It's time for Microsoft to open that bank vault and spend some serious cash to turn things around.

It needs saving?
Nope... It's already sold enough to guarantee support for the duration of this cycle. That said, Microsoft's 'Reaganomics' approach is encouraging. You've gotta spend money to make money. Unless you're a liar. Or a thief...
:( Very sad that a console less than a year old needs saving!
Or a clown!
No Conker or Banjo? Those are the games that would make me buy an Xbox one immediately. Not Minecraft. I'm not talking for everyone obviously but I do think MS needs their own unique games if they want to keep up. From what I've seen they're doing an alright job already. Sunset Overdrive is a good example of how it's done.
Is it wrong that I'm a PlayStation fan but still want to see Xbox One succeed as well?
No it's smart. You wouldn't like a Sony with no competition. I hope MS fulfills their dream of an xbox media player and kinect haven. WiiU for good second console, and PS4 for the hardcore gamers who don't want gimmicks and billing schemes but just good games at 60fps and 1080p resolution.
Someone needs to tweet or email Phil Spencer this list of suggestions so to see which one he pulls the trigger on first. Honestly believe this can happen for the low price of a billion dollars . Come one Phil make it happen.
No single game or franchise is going to save the Xbone. It has been mismanaged from DAY ONE...it has HALF the library of games, and that trend will continue. It is only selling in significant numbers in the US (thanks to undereducated customers who are slavishly loyal), and it's getting outsold 2 to 1 lifetime, almost 6 to 1 in some markets in Europe. Tier 2 countries didn't save it, price drops didn't save it, Halo MCC won't save it and China won't save it. Stick a fork in it, it's DONE.
