At the very least I want to see a practical length controller cord and some kind of shortcut command to quickly return to the main menu (something as simple as pressing Start and Select at the same time).

I really hope Nintendo gives this console the absolute respect it deserves–because this really could end up being something genuinely very special indeed.
