I'm a preservationist. I'd like to see everything supported through some sort of compatibility, but I know that can be difficult or not a high priority for the big platform-holders.

Lots of rumory stuff. I hope the game-locking system doesn't pan out; it didn't even when it was proposed for PS3. It'd be nice to see download games priced a good bit cheaper than discs, though I wouldn't bet on it. Though that really would help end used-game sales and send more money to publishers. Whatever...I want to see games and features before calling it.
First concert was Big Bad Voodooo Daddy in 1999; since then I've seen Garbage, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Reel Big Fish, Amy Winehouse, Lenny Kravitz, Metallica, Mastodon, Dethklok, Killswitch Engage, Disturbed, and James Brown. Pluss some smaller stuff like The Slip and Graveyard BBQ.
I've bought and abandoned a lot of XBLA games, but I could say the same for discs. But I could call a few XBLA games out as some of the best experiences I've had on the system, and I've considered a few as my games of the year. Shadow Complex, Limbo, Braid, Super Meat Boy, Castle Crashers, Pac Man CEDX...amazing stuff. That goes for PSN games too; Super Stardust HD, Trash Panic, and most of the PixelJunk games are great, and as balls-out-crazy as it was, Noby Noby Boy had some interesting things going on.
The Kinect stuff isn't even the best part of the new dashboard. It's not pervasive through everything on Xbox, it still has limited functionality in Netflix and Hulu, and it's not the best way to control the dash. The voice commands are cool, but motion is still kinda janked. I don't blame the guys for not making it the focus of the video.
