The news that Tekken 6 will be headed to the system. Big XBLA titles in the pipe like Metal Slug and a Space Invaders remake. But the thing that really hits at the core of what it's like to be an Xbox 360 gamer – something that not enough Japanese gamers are enjoying – is the redesign of the Xbox Live interface.
