@jakkblades: I don't, not anymore. In fact I've been buying more old consoles to collect. But I also believe that retro games should be as available as possible. If old games can be offered for download on current consoles, or similar formats like discs be playable on current consoles, that makes it easier for anyone to play old games. It's better when games are playable on hardware you already own, than stuff you'd have to find second-hand or pull from a closet. Backwards compatibility, and services like Virtual Console make the old stuff easy to access and enjoy, and I'd like those sorts of things to be supported to the fullest.

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.

I would seriously like another Viva Pinata game.

Let's Tap is a classic. I've watched it maybe five times.
