I'll get back to you when I actually get a hold of the system for a more factual list.

I could speculate sure but theorycrafting and conjecture doesn't provide for a healthy discussion.
If history is to change, let it change. If the world is to be destroyed, so be it. If my fate is to die, I must simply laugh.

-For price, better online than XBL.

Cons:
-No GameCube backwards compatibility.
-Will likely be weaker than 720 & PS4.
-Small internal memory.
-Online still not comparable to PSN.
-Only supports 2 GamePads.
