There are literally games that I almost never play anymore because I don't like the idea of having to get up and flip a discs allow us to converter games to digital heck will even mail them into you so that nobody else can use them ever again
Yea, the media center as it exists in XBOX ONE is pretty light. It needs a lot of work. I'm looking forward to future development. jpickerell I will go check that out.
Adding support for Adobe Flash and Microsoft Silverlight would be a huge advantage. Since many have complained about the lack of apps available for the XBOX ONE, especially from cable networks that stream media online to their subscribers, by allowing users to access these streaming sites through the browser, they could still watch their favorite shows through the console.
Yes, I know that by allowing Adobe Flash, you then allow users to play a LOT more games and apps online than before, which is the reason why Apple has refused to allow Flash support on their iOS devices. Still, I thought the fine folks at Microsoft were better than that.
Believe me, Flash games aren't so good that we would stop buying games in the XBOX store. Go ahead, go play Crappy Cat http://crappycat.com/game/ then play Halo Master Chief Collection and tell me you're still afraid of Flash ruining your game market. The idea is ludicrous.
Again, in a perfect world, we'd be able to stream all of the media we enjoy through XBOX APPS, but until the rest of the cable networks come into line and start providing XBOX ONE apps, many of us would like another way to view media.
Believe me, we would PREFER an app for this purpose. Look at the HBO GO app. It's awesome! Plus the quality of video is far superior than that I get from my browser on my PC. While in the browser, I'd say we get DVD quality at best, through the XBOX ONE app, it's Blu-Ray quality all the way.
Since for many networks though right now, like [adult swim], CNN, Discovery, and others, there are not XBOX ONE apps, by allowing flash, we would at least still be able to enjoy these networks on our consoles. Please implement Adobe Flash and Silverlight in your next update.

At first I thought "ZOMG THIS!!!", but thinking about it, this may not work, at least not well. The problem being transfer speeds. Via USB 3.0, you get data transfer rates of 5Gbps. With an ethernet connection, you only get 1Gbps.
While the 1Gbps connection is great for network sharing of media files, load and access times for game files may be drastically lagged if used on such a relatively slow connection. There is a reason Microsoft utilized USB 3.0 technology in the XBOX ONE.
So for now, ethernet networked drives for game storage may not be the best way to go.
