  1. Customise your own unique XBOX ONE S with Xbox Design Labs

    Since E3 we have got the Xbox Design Labs where we can customise the color scheme for our own unique controller design, but why stop there? Why not the same treatment for the Xbox One S? Check out the link - https://youtu.be/93OvrF4e-HE
    This is a video I did on YouTube demonstrating this idea where you can choose the colors you want for your Xbox One S and the Controller to match. I think it would be a great idea for consumers and a huge selling point for Xbox

  2. 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.

  3. Sell rechargable battery packs WITHOUT the charge cable

    I don't need more cables, I need replacement battery packs. Please sell the battery packs without cables. You did this for Xbox 360, and it made sense.

  4. Let us use our Xbox One controllers on the next generation of Xbox

    So I've invested a large amount of money on my SCUF and my ELITE Controller, I'd love to see continued support on the next Xbox to use any Xbox controller you want.

    Thanks.

  5. Don't make Xbox consoles' hardware upgradeable

    I've heard the news. You're talking about making Xbox consoles upgradable like PCs. Well, the whole point of buying the console instead of PC is that you don't have to worry about your hardware. You just get what you get - optimized game for your console. Sometimes it looks better then PC, sometimes - worse, but who cares. It always runs fast, it's always optimized, it always works! You just buy games for 5-10 years and don't even think about these system requirements or hardware. And then you just get new console and stop worrying for another 5 years. You…

  6. Make Windows 10 hardware compatible with Xbox One

    I'm thinking of Flight Sticks, GamePads, Headsets, etc. That would be a tremendous advantage against Sony I guess ^^

    [Mod edit: Title changed from "hardware that is "win10 approved" should work on XBox One as well" to "Windows 10 hardware compatible with Xbox One."]

  7. Make the Controller Home Button Color an Option in Design Labs

    Recently, the "Xbox Design Lab" was announced. This means that alot of people will be buying one of millions of custom controllers that are unique to them. Whilst 90% of the controller is available for edit, the home button is not. I think it should he made possible that the LED light within the controller can also be changed from the original white. Maybe this is somthing to import onto the Elite Controllers only. Just a small idea. Hope some agree.

  8. How about using Ready Boost or other USB memory enhancement on the Xbox One

    Using "readyboost" to somehow boost the xbox one's performance...

  9. 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…

  10. Keep updating the Xbox One so there's no need for a new Xbox Gen

    I think that if the Xbox one would keep getting major updates that there would be no need for another Xbox console. It has the cloud and will be getting Direct X 12. So if it keeps getting major updates there would be no need for another Xbox console other than Xbox one hopefully getting a virtual reality add on. Please consider this Xbox because I think other people will like the idea. What if a person gets a Xbox One the day before E3 and Xbox releases another console. I think they would be mad. So please consider my…

  11. Include Elite Controller With Project Scorpio

    I think it would be a great idea to include a Elite controller with all project scorpio consoles. It would be sad if gamers only have one controller that is the Elite and go to trade in the current Xbox One to upgrade to project scorpio to get a controller that is the newer bluetooth supported controller instead of the Elite. Especially, since they paid $250 for it.

  12. 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.

  13. Allow us to put a faster HDD or SSD in the Xbox Scorpio

    Not being able to swap the hard drive of the Xbox One has been a disappointment for a long time. The 5400RPM hard drive is simply too slow for loading modern games and the complex Xbox OS. On the PS4 you have been able to put in your own hard drive or SSD since day one.

    For the Xbox Scorpio please make this an option. There are many people who have a fast hard drive or SSD and would love to use that.

  14. Low battery - make the gamepad logo light flash

    Please make the logo light on the Xbox One controllers flash when the battery is becoming low. With enough warning so that the controller doesn't go flat in the next ten minutes - for example let the logo flash for a couple of hours or so.

    Basically bring the low battery indicator (flashing light / logo) from the Xbox 360 controllers to the Xbox one please. I don't think the notification that pops up on the screen is good enough - the battery goes flat too quickly after this notification.

  15. Make Xbox One racing wheels compatible with Xbox 360 backward compatible games

    If possible I'd love to see XBOX One compatible racing wheel support for XBOX 360 games (via backwards compatibility).

    Should the XBOX 360 games at some point be made compatible with steering wheel controllers, having them be compatible with a wheel that is also compatible with XBOX One games would be ideal for those wanting to play old and new games without having to use more than one wheel.

    I'd also imagine that XBOX 360 compatible wheels will become scarce in future, so having the ability to use a current generation wheel would be extremely beneficial.

  16. Xbox One Media Remote incapable of accessing "more info" within the Games section since NXOE

    When clicking on game information within the Games section, it is now apparently impossible to access access "more information" unless you are using the right thumb stick on the Controller... thus rendering the Media Remote useless in this area...

    This is very unfortunate for those who used the Xbox One Media Remote for the connivence it held over the Controllers when viewing media... I hope this issue can be tended to soon...

  17. External Hard Drive can be put to sleep.

    One thing about my new External Hard Drive is it doesn't get put to sleep with no gaming activity or when the console is put into standby. At present I need to turn it off myself and then remember to turn it back on when I fire up.

  19. Make the Xbox One Wireless Adapter compatible with Steam Link

    Currently the Xbox One Wireless Adapter doesn't work with the Steam Link. I want to use my Xbox One controller, but I'm going to have to buy a controller from a different manufacturer unless this is fixed. This is not a smart business decision. Please rectify the situation.

    [Mod edit: This idea was combined with a similar post from Big Mc Patty. Thanks, everyone!]
