The big thing for me is getting the online play fixed and with little to no lag. I'm a big MP gamer and I need my online play to run smooth.

In response to the list, they "improved" the pitching mechanics, but in the few videos I've seen they seem to have dumbed it down. I'm a huge fan of the 2k8 pitching mechanic and hope it remains largely the same.
