It's future Xbox One (& potential Xbox One) owners turn now.

I did a post on the Playstation side about what crazy feature you would to see on the next gen console.
Now it's Xbox One's turn.

What crazy feature would Xbox One owners like to see. Something that will make people say "I didn't see that coming, and do a double take"...

Once again please nothing stupid like "let it make grilled cheese sandwiches while gaming" or "can it blend?"

Once again, let's stay in reality. Something than can actually be done on the console... Gaming is a given.
We gamers are suppose to have great imaginations, let's have some fun.


I would love for a lot of games to have a more deeper Kinect, tablet/phone/pc integration... AAA titles getting deeper companion apps so the games really doesn't end. And some of the Arcade games can be played on tablet/pc/phone and you can play wherever you left off. Playing let's say PAC-Man. And you pause it. And sax Xbox Move game to tablet. And the game app launches and PAC-Man is paused in the same instance you left it at on the X1. That would be sweet. Sure not every game could do it. But smaller games could.

Of course this being new Tech and all. You would need latest phone/pc/tablet from say the past year or so. Just so the hardware could handle it. Sure the graphics would be tones down. But they would look good enough.

I'd would like an out of the box, wireless screen system, so you dont need a cable to your TV and you could have Multiple Screens setup at the same time for local Multi player Or Playing different games in different rooms, with only having 1 device. Especially since they are locking content to device/account.

No mandatory Kinect. Seems to be a crazy idea for MS.

 

No Kinect then the price can actually be similar to the PS3 and not nearly £100 more.

Bringing back all the original features that existed before the 180.

Not really a feature is it?

Go find your local 'modder' and have that experience right now, on your Wii, PS3, 360.

I'm sure Microsoft will re-enable the feature soon enough. If not, it will be done for them anyway, just give it a year or 3 :)

This really puzzles and annoys me. If it can be disabled, why can't it be disconnected?

I'm not that bothered about the extra cost, and devs still know that everybody has one, so just stop being ######, MS. Okay?

###### um, anyway. It's just another ###### move that will be hacked into oblivion (eventually).

no adverts on the first screen / page and it completely designed around games, the rest of the screens i don't care

 

Ability to upgrade the hard disk like the PS3/4

 

QR code scan for live codes and other digital stuff brought in store. So for example you can buy Steam, Xbox and Nintendo money in store in the uk, instead of putting in a load of digits simply hold the QR code in front of the kinnect camera. 

 

opens up the Windows Phone platform for games to be compatible with the XB1, games you purchase on either and that are compatible can be downloaded and played on either, save games sync'd through the cloud. A good way to go under the radar and start to take on the 3DS and the Vita, plus it would start to push the Windows Phone as a gaming machine, adding to it's appeal?

 

Built in ability to pick up freeview in the UK and to act as a DVR.

So what you really want is the PS4? Kinect mandatory is the best thing to happen to kinect.

I want crazy family sharing back.

Not really I'd just never pay over £400 for a console. I bought my fat ps3 after launch second hand for £330 off eBay.

Im giving Kinect 2 the benefit of a doubt this gen. People keep crying about disconnecting it etc. who even cares its hooked up?... Oh the NSA thing that the media riles people up over, took funny. People should know they were being spied on for years now...

Games will be a given... I'm excited to see the cherry on top features.. I want to say Xbox On, I want to see how the controller and Kinect funtions together.

Gamescon, should show a more fleshed out ecosystem
