  1. 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…

  3. Send in console for upgrade to the Elite SSD Hard Drive without voiding the warranty

    I'm fine with their being a cost difference as SSD's are not cheap but I would like an option for me to send the console to Microsoft for the hard drive to be installed professionally and keep my warranty intact. Their are many Xbox One owners with 500GB,and 1TB harddrives but SSD is going to increase overall performance to the system and the option should be available to anyone that owns a console.

  4. VR Compatibility for The Original Xbox One

    With Sony announcing Playstation VR and a host of amazing games and up coming games that support VR are to be released. Examples of this are Batman: Arkham VR and and Resident Evil 7. I would prefer not to have to buy another console to play these games in this mode and im sure with a simple hardware development and adaption to the existing console these games would be playable in VR on Xbox one.

  5. 15th Anniversary LE Xbox One console honoring the Original Xbox

    First, add Backwards Compatibility support for Original Xbox titles (this is a whole issue in itself).

    Then, on the 15th anniversary of the launch of the Original Xbox, release a limited edition Xbox One console that is the exact size and shape as the Original Xbox. Instead of controller ports in front it would have 4 USB ports and the back of the console would have the same ports as any Xbox One. Ventilation would be adjusted for the Xbox One's needs. Other than that, it would be exactly the same physical design as the Original Xbox. As a cool…

  6. Make the Hard Drive removable

    When I first heard about the Xbox One last year I couldn't believe that the Hard Drive wasn't removable. In this generation 500GBs of hard drive space fills up extremely fast. The PS4 has a removable hard drive. Allowing external storage devices is good, but it's a short term band aid fix for the problem.

  7. HD DVD drive support on xbox one.

    I really feel that this should have been a no brainer from the start; after all the HD dvd drive is a piece of Microsoft hardware, and HD dvd's their favoured software. What frustrates me is I feel that all this would take to accomplish, would be one quick update (I may be wrong), and would give everyone who has the player and the disks another reason to keep gaining enjoyment from their collection; that they supported, regardless of it being a "dead" format. This should be an easy one.

  10. Tom Clancy Edition Consoles

    You should make some Tom Clancy custom consoles and controllers. Examples R6 Siege, Splinter Cell and Ghost Recon. This guy introduced me to Xbox and im sure many others could say the same.
