  1. Lower the price of the MRSP of the Xbox One Wireless Elite Controller. It's way too expensive!

    The Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller is outrageously expensive.
    Neogaf and Reddit are reporting on the ridiculous of the pricing for the MSRP, it should be lowered.

  3. The Elite Xbox One controller should come with a Play and Charge kit

    Was excited to get my hands on this new controller. However $150 dollars and it takes AA batteries to run seems really disappointing. Would prefer it to come with a built in rechargeable battery or a play and charge to come with it.

  4. Xbox One Wireless Headset similar to the one for Xbox 360

    Like the xbox wireless headsets for the 360, we need one for the one. Just chat, no game sound needs to come through like the pro gaming headsets. We need one just like the old headsets.

  5. Trade In Original Controller For The New Controller

    I hear rumors now that Microsoft is planning to launch a new controller at E3 in June . This only new feature that I heard about is a 3.5 mm jack to plug in audio devices which is great . Instead of buying it for $60 ( I don't know the price just assuming ) why not let us trade in our old controllers for this updated one that you are unveiling at E3. I mean you guys should have added this in the first place . The first controller had a lot of users reporting problems of either left…

  8. Update WiFi firmware for 802.11ac usage

    A recent teardown of the Xbox One revealed that the wifi chipset could also utilize 802.11ac modulation. With many players buying new routers that support 802.11ac, It would be of utmost importance to allow this feature to be used on the X1. It will provide faster speeds and lower latency than using the current 802.11n.

  9. Connect/charge your iPhone, Android, etc. and listen to music from it

    It would be a good thing to being able to connect your iphone or ipod and listen to music from it like you were able to on the 360 about a few years back

  10. Add HDMI-CEC Support to Xbox One

    Please add HDMI-CEC ("control over HDMI") support for Xbox One to allow proper two-ways communications with TV and AVR (A/V Receiver).

    The issue is that my Xbox One is not the only input on my AVR, and I still use my Xbox 360. This being the case makes using the Kinect to IR blast my components power On/Off completely useless. If I want to switch to my 360 and turn off my One, it would turn off my TV and AVR as well; vise versa if I'm done on the 360 and would like to switch back to the One…

  12. Backward compatibility for wired Xbox 360 controllers on Xbox One

    Provide support for some Xbox 360 accessories like racing wheels and arcade sticks. These accessories are expensive and take space, we cannot be buying one for each generation of console.

  13. USB Microphone and Headset Support

    Well, using a USB microphone or USB headset on the Xbox One and the Xbox 360 would be very nice! I have got the Astro a50 headset (which is wireless) but I have to use the mic cable so it's not wireless anymore... I think MANY people would love this feature :) The drivers are already on the PC and have been there for a LONG time, so please do something with it! It would be easy for everybody! :)

  16. Fix random controller disconnects (Post 1502 Update)

    Still my controllers randomly disconnects mid-game and then immediately reconnects. Game breaking for online gaming. I have bought a new controller for this issue! Everything is updated, batteries are full (normal and rechargeable) and it still randomly disconnects. I've heard I'm not the only one with this issue and the February update did not fix this issue!

  19. Make the Xbox One Elite Controller paddles unique buttons

    The controller, for me, is perfect in every way with one exception. The rear paddles aren't their own buttons and are only able to duplicate other buttons on the controller. I get that the main purpose is so you don't have to take your thumb off the right stick to press buttons, but what a missed opportunity.

    I can't understand how they can add four new buttons but not give them their own identity. I know Xbox games aren't designed with these paddles in mind, but I'm using it for pc games. I don't need any face buttons duplicated. I…

  20. Repair Option for Xbox Elite Controller

    Seriously, there should be a repair program in place for these controllers. Especially for the price. I not saying it should be free, but it definitely should not cost the full price of the controller.

    Why? I am on my second xbox elite controller whose Left button (on top of the controller --NOT a magnetic piece) has physically broken due to normal play of Halo 5. There is no way to have the button
