Backwards compatibility is better than all of those, but I chose Shenmue from those options. I'd take a new Blinx and RPG development team too. The rest, meh. On the VR thing, I'd rather MS just work with Facebook/Occulus and not waste time reinventing the wheel. Occulus team has already considered every angle of the VR experience, I don't think MS (or Sony for that matter) have anything to add above and beyond Rift (though I hope Morpheus is competitive still).
For all intensive porpoises, I could care less about those choices as non of those peak my interest, but if I had to choose a pacific option, I'd defiantly go with the last gen wheel compatibility, or a new Burnout game... probably the ladder.
I'd say the VR but Microsoft isn't known for taking risks so I say the date should be around 2016. They'll see if it picks up an if it does, then they'll work on VR. Similar to motion control (Kinect), similar to everything they do. Microsoft likes to sit around and let others do something and if it takes off, they just steal it
