Man, I've been entrenched in minecraft lately, been playing Feed-the-Beast private server with 7 other people. Its great fun.

Remember 1 vs. 100 on XBLA? Every day there was a live show hosted by a human. I see AAAA shooters moving in that direction. Daily challenges narrated by a host, somehow. Faction based roleplay elements ("100k Red and Blue players battled it out last night, and the Reds took control of the region and won a new perk"). Some kind of combination of soap opera, game show, and sporting event.
Can we reflect for a moment on how amazing 1 vs. 100 was? That would definitely cause me to go back to my xbox. It was also the perfect family game. All in all I had so much fun playing that with my family every night. It was fantastic. One of my top "games" that I want to see come back.
We actually just recently started talking about black holes in my astronomy class and I got the exact same craving! I've been looking for books, too, but more specifically non-fiction books on black holes...especially since they defy a lot of our current scientific understanding, and it almost seems like you're reading fiction. I'm thinking I might get Death by Black Hole: And Other Cosmic Quandaries since Neil deGrasse Tyson is a very awesome man (note, haven't read it myself, but I'm sure it's good). The book isn't just about black holes, but all astronomy is pretty fascinating.
I know you're not looking for games, and before this semester I would have recommended Solar 2, but my astronomy class sort of ruined that game for me (because of its inaccuracies) >__<...but it does have black holes in it.
A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking is a fantastic piece of non-fiction work with everything between the Big Bang and Black Holes. Definitely worth a read for any space nut out there.

@murisan: One way trip.
The mental image of a casket with rockets en route to the sun is starting to motivate me to make it big.
And this is why Giantbomb wins all of my internets
