Hopefully they get rid of the requirement of discs to play the game (even if you copy the game to the hard drive today, you still need to insert the dic to play the game, I think). Or maybe they could require the discs, but do so wirelessly (i.e., if the disc is resting happily in a spindle within a few hundred feet, the system can detect that and allow the game to play from the hard drive). I wouldn't want network activation unless there is a high limit on the number of systems a game can be installed on (say, 10, and it resets every year).
 
And while I'm at it, an SSD rather than an HDD would be nice. Hopefully for a price that isn't 5x the typical market price.
