uh, hi.
I don't know who "they" are, but that info is mostly wrong.

What Windows 8 will do is to more prominently feature "Xbox Live" as a gaming brand.
Windows-powered mobile phones have featured "Xbox Live" for a while now, and so will Windows 8.

This means that the "Xbox Live" portion of Windows 8 will use the same achievement system that Xbox, Windows Phone and Games for Windows Live already use (e.g. a game you recently played on Xbox will show up in your account on the pc, and vice versa).
You can already see something like this in the official "my xbox live" apps for iOS and Android as well. They log in to Xbox Live and show you a list of recently played games, amongst other things.

Some Xbox Live arcade games will be ported to Windows 8, like for example Hydro Thunder Hurricane.

As for pheripherals (controllers, etc), they've been working on Windows for a long time.

Perhaps MS will also completely retire the Games for Windows and Zune brands. I wouldn't be surprised, anyway.

However, you won't be able to play xbox 360 game discs on your pc.

"xbox" is the brand, "xbox 360" is the console, and "xbox live" is the service. They're separate things. "xbox 360" won't be available on Windows, "xbox live" will.
