Xbox.com E3 Wish List

Xbox.com is posting some E3 coverage of its own to try to keep the spotlight on Microsoft during the expo. The article "Your E3 Wish List" has got me thinking. Will we see all of the items mentioned in this post during the show? A lot of these have been rumored, and others have been "confirmed," but I find it interesting that all of this would be mentioned by an "official" source.

Are these purely musings of the Xbox.com forum crowd, or is a teaser for what we should expect in the coming days?

Game info:
  • Halo 3
  • Gears of War
  • Huxley
  • NCAA Football
  • Dead Rising
  • Unreal Tournament 2007 (!)
  • Viva Piñata
XBLA:
  • Dreamcast game library
  • Retro XBLA titles like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Golden Axe or Double Dragon
Hardware:
  • Xbox 360 camera
  • HD-DVD add-on
  • Wireless headset
  • Larger capacity hard drive
  • Is MS making a handheld?
Xbox Dashboard Upgrades:
  • DirecTV blade
  • Increased friends list capacity
  • Dashboard integration with Xbox.com forums
  • MSN Messenger-like interface in the dashboard (this one was highlighted in the post)
Update: Yeah. Pretty much all of the above was talked about save for UT2007, Dreamcast XBLA titles, the larger HD and handheld. DirecTV wasn't mentioned as far as I can tell either. Of course, I wasn't there, so I wasn't privyy to any backroom conversations. Then again, I probably wouldn't be privyy to those conversations even if I was there.
