How about announcing some games for the damn thing.

Don't get me wrong, reading the comments of some of these developers has really got me exited for what Natal can bring to the table, but c'mon we need to hear some details of these projects in development.

They want to re-launch the entire console with the backing of natal and halo reach so likely wont see much of either until about 6 months prior to the release ~fall next year.

MS wants to make it huge, and if there's one thing MS knows how to do is market, sell and make things huge. (xbox controller joke fyi :P)
