Not specifically Xbox related, but what they sorely need to fix is the security system for your Live account/hotmail etc. I had significant problems last year trying to access the email address attached to my Gamertag because I couldn't remember my password, and the security details provided were over 10 years old, and I'd never needed to use them. The email address is a dead email, I only use it for my gamertag, so I had no recent activity to report to prove it was my own email address. I managed to get everything sorted out in the end, but on the 360, you use this email address and can choose auto sign in, meaning you never input your password. With the next gen coming up, we can assume that we will need to transfer our gamertag and all these details across to the new console, meaning we'll need to know our security details. Considering how screwed up their system is, there is the potential for a lot of people struggling to transfer their gamer tag across.
Also, though we won't be able to see it happen, they seriously need to work on making the hardware better and more resilient than the 360 which, lets face it, is pretty damn shoddy. In every previous generation I've had 1 console, only ever buying a 2nd if I wanted to upgrade in someway (I bough a PS slim with screen for example), I never NEEDED to buy another one because my current one died. I think I'm on my 4th Xbox 360 atm. I don't think people will tolerate that sort of crap a 2nd generation running.
Also, Skype integration NOW please, and this is key, make it so I can use Skype with people on PC etc as right now I use my laptop for it, which is fine, but I use my laptop for Skype whilst also gaming on my 360.
Whilst we're at it, please improve the quality of the headphones and particularly the wires which are frail as hell. I'd also love for IE to be implemented better, rather than being something I have to quit my game to load up, let it be a web browser within my game. I'm not saying every game should instill a web browsing animation, but let me call up IE from the guide button and use it whilst my game is still running if I need to. Again, right now I use a laptop for this, but it would be nice to just be able to do everything I need to via my Xbox.
