As far as an always online console though, I don't see any reason for it at all. What's the advantage?
People who have access to the various store items and services are statistically much more likely to spend money. There's also the whole blocking of used games issue which is the result of lobbying from big-name publishers, and would require an internet connection most likely. It's a very anti-consumer vision that's going to bite them in the ass if they really go through with it. Can't wait to see how they spin it lol.
EDIT: The date of the event was delayed by the way. It's apparently been pushed back to May 21st.
