I am glad that includes support for physical games, as this was a point that i was worried about after the release of the Xbox One SAD (what a fitting name lol). however, as someone who REALLY loved the Xbox 360, Microsoft's performance this gen really disappointed me, so i will certainly not buy one until either it has many "must have" (for me) exclusives or it gets hacked like the 360. hopefully both happen.

Also, i was EXTREMELY disappointed that MS didnt announce Fable 4. After all the rumors and hype. :(
