Guys , I have some Great Suggestions for Xbox!!!

1. Internet Browser.

(Reason is Because it's necessarily needed and good for wasting time while you're Bored.)

 

2. Multiplayer on Xbox live should be Free, Like Games for windows Live.

(Reason is Xbox Live Silver Membership is so Boring and there is nothing fun I can do except chat and play.)

 

3. Add  Youtube.

(Reason is because it's fun and you can waste your time while you're Bored.)

 

4. Xbox Live Arcade Games should have a Credit or Debit Card option, other than MS Points.

(Reason is  because some People don't use MS Points at all.)

 

5. Return Destination Arcade.

(Reason is it's well organized and can find games easily.)

 

Thanks for Reading..I hope you liked them and agreed :)

NO

1) They wont add a browser because it would give you the opportunity to use services other than those that Microsoft want you to have.

 

2) It'd be nice but there is no way they'd give up such a large revenue stream now.

 

3) They are adding YouTube.

 

4) They do offer a credit/debit card option for Games on Demand but I doubt they'd offer it for XBLA titles as the fees from the card companies wouldn't make it worth their while. They have got a PayPal option now though, so that is one method for people to keep their card away from Microsoft.

 

5) I can't see why they scrapped it other than to force us to watch more adverts as we go through the dashboard and marketplace.

Only someone truly misguided would defend the current MS points system.  The fact it's almost impossible to buy the desired amount for any given purpose, says more about the system than anything i could possibly say.

 

No doubt there will be some that will spout the usual nonsense "Oh, you're only losing $0.80, so it's not going to break the bank" or "you can put them towards other purchases" and so on, yet fails to answer the glaring flaw most people take issue with - why should anyone be forced to use a payment system that requires the customer to pay out $5 for a $4 purchase.

 

As for credit card companies milking MS, well, that would make a change from MS milking their customers via the current points system.  i'm not sure how the Nintendo shop works, but if Sony can manage to allow their users to purchase single items at face value, then MS sure in hell can.  Yup, no issues with customers being fleeced as long as poor old MS don't get fleeced.

Most places have a minimum amount before you can pay by card, I expect that is why the option is there for Games on Demand but not the XBLA titles.

add to that, MS have no issues about selling measly amounts of points or cheap membership deals via LIVE, so your credit card comment is a moot point.  i'd have no issues whatsoever if they allowed me to buy 580msp for something that costs 580msp, but as things stand, no one can purchase the desired amount of points.

 

 

Yup, just checked they sell 500msp for £4.25 - less than most DLC cost.

I agree with you.

The reason why they have an option for credit/debit card for Games On Demand is because it's easier for consumers to buy. If they had MS points, people would have to buy large amounts of points for a single Games on Demand transaction.

I actually retract some of what i said to you voteDC, because after doing a little research it seems i can now buy 800msp and 1200msp, where as before, it was either 600, 2100 or 4200 unless the points were aimed at a specific game i.e. CoD map packs or GTA add ons.  However, there's still many add ons that can only be acquired through having to purchase a surplus amount of points.  So please accept my apologies for completely rubbishing your opinion.  

No.

Well your getting youtube atleast.

1. They might do it with Bing someday if they can figure out a way to do it safely, wouldn't want to get hacked like Sony did after all. But lots of people do want something like this on the system as long as its safe.

2. I agree, but Sonic Scream is right, its a cash cow for them now.

3. They are already it was part of the show at E3, I'm glad they did add it I know I'll use it.

4. They do have Pay Pal if you buy on this site, but I like the point system for Games On Demand mostly, no tax that way ;)

5. All they really need is a search feature, its broken down pretty well with the current dashboard otherwise I think. I know they are adding a Bing search engine for Kinect users but not sure if it will work with non Kinect users yet. What I miss is when you had a game in your system and your on the dashboard you could hit Y and it would show you all the DLC related to that game along with the Install game option.
