More X360 stuff...

Having had a little more time to digest what's out there presently, here's my Likes and Dislikes about the system:

All games support HD (720p and/or 1080i), 16x9, and 5.1 Surround
All games Xbox Live Aware
Wireless controllers that recharge through the console
Removeable/upgradable 20GB HDD
"Ring of Light" button on controllers to instantly access the dashboard to receive game invites, e-mail, etc.
WiFi ready

Well, my only real dislikes at the moment are actually "unknowns".

Price point (hopefully the base unit launches at no more than the $299 the original Xbox did)
Release date (I want it NOW)
Backwards compatibility (I don't care if it is or isn't compatible with previous Xbox software, just tell us already)

Hopefully we'll get the answers to some of those questions next week, but I've heard the Microsoft doesn't intend to announce the release date or price at E3. Bastards.
