You know..Id love MS to cockslap gamers in the face.....

I dont think they will though.

Heres my thoughts:
MS want to move the machine into being a housing entertainment machine : NOT at being the detriment to being a game console, but being a game console plus extra,

Kinect 2 to be a major thing, with finger tracking and shit being a thing for games (but not that your xbox is watching you wank, or finger yourself ladies)
xbox video/music is now front & center to the xbox interface.. welcome to adverts front & center (theyre not currently)

plenty of premade videos of games to be shown,little actual games.
Maybe some child actors on stage to dance to whatever kinect game they are showing... Expect the child to be out of time... Children always are

What do I want : you know I dont know
What do I expect : better graphics, kinect, streaming entertainment, ghosts

What puts me off : ghosts.

Seeing the hardware running has to happen tomorrow but i think it will be mostly about the hardware and E3 will showcase the games. We'll See the "NEW" COD ha ha yeah right, probably (hopefully) Destiny and a couple of Indy Games. Hope to get some sight of the new Kinect and maybe that illumiroom.

Defiantly more variety in exclusive franchises.

I mean look at Sony compared to Microsoft, they got Killzone, Resistance, Uncharted, and God of War among countless others.

We Xboxers pretty much only got Halo and Gears of War, see the problem?

Quality not quantity mate. Halo, Gears, Fable, Forza, Left for Dead, PGR etc we didn't do badly. The days of console exclusives are nearly over thankfully i can't believe i wont get to play The Last of us on PC or 360

Halo, Gears & Fable are terrible exclusives really, not even in the same league as some of Sony’s more cerebral games (Shadow of the Colossus, ICO, Jouney, Ni no Kuni).

Sony has done well with Indie games you can't seriously be saying Halo and Gears are bad exclusives sales alone dwarf anything Sony have produced, Killzone now there is a dog shit series poor gameplay and pretty average sales. Journey is the current love in with the Games press, i wasn't impressed Limbo is a far superior game imo. All this high art cerebral shit is all well and good but people go mad at MS for leaving the "Core" gamer out then Sony have thrown them down the river with a raft that's burning.
Comparing Halo, Gears etc to Journey is pointless Sales are what matters and nothing holds a candle to Microsofts premier shooters and just to compare how much time have you spent on Halo compare to Journey?

If sales are what matters then COD & FIFA are by your own reckoning the greatest game series known to man.

For me it’s not just about how much time I spend on a game, it’s what I take away from it, Bioshock is my greatest current gen game but it’s not overly long and doesn’t feature any MP. It’s just a perfectly formed package that you can enjoy then move on with good memories.

One of my favourite games so far has been Mass Effect (just don't mention the ending to me). If they built an MMO on this universe, I think it could be quite good.

To answer the original question though, my wish would be to have simply "better" graphics. I'm not bothered about how many polygons there are, or FPS, as long as it looks good. I don't have kinnect, so I'm hoping that doesn't be a requirement just to play games. And I hope we don't end up with some silly screen or touch pad on the controller.

Quality of games isn't solely down to MS is it, but I hope they have a good selection at launch date.

The “good selection at launch” is pure pie in the sky thinking tbh, no console ever has had a good launch line-up. They usually have one “big” first party game and a load of rubbish filler that doesn’t properly use the new hardware.

What are you talking about? That cars with machine guns launch game for the 360 was mint. It was so good in fact, I've repressed all memories of it so I can play it from scratch

Anyway my wish list for tomorrow night looks like this:

Backward compatibility with at least 360 arcade games if not retail as well.
Upgraded Live network so parties donít constantly shit themselves and boot everyone out.
Skype infrastructure taking over Parties so we get decent audio.
Xbox Live Gold changes to match PS+.
Good exclusives. Not more Gears etc.
Show off the hardware, hope it looks sexy and sleek, not like a giant slab of grey.

Big day today, see what happens but I’m not feeling very excited atm I have to admit. Maybe I’ll start feeling a bit more into it as we approach 6.

End of the world today. I'm expecting a cardboard box that connects to other cardboard boxes using cans tied by string.

Just heard a rumour that the new Xbox will make love to your wife behind your back if you leave it in standby mode.
