Microsoft had several Xbox One demo stations in E3 for the wide public. But now it seems the Xbox Ones - were in fact - Windows 7 PCs equipped with Nvidia GeForce graphics cards and Xbox One controllers.

Update: Galit Motai, PR Manager at Microsoft Israel, has sent us a response on this story. "We have a variety of development kit form functions for different applications, including ones that resemble PCs. At this point - months ahead of launch - our team and our partners are focused on building the best available games and entertainment experiences, not on the physical appearance of the kits. Between now and launch you may see a variety of different physical "shells" that really have no bearing on what's running inside."

also a windows 7 box, is cheaper than an Xbox one, and we all pretty much have one, so why do people buy consoles...Once they stop buying crap we can start getting more dev on the real platform.

You didn't report the entire story... this was only one station showing games by Twisted Pixel Games Studio. Michael Wilford, studio director of the company said on his twitter account that the hardware running his game at the show was the decision of his company.

They of course would have more then only one screen demoing a game for people to use... heck Battlefield 4 had 64 different stations for the thousands of people to wait in line to use... Having only 1 station for a game you'd be there all week trying to play. You can even see at the top left of each monitor the game logo that's also on their twitter and websites background.. their story matches up.

Wait, I though you can not connect a gamepad to a PC? This leaves me perplexed, PCs were supposed to be good for anything but gaming.

Did they have any xbox machines running games?

Looks like the 2nd box isn't a PC. If you meant the PC for the other monitor... :/

Come on now, you know better then that, the ex-box 1 isnt for games its for watching tv, taking your money and spying on you, there may also be a feature that sucks out your soul when you purchase one.

I hope you're kidding. You've been able to hook controllers to computers for over a decade.
