Welcome to Coffee Talk! Let’s start off the day by discussing whatever is on your (nerd chic) mind. Every morning I’ll kick off a discussion and I’m counting on you to participate in it. If you’re not feelin’ my topic, feel free to start a chat with your fellow readers and see where it takes you. Whether you’re talking about videogames, the fantastic execution of the San Antonio Spurs, Serena Williams’ first round-one loss at a grand slam, or getting pastrami with a Korean chick, Coffee Talk is the place to do it.

With E3 2012 right around the corner, I wanted get your take on the big three console companies. Today, let’s talk about Microsoft and the Xbox 360. Obviously Halo 4 is going to be a huge part of the show and Microsoft appears keen on making the Xbox 360 much more than a videogame console. What do you expect from Microsoft at this year’s show? What are you hoping for? Is there anything you don’t want the company to do? Click the Adam Lambert song below, give it some thought, and leave your Microsoft E3 2012 wishes/predictions/dreams in the comments section (please!).

    I'm not going to get what I want, which is some new ideas for exclusive games, and/or news about next gen. More likely it's going to be all about their dashboard and how they're going to be the "full entertainment system," while promoting Kinect and a bunch of 3rd party titles.

      I'm going to start calling you "Matt Pachter" from now on.

        I wish one of us had Pachter money.

          Seriously, I whiffed on this one with the Gears of War GI cover coming out today. That being said, I'm glad I whiffed on it. I love me some Gears.

          Yeah, Pachter money would be great. I'd be a professional guesser for 6 digits a year. Who wouldn't?

    I wanna hear more about a new Fable game. I've heard there's one in development, but that's all I've heard.

    • raymond padilla

      You mean Fable Heroes?

      • N8R

        No… I mean Fable 4.

  • Thundercracker

    I want to start hearing about new consoles.

  • Smartguy

    I'd like to hear about how the dashboard UI will cease being obnoxious with ads and take less time to navigate without shelling out money for Kinect.

    • N8R

      Bumper buttons.

  • BigBlak

    Far Cry 3 and Borderlands 2!
