  1. Make internet downloading possible.

    If there is a file manager, then why can't we download stuff from the internet? I'm gonna take minecraft as an example. You are able to download worlds from the internet on android/IOS and windows 10. I tried whatever i could, but there was no easy OR official way to download files. For me the file manager app is kind of useless, since the only thing you can really do is import files via a USB stick. This can be easier, right?

    Oh, and another small request in case this is gonna be a thing, can you add support for…

  2. No loot boxes for new Careers achievement

    With the up coming achievements. I know people think loot boxes are good for cosmetics only but we see how even there grid is artificially increased to use bordem to drive cosmetic loot box sales (Destiny 2?).

    This careers looks like an attempt to justify the use of gambling euphoria. (Ok no money exchange but same psychological mechanics used still)

    A better idea: just tell us what the reward item will be and let us players decide if it is worth investing our time into getting.

  3. Recycle games bought on console

    I was wondering would Xbox ever recycle bought games from the games store? Like I have a £50 ww2 game on my console which I completed in a day! Now if this game was on disk I’d be able to trade it in a game shop for another new game the same price.. now that made me think.. would Xbox ever think about letting there customers recycle their old bought games for a new on on their console? For a game that is the same price range.. would be a great idea! It’s a shame to see our games not…

  4. Remote Streming Function on XBOX APP

    The XBOX application for WIN10 is great and has good funcinalities. Playing the game via streaming on your network is great, but it would be incredible if you could play remotely (without hassling or adapting to it). I'd like to play remotely directly from my desk at my lunch hour, or when I'm in a hotel room streaming directly from my XBOX that's in my house.
    It would be like TeamViwer ... you get it?

  5. 4K textures as DLC instead of updates

    With the One X comes massive 4K patches. Most of the space used by these is, AFAIK, for textures. My suggestion is that instead of having these as part of a patch they are distributed as DLC. Then you can choose yourself if you want to use them or not and still get the other enhancements for the X without spending hundreds gigs of harddrive space on just one game.

  8. Windows 10 and Xbox One gamesharing

    Here's the thing. At the moment you can only gameshare over xbox.

    My situation is, I want to play a game with a friend on PC but they don't have much money, so I want to gameshare with them. Here is what I want to to: buy a game on xbox and gameshare normally through the home xbox thing, then they sign into their computer and because the home xbox is sharing with their profile, they will be able to access it on their pc.

    Thank you.

  12. Make the the game captures video player better and a better game DVR

    why can't I rewind and fast forward my videos in the game captures section , I can only pause the video THATS IT ! so why cant I do that without going to the upload studio and do it from there ! please fix it , and also I want to mention that the game DVR need more enhancements too, and to make it better you only need to make it record more than 2 minutes for 1080, seriously 2 minutes is REALLY not enough it needs to be at least 15 minutes as a person who like to capture…

  15. Xbox VR with Konect

    If you guys would repurpose the Kenect, I think you would dominate VR. Other VR headsets require you to hold a controller of some kind. You wouldn't need one with Konect. All you would have to do is come up with a pair of gloves so you can "feel" whatever you touch in game.

  16. GTA IV Clip Audio

    When recording clips from Grand Theft Auto IV, no audio is present. In other words, complete and utter silence. I believe this should be fixed as soon as possible, as I would like to capture specific moments from the game! Thank you!

  17. We need an exexlusive for with FROMSOFTWARE (RBG game)

    Xbox is weak on the exclusivity of RBG games; it would be great if they made a deal with FROMSOFTWARE to develop a new IP for xbox just like SONY did with bloodborn; and the only game of this kind that xbox is planning to release is ASHEN which looks promising but not enough.

  19. Remove unfounded chat ban

    I have recently aquired an unfounded chat ban. Chat bans should be reviewed by someone appointed by xbox/microsoft to come up with undisputed evidence that a policy infraction has occured before a ban is enforced.
