10 Things that would Improve Xbox One 1 by 10 times!
DLNA Streaming Client – There’s no reason not to
do this, Xbox 360 already has it, I know you can push stuff to Xbox One but
that seems rather antiquated in 2013 and doesn’t work well.
Support Standard USB PnP devices (Memory Sticks,
Keyboards, Fightsticks), NOW. Again a
feature that the Xbox 360 has had for many years and is totally necessary.
Particularly if you are going to make me enter 25-digit codes, type chat
messages or type complex passwords let me use my USB keyboard!
Support MP3/Ogg/MP4 music files on devices and
Add compatibility for Xbox Live voice messages
both sending and receiving. This was one of my genuine WTF!?! moments on the
console when some of my friends sent me voice messages to my Live! account asking
about X1 and I couldn’t hear them or send anything back on the X1. How lame?
Allow Snapped applications to auto-hide, in fact
IMHO that should be the default behaviour. I might take a call on Skype while
playing a game but I don’t want to lose ¼ of my screen to it all the time, it’s
Provide separate volume controls for different
Allow us to replace in-game music with our own
music from ANY source (USB/DNLA/etc), I know it’s possible with a paid
subscription to Xbox Music but I’ve watched the various iterations of Xbox
Music over many years and I will probably never join. Sorry but the service isn’t
good enough and there have been too many problems and you are never going to be my trusted
music source. Being able to replace in-game music was such a good feature on
the Xbox 360; PLEASE continue it on the X1. Music is so personal and being able
to have my own available has helped me enjoy games I would not have done
anything like as much if stuck with the music that shipped with the game.
Please allow me to easily see how much disk
space I have on my console, how much my apps are using, and to manage this
somehow. ATM I have literally no idea how much space I have left.
Please allow us to use USB storage to expand our
consoles, again this was so useful on the Xbox 360, it will be again on Xbox
Please allow better control of sign ins, ideally
some kind of “lock” mode where nobody else can sign in until I cancel it. It is
very frustrating to lose all progress on my current game because someone else
walked past the camera! Finally the interface also needs better a better management tool, Pins isn't enough.
