Now that Tobi has been unmasked, and there is officially another living Uchiha besides Sasuke, will Orochimaru continue to focus all his hopes on dreams on Sasuke?
From what Kabuto said during his fight with Itachi and Sasuke, it would seem that Orochimaru was interested in becoming the next So6P. Wouldn't Obito's body be far more tempting to Orochimaru, since Obito is an Uchiha who already has Hashirama's cells (another thing Orochimaru was interested in) and a Rinnegan on top of it all?
Depends on the power levels. It's highly probable his target was Sasuke just because Itachi would be a lot more tougher to defeat (if he could, of course).
After his ninjutsu were sealed away, Orochimaru didn't have the power to deal with Itachi, so, he tried to get Sasuke through manipulation.
Now, if he ever comes back to his full power somehow, he'll be definitely targeting either Uchiha.
There is no way in hell Orochimaru can take on Rinnegan Obito. Madara having his back means that Orochimaru is just a fly. Sasuke himself would trash Oro so bad its not even funny (asuming Kishi does not end up giving Oro some boost somehow).
But i have to say. Orochimaru is the only REAL vilain this manga got to show us. The most of the rest just whant peace (more or less) but with some insane ways. Even Madara himself (from what we know) he wants to create a paradise world.

I don't think Orochimaru has the power to approach Obito and take over his body.
But who know he could something unexpected and become the true final boss of the manga, like it should be.
I can't think of a better punishment for Obito, a simple death or execution could never make up for what he did to his own clan, but spending an eternity being molested by Orochimaru would be a good start.
@xXan I agree, it was my yearning for Orochimaru to reclaim his title as head villain that led me to think of this possibility. It would make my day if Sasuke and Naruto got to team up against the only real villain in this manga just one more time before the story ends. Unfortunately, Orochimaru would need a serious power up to be able to contend with even one of them as they are now, which is why I think he needs to absorb an Uchiha somehow.
kishi has already made it pretty clear he wants sasuke's body. for him to change his mind would be too much for the story as he is already dealing with kakashi and what not.
why would oro aim for obito when his creation >"madara uchiha reloaded" is right there...infinite chakra...infinte regeneration...max evolved sharingan/rinnengan...and hashirama's DNA...what more would that guy ask for ?? ...i still suspect oro left something in madaras body as a loophole by which he can takeover him... i mean why would he make madara's body perfect if he can't even control it... maybe it was his plan to make perfect hybrid body so that he can find an eternal container for his soul
also plotwise only Orochimaru is the TRUE villian in naruto...he is far far more evil than emochihas or danzo or anyone else and that too without any reason ....he is just EVIL(in naruto world) ...does not need a reason to be evil like anyone else in manga...

At this point, even if he regain his full power, he is no match for even Sasuke. The only reason he defeated the 3rd hokage was because he was old. 20 years younger, the sandaime would have destroyed him.
Really, Orochimaru, Jiraiya and Tsunade are seriously overestimated, they're all very weak, now none of them can even touch Naruto or Sasuke.
Oro's a pedo. No way he's gonna take somebody in his 30's when he has a better choice ie. Sasugay... Ok, seriously Oro's had his eyes on Sasugay since Part 1, so I don't think he'll switch to somebody else for now..
He is going to aim at Sasuke because Madara or Obito are you of his league (Sasuke himself is but its closer). You can be damn sure Orochimaru would whant a rinnegan over EMS only Sasuke... Rinnegan is the big dady of all jutsus and allows you to use all afinities. Imagine taking over Madara and having EMS + Rinnegan... Now that would make him a broken dude.
I'm not sure if Orochimaru's body possession would work on an ET, and if Sasuke's hatred could stop Orochimaru from possessing him, then surely Madara's could as well right?
I picked Obito because he had already has his resolve broken, and doesn't care about anything anymore, so I think Orochimaru could probably overpower his mind. He would probably give his body to Orochimaru if Orochimaru offered to bring Rin back to life. (Even though he should be able to do that himself now)
