  2. Add Xbox Elite Controller to Design Labs

    Well at E3 we did see what the new feature added called Design Labs which helps build a controller of your desires. But, the Elite Controller should be added to the Design Labs so people that have gotten accustom to the Elite Contoller can have it custom made to there own desires. I hope to see if this is possible and this would please many people.

  3. Can we get true wireless headsets with chat online and chat/game audio

    Like title says, a true wireless mic without having to use the chat adapter, or if thats the only create a wireless or blutooth adapter. Im sick of janking off my headset by accident. Make two versions of the headset, chat only, and one that has chat and game audio, both being able to use the wireless/bluetooth adapter.

  4. Bring back IR sensor for the Xbox One controller

    With the new controller available last summer (2015), we lost infrared sensor. This IR window come with some great feature especially when you have a Kinect sensor like (I quote Xbox Wire's story: http://news.xbox.com/2013/06/xbox-one-controller-feature):

    Seamless Connectivity – Each controller uses a combination of invisible reflective technology and LEDs to send a patterned infrared signal to your console and Kinect sensor. Not only does this make pairing the devices seamless, but it enables Kinect to associate the controller with whoever is holding it. This introduces innovative experiences, such as player switching, where a split screen display can swap positions on…

  5. Allow 4K passthrough on Xbox One S

    Since the new Xbox has shifted toward 4K media, can we be able to do 4K passthrough since having the Xbox as your center hub and its hdmi pass through is a main selling point? It would be a shame if we can't use the hdmi in passthrough feature anymore if we're using something that has 4K capabilities.

  6. Dim the bright power light on the Xbox One controller in dark rooms

    The controller power light is very bright and distracting when playing games in dark rooms. The kinect could sense room brightness and send a signal to adjust accordingly (as it does on the console's power light). Its not an issue in bright rooms, but can be annoying out of the corner of your eye in any dark environment.

  9. HOTAS For Xbox One

    If space/flight simulators ever do make it to Xbox One we're going to need the appropriate controller. It would be perfered if we could use our current PC HOTAS controllers and plug them into the Xbox One, but considering all the different models would need different drivers/firmware to work on Xbox One it would be understandable it couldn't happen. I'm sure mad catz could produce a decent one for the Xbox One...just make sure it's a HOTAS.

  10. Every Xbox One and Controller should include Play and Charge kit

    every Xbox One console an controller should include a recharble battery as standard. There is no place for AA Batteries in a console in 2015. Especially the New Elite controller for $150 it should come with a Play an Charge kit .

  11. Make The Next Xbox Console Upgradeable

    Needs to be easy as changing a battery but options are good as seen with the kinect issue. gamers are more equip to handle limited upgrades. all technology like phones , laptop have different specs for their products its time consoles do the same. As a gamer i would like to choose my graphics card to get the best there is. if we had a base . mid and high model gamers would accept it and gladly pay. PC still has to many options so consoles are still the better option for most but we would like to bridge the…

  13. Enable Xbox 360 Drum Rocker (Ion Audio) Controller support on Xbox One for Rock Band 4

    Rock Band 4 is releasing shortly, and there have been numerous articles about the Ion Audio Drum Rocker (Premium Drum set) for Xbox 360 not working on Xbox One via adapters due to it having a unique device id / controller type.

    Since it is a USB connection, is there any way to add driver (?) support for this controller type (since it is not a standard 'controller' output) to work with Rock Band 4 on Xbox One?

  14. Give Scorpio a Kinect Port

    Xbox One S is removing the Kinect port on the back of the system. If Scorpio is a more high-end system, I would like to see it include a kinect port on the back of the box so we can continue to use the kinect without taking up a USB port.

  15. Adjust Microphone sensitivity Xbox Chat Headset / Adapter

    Hallo all,
    I'm starting to notice more and more echoes from myself/others while being in a party chat. When turning on the Partychat overlay I was able to indicate the echoes were coming from multiple users, all using the original Xbox Chat Headset. In my case I am using the headset adapter. Some of them have their party audio also over speakers because of their partner who want "join" our conversations. All of us have turned down our volume, but still a lot off echoing occurs.

    So my suggestion: Could an option be added to adjust the sensitivity of microphones,…

  16. Stream Xbox One games to Hololens

    Now, we all know that streaming from Xbox One to Windows 10 Tablets and PCs is coming, and it's really good news !

    But Microsoft also announced that an all new type of hardware is coming for Windows 10 : Hololens. During the video demo, we've seen that we will be able to watch films on Netflix using Hololens : no need of TV, laptop, tablet or phone : a giant holographic screen will be just in front of our eyes, with spatialized audio.

    So, given Hololens will also use Windows 10, we want to be able to stream Xbox…

  19. Being able to use multiple headsets on one Xbox One

    It would be nice to be able to use multiple different microphones on the same console for talking in game and in party chat. It is a bummer to not be able to allow your friend who is playing multiplayer with you to not be able to be involved in the multiplayer chat. I feel that you should be able to use more then one microphone with separate controllers.

  20. HDR Dolby Vision Support For Xbox One S

    I understandard that the xbox one s will support the hdr 10 standard. Microsoft has not confirmed hdr dolby vision standard. I bought a new tv with hdr dolby vision as many others have. I was planning on upgrading to the S version from my original xbox one for the reasons of the 4k blu ray player and HDR support. there are 4k BLU RAY movies out already supporting dolby vision. It would be a great selling point for Microsoft to support both HDR standards so they do not restrict their sales to the many people whom already have 4k…
