will also be cross-platform multiplayer. That hasn't been confirmed for GTA IV, but if it does happen, you would be able go and own your friends who play GTA online with a 360.

    ... and 'games for windows' multiplayer is free, you don't have to pay to play your friends.
    What we share with everyone is glum, and dark...
