  1. friends who own this

    Imagine looking at a game in the xbox store and thinking, "would I like this", or "I'd get this, but nobody else would play it with me". Well what if right from the store you had a list of friends that own it and wether they've got it on demand or on disc. Now you can ask their opinions or know you may have somebody to play it with. This would create "word of mouth" propaganda, which drives sales. This could also be used by other apps to save you the trouble of inviting friends to join games they don't…

  2. Game Add-Ons DLC Based on a Games We Own Filter

    I would love to be able to weed out all the "garbage" add-ons DLC from the games I don't own. That way I can look at Game Add-ons based only on the games I have played on my account. Tired of scrolling through ALL the stuff I don't even want to see. This would be great for all the people who just want to buy stuff for the games they own and play. No need to get distracted by all the games we don't even own. Then once you buy a game, when activating this filter it looks at your…

  3. Wishlist Notifications for 360

    Ability to add games to your wishlist to notify you by email when and if they go on sale. See Steam*

    I want to give my Kinect a proper sendoff (thank you Microsoft for once again messing up), but for example Haunt is ten dollars. Way too much!

  4. Have a button within each game on the store to "notify me when price drops".

    While looking through games the other day there were many that I would be interested in if on sale. It would be great to have a button that allows me to receive a notification when the price drops.

    MS/Publishers could use this data (how many people are interested in this game at a different price point) to better judge possible revenue when putting a game on sale.

    I just think that having that data would support putting a game on sale quicker, if the publishers could see what type of interest people have in the games when placed at a…

  5. Notification when pre-orders become available in the Xbox Store

    Would be cool to get some kind of an alert message on the console for digital games for example: Rise of the Tomb Raider is now available for pre order in the xbox one store app

  6. Ability to play digital games as soon as they're ready without waiting for physical discs to be printed

    As the title says.

    [Mod edit: Title changed from "Being able to play games as soon as they go gold as a perk to going digital."]

  7. Add a countdown timer to Deals with Gold promotions

    At present it's easy to miss out on offers, but if there was an expiration date on the promotions we would have no excuse. The use of countdown timers also adds a sense of urgency and so could actually help to increase sales.

    This idea was inspired by a post on Reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/xboxone/comments/28bueq/dear_microsoft_please_put_a_sale_end_date_on/

  8. Choose a language for games you bought in XBOX store

    First, I'd like to apologize for my poor English.

    Now I'm going to describe what feature I'd like to have on XBOX ONE.

    Right now whenever you purchase a game in XBOX store, the in-game language is going to be the language of your account region. For example, a game bought with a Russian xbox live account will be in Russian.

    But as a language learner I'd like to have an option to choose a language for a game I've just purchased. Maybe some kind of pop-up with languages available for the game.

    In my case I'd like to be…

  9. Introduce renting availability in xbox store for games that gamers want to try before spending $60.00 .

    As a gamer i hate buying a game that comes out and i play it for a day or two and take it back to the store where i barely get a return for it. With a rental service you give gamers a chance to preview the game for a day or two before they go and make a sixty dollar purchase on something that their going to return.

  11. Prices Shown on Top Level Icons in Store

    Having to click on every single game or DLC icon to find out how much that product costs is frustrating. When I go to an online store it is standard practice to see prices on products, and if I want to know more about it or buy it, one will then click it

  12. Lower Australian Xbox Games Store Prices

    The prices for digital copies of games from the Xbox Online Store is usually $100 in Australia. It is only $60 for most games in the US Store. Lower the prices to something more reasonable.

  13. "Coming Soon" section of store should only show each game once

    As is the layout and the amounts of versions are way to many and could be more organised. http://i.imgur.com/7wBudLn.jpg?1

    Have ONE cover of the game show and the rest under that when it's clicked. And for gods sake remove the "Bundle Only" versions, they are just taking up uanessacry space.

    A solution could be like this.

    When a cover is clicked is goes to the standard page as it is now.
    Where the price is shown there will be a drop down menu to select which version the person wants to buy.

    Under the Bundle includes, that'll update when a…

  15. Notice about games delisting on 360

    Microsoft really needs to start giving notices about games they are going to remove, so people like me can buy them on short notice. I was going to buy Uno and Uno Rush in one swoop and now they're both gone. Had I known about it, I would've bought them yesterday.

  16. Convert Achievement Gamerscore Into Currency Over Xbox Live Store.

    Converting gamers core into currency would allow gamers to purchase new games, or pay for micro transactions with their gamerscore. Doing this would encourage players to rack up as much gamerscore in every game they play in order to receive discounts, or to pay for a certain item fully, by letting go of a couple thousand gamerscore.

  17. % Discount Credits for Xbox Store

    This is essentially a reward system for buying/downloading content from the Xbox Store. I propose that when someone buys/downloads a new game they earn a 1% discount to be used on a different purchase of their choice. The discount could then accumulate for a total of 10% (or something) so that people could use their discount on content they want. So for example if someone bought one game a month for a year they would have earned 12 one percent discount credits (only 10 could be redeemed on a given purchase) and they could use all 12 on two games…

  18. Scalable Discount on Ultimate Editions for Users who own some DLC

    with Ultimate and Complete editions of Games going on sale constantly, but DLC not. People who bought the game early are penalized.

    I propose that the Xbox should be able to scan your dlc, and give a discount to season passes and/or Ultimate editions of games depending on the amount of DLC you have already purchased.

    Say if you had 1 of 4 Call of Duty dlc packs, the system should recognize this and give you a 20% discount on the season pass.

    This will still reward early adoptors of the season pass, but not harshly penalize people who want…

  19. Put game resolutions on the back of the box again.

    This is all about being upfront with the players. All Xbox 360 games had the resolution on the back of the box. This needs to happen for Xbox One games as well. All the news outlets end up telling us the game's resolution anyway and then it becomes a big deal. Most of us would rather hear these official details from Microsoft. You could also put FPS up there as well. Just be upfront with the player, since it seems like something is trying to be hidden otherwise.

  20. A "my bought games" list

    A list of "my games" that aren't installed on the console but are just bought in the Xbox Store. So it is more easily to install them later rather searching of in the Store of the game which name you've forgotten. Because you've 'bought' it as a Games for Gold game about six months ago.

    An idea of integration might be within the current "my games" list that only shows the installed games at the moment.
