360 Sync: "Dear Microsoft, As an avid user of the Xbox 360 and Xbox LIVE, I am proposing a few ideas to help improve the system. Can we please get some of the following updates in the near future on the Xbox 360"
1. Yes 2. Maybe 3. Yes 4. Yes 5. Yes 6. Yes I say Maybe on the friends list one because: Those with 100 friends. I mean seriously? Its not like you talk to them all. I mean I removed like 10 of my friends because I aint spoken to them in months. I honestly think, at this moment in time, 100 is enough. Sorry. But ill support by giving you an approval :)
it depends what you consider a friend. I can see some people using their friends list for adding anyone they have played a game with and they didn't act like a jerk and actually engaged in team play.
8. A Platinum Service ($80) to get rid of all the ads.
I have nearly 300 subscribers on Youtube on Nave360 channel. I get people sending me a F/R just because im "that guy from that video" LIKE WTF?
i want less features and a lower years subscription cost. I don't use anything apart from downloading DLC content and Arcade games (which I pay for separately). I am tired of my dash board advertisements and as much as I want to bang Keeley Hazel - she can fuck off with her Lynx/Axe adverts.
How about some more AAA EXCLUSIVE GAMES. You know the type of games that are very well made but only available on the 360. Multi-plats are cool but ummmm EXCLUSIVES are better.
All i want is a halo 4 this year.I know i will get loads of disagrees but i dont care, i luv halo...I get killzone 3 on my ps3 and halo 4 on my 360.I will b one happy FPS fan this year. I know my comment is a bit off topic but a halo 4 can improve the 360 line up this year.
I think a game where the main character is a tea bag, and you've got to avoid falling in to a cup of boiled water, could improve the line-up this year. Less adverts, and a browser please.
@BLACKBOIJONES wait so you've made it to 15th prestige already?
they need to make a powerful and reliable system with free xbl while releasing a lot of core games for majority of their fanbase
"how can we be expected to only have 100 friends?" uh ? out of those 100 how many are even actual friends ? i dont mind if the list can expand , i dont care ... but the word seems quite abused here Anyway my "useful feature" would be being able to remove stuff like the avatars , and actually truly see the theme i'm using
Internet Browser.. I'm still waiting for it.
enkeixpress A browser would be a splendid addition. I use mine on PS3 to mainly peruse Scandinavian websites. The downside is i have nearly made myself go blind but on the upside i now have arms like Popeye.
Apparently the xbox does have an internet browser. You just connect to your PC through media center and viola! I never used it though. And I personally feel that a browser on a console is useless, I just browse on my PC.
Yeah just like cross game chat on a console is useless right?
Should say "Xbox Live". Nothing they list has a thing to do with the 360 itself.
For the most part, I agree with these. The increase in friends would be useless for me. I used to have 100 friends and would constantly have to delete just to add more but the fact is, I never actually played with 90% of them. So basically I just deleted everyone that I didn't know in real life or consistenly play with. My list is down to 30 something now. If you play with all 100, well then congrats, maybe you do need a bigger list. I'm not against it but it's not a must for me. When I had 100 I was always trying to figure how a certain friend got on my list and who they were.
To increase the friends list size is a bonus to gamers living in countries with a much smaller gaming population. If you search for a random game it will join you up with Europe or the US which makes lag quite bad because there are no local games. What we usually do is join the games local gamers are playing on our friends list. Having a bigger friends list will give us more games to join.
now that's a sensible and valid reason that i can support
i just want MS to bring out some original titles
Well there is many xbox live can improve on..but I just want it to be affordable for most.
things it needs to survive! *bluray *disc drive that sucks in disc *free multiplayer *better controller *720p games *more exclusives *better UI -Ninja Gaiden 3-is sick!:)
What are you talking about? I just checked all my game cases. They are all 720p at least. And your first 3.....so you want it to be a PS3 basically? Why? If both consoles were the same that would be pointless. And it apparently doesnt need these things to survive. Everyone thought so when it first came out too, me being one of them. But it seems to be doing just fine without all that.
How many friends do you have on Facebook? If >100, than hopefully you see my point. I see the future of Xbox LIVE being a gaming social network, if it isn't already. 100 friends can't accomplish this.
At the same time, if they raise the cap, there would need to be an improved filter for which notifications pop up. Imagine having 250 friends on LIVE and watching them sign in during peak evening hours. That'd successfully kill any sense of immersion. It may seem a bit out there, but the ability to make lists like on Twitter would go a long ways toward accomplishing this. However, given the current state of the notification system, it'd need quite the overhaul.
