Me?

Hardware:

-No over-heating or RROD-esque problems (obv.)
-Wi-fi built in
-Bigger HDD and the ability to accept non Msoft HDs
-HD-Drive built in
-Controller built in memory to store a few saves, screenshots and settings

Software:

-Universal screenshot feature

-Xbox live subscription still paid, though far more features to make up for it. Actual dedicated servers and only expanison packs are paid for, everything else is paid with your gamerscore, though nothing is deducted off your gamerscore on your gamertag. For example, if you buy the Viva Pinata theme which is 150 points and your gamerscore is 1000, you have 850 points left to spend in marketplace though the score on your gamer tag is still 1000.

-More HD content on Xbox Live marketplace.

-Another blade which is a social network were people can blog about games, share opinions on games, rate games out of 10 and show screenshots and comment on them.

-Downloadable xbox 360 games

-Awarded actual physical badges for obtaining a certain amount of achievements or a certain achievment

-Internet browser

-Built in email client

-Achievments in demos and achievments for the xbox 360 / profile. For example, achievements for listening to a whole album in one go or having over 50 played games

-Album art display in gamer tag

    I don't even want them to be hosting dedicated servers, I just want them to put generic code in the SDK that would allow the devs to easily allow US (the gamers who want to host dedicated servers, much like how PC games have been for the last 10 years or so) to use a 360 as a dedicated server. Some games have this option, but only because the devs coded it themselves. Having it directly in the SDK, there would be no reason not to include that feature.

    That was just a bad call on their part. I agree with acidlacedpenguin, they should allow 360s to host dedicated servers but on top of that the game companies should suck it up and host dedicated servers on the network. That would probably require some kind of deal with Microsoft so they could have it at their DC though, would it not?

    HDD standard (and use a removable 2.5" drive that can be user-upgradeable)
    Next-gen optical disk for more storage
    Wifi built in
    Controller memory would be cool to store your gamertag and preferences for games (maybe even some arcade games)
    Some sort of motion detection in the controller. Allow for things like racing games with tilt-control without a steering wheel. (traditional control and wheels still available however)

    Live:
    I agree with OP. Stuff like theme packs and things like that should be able to be paid for with gamerscore or some other achievable/earnable point system. Charge money for real stuff like games and DLC.

    Change your gametag Live subscription to a console account. So your console is subscribed to live and any gamertags loaded onto that console have access to Live for families and no matter who is playing gets to use the DLC or arcade games.

    A "rate this game" system would be pretty cool, but it would have to have been played with your gamertag account and it would take your score and balance it out according to how many hours you've put into it. (1 out of 5 score? well, you only played it for 10 minutes, so we aren't going to make your rating worth as much as the 5 out of 5 score someone gave it who played it for 3 days straight.) Have a list of what games are rated top as well.


    And are we seriously talking about this already? :D

    A few points I really couldn't resist:
    the ability to accept non Msoft HDs

    The purpose of consoles is standardization. I don't want developers to have to worry about making their game compatible with the various types of HDDs some one might have; I want that time spent on making the game itself.
    -Controller built in memory to store a few saves, screenshots and settings

    Why? Just save the stuff on your HDD. Flash memory in the controller is just going to make it more expensive.
    -Another blade which is a social network were people can blog about games, share opinions on games, rate games out of 10 and show screenshots and comment on them.

    We don't need an internet proxy on the system. You can already do all of this on the internet, it is really just a waste of resources to add it in to the system.
    -Awarded actual physical badges for obtaining a certain amount of achievements or a certain achievment

    Again, this is just stupid beyond words. If you feel the need to prove yourself in this way, I feel sorry for you.
    -Built in email client

    Again, you can do this on your PC. Messaging other folks on the 360 is great, because it serves a real purpose, but there is no reason why you need to waste system resources by running Outlook.
    -Achievments in demos and achievments for the xbox 360 / profile. For example, achievements for listening to a whole album in one go or having over 50 played games

    Why? I'd think it's more sad that anything if I saw some one had gone and gotten the "dashboard achievements." I mean, do you really have NOTHING better to do?

    Besides support for dedicated servers I would like to see two things;

    Automatic online backups for save games. This would probably have to be a premium feature.

    Virtual scratch repair. This would have quite a few legal and technological hurdles. Basically they would have copies of all games online, and it would allow you to download chunks of data automatically to replace data lost when discs are scratched. Basically when you would usually get a disc read error, it would download it online and save it to a hard drive. Whenever the game requests the bad sectors in the future you will get the data from the hard drive. A scratch would no longer ruin your game. It would only cause the game to pause once for a couple minutes.
