    Wow thats quite a list of changes, sounds very good what is planned, and some useful things being added.

    Option to delete titles from gamercard with 0 gamerscore and 0 achievements (excludes some titles that will be re-added to launch another title).

    ^^ Best change mentioned in the list, I get annoyed having to scroll through my games list and go past games which I downloaded as demo's

    I'd like the option when deleting games to include the Gamerscore & Achievements if i so wish. I hate it that i have 55 points from GTAIV on my card when i can't stand the games

    Still rumours about at the moment. But could still be a while considering how long it took the 'Fall' update to get released.

    I really like the idea of Support for games to install stuff in HDD for faster load. PS3 has this . It's high time Microsoft implemented this

    Is that so.. I thought the general opinion was that it loads faster in PS3. Reviews of all games seems to point at that. Personally I dont mind a bit of installation (taken a step into the console world currently)

    About time! Sometimes me and my mates start a lobby on COD4 or C&C3 just to talk. Most of the time however we just start freemode on GTA4... Multitasking, kill and talk lol

    The other option that I like is the ability to sign in appearing offline. Now I can watch a movie without someone realising that I had just changed to appearing offline.
