  1. Unlockable and Purchasable Gamerpics

    Unlockable GamerPics: This would allow gamers to add more variety to their choices of GamerPic, add a little more of their personality to their profile based on what they play, and yet also eliminate the threat of lewd or offensive custom pics.

    Gamers could also pay a small fee to purchase them on their own, which would make MS some money!

    For example, I play NHL 17 and would love to have my hockey team's logo available to add to my profile. I'm amazed this isn't an option, considering it was on the 360.

  5. Reverting back to Xbox 360 gamer picture on Xbox One.

    This has been posted about but we need to unite. Im sure your aware that when coming over to the Xbox one it will pop with an option to keep your old gamer picture or change to the new set of images. If you do not make the selection to keep your old gamer picture at this point in time you will never have the opportunity again. Still trying to figure out why Microsoft enabled this feature but does not allow you to revert back at a later time. You also have no ability to change it back by any…

  6. Gamertag release

    Release inactive Gamertags

    I've played Xbox for many years, and we all like to be identified in our own way. But many of our names that we would enjoy have been scooped up, and the worst is, your name might be taken by someone who hasn't played online since modern warfare on the 360 came out. These accounts are holding gamertags that could enhance our own experience since there's is at an end, but with how this system works we might never get the chance to have our favourite names.

    I think that if an account on Xbox 360 who…

  8. Achievement Improvement

    Achievements on the Xbox One can be vastly improved, although there are nice features which were added with the Xbox One such as the achievement percentage display it shouldn't have come at the cost of achievements no longer instantly popping. It removes the a lot of the satisfaction if you have to wait for the achievement to pop or haven't realised and then only notice it later. Especially if you are aiming for a particular achievement. Achievements should be as instant on the Xbox One as they are on the 360 or at the bare minimum greatly improved compared to…

  9. Profile Picture Customization

    In the Xbox One app we should have the option to customize our gamer pics beyond what's relative or given to us from Xbox. This option could be app exclusive and anyone that has a smartphone can perform these actions by downloading the app. They could choose from what's in their photo stream or any album.

    One security measure would be a system to automatically weed out obscene or vulgar photos and purify the use of third party profile pictures such as what's being proposed.

    My reasoning for having this option is because I have seen multiple friends in my…

  11. Achievement Sorting

    I think sorting achievements would be so good for achievement hunters. If you could sort achievements by name, rarity, gamerscore, and even by DLC. This would make it so much easier.

  13. Freedom to keep or delete your very own achievements.

    The freedom to keep or delete games and your own achievements and for 1000G to be 100% completion for that game. DLC is not part of the game, it is content that is purchased separate from the game.
    We the people will not be coerced to purchase DLC that is separate from the game in order to attain 100% completion.
    We the people purchase the console. We the people purchase the game. We the people earn the achievements. It is our right to choose what we do with our achievements.

    Freedom.

  16. Make discontinued achievements to vanish from the list if not obtained.

    There will be times that certain online achievements will get discontinued either due to a shut down of servers. Please make the feature where discontinued achievements will vanish from the achievement list for that specific game.

  17. When viewing achievements, add the option to hide unwanted games with low gamerscore. (including Xbox 360 games)

    I have seen countless threads about people wanting to delete games with low gamerscore earned from their achievements list, even if it meant sacrificing the gamerscore they earned from those games. It seems to be an OCD thing as opposed to an actual issue but it makes sense to me and it is very understandable why people can be annoyed by it. They want the Achievements section to be less cluttered. Gamers try a game, earn a few achievements, couldn't be bothered to play the game again because they dislike it. So, here is an easy solution, if you don't…

  18. Busy/Do Not Disturb and Away Feature

    Like the Xbox 360, add a feature named busy, or do not disturb, so when you set your status to that you don't receive notifications until you restart the console. Also, add a feature where if the controller has turned itself off and the console has not been used in a while e.g. 30 mins, then it sets your status to away so people don't keep inviting you, thinking that you're ignoring them.

  19. Moving Background

    So achevment backgrounds are cool, so are colored backgrounds. But it would be cool to have moving/gif backgrounds so for example a fishtank, the waves of the ocean, falling snow. A clock you know legit could be anything moving. A cat playing :) so ya add moving/gif backgrounds for the Xbox home
