Ten Features Wanted in the Next Xbox Dashboard Update...
While the ten points are alright and are needed for the next update. I would like MS to make MSN messenger on the Xbox 360 much better, it was rushed and I can tell.
the web browser. That just leaves the door open to stuff that could be harmful.
Web browsers just ask for trouble, keep it a closed network. I have a PC for browsing the net much like the billions of other people that do. I think that should be replaced with being able to download news text/podcast/chat rooms/forums Like XBstream but better. Everything else on that list I agree with.
video chat thru msn would be nice, a web browser would be nice, but not necessary. i like the idea of xbox1 games. dammit i wanna people to know i am playing republic commando. and there was another one. 8 i believe. 5,8,10 i agree with. everything else i could care less about
1.Group voice chat 2.Larger Friends list 3.A way to group people on my friendslist together (i.e. Gears of War players,ShadowRun Players, Great Snipers, Local players etc.)
That's my wish list too, lol.
small feature but adding a comment next to someone on my friends list would help. Like many Live users i tend to forget who everyone is. so: LL gamertag LL: John, from MLG forum or xX Gamertag Xx: my halo double team friend. May sound stupid but im sure many people wil find it more useful than they think. Also, Web browser seems gimmicky to me. We all have PCs.
more video codec support//multi voice and video chat(at least 4-6)//guide access while playing original xbox games//ability to save DLd video content to an external drive(owned content, not rented movies)//espn nfl 2k5 to be BC//personalized content setup(you choose certain games and get a specific message only when the games on your list have new content)
3 and 4 are the same want... other than that good features to maybe have. Sure it's not needed but why not throw in a web browser seeing that almost all electronics out there now-a-days have it, yet like we all know it's not needed. I think it would be pretty sweet if they could find a way to get xbox1 games to show up but I'm not sure if they could.
It would be nice if the games you demo from the arcade were removed from your gamer card. Instead of eating up 200 points worth of space if you chose not to buy it. They can keep the web broswing. Multiple person private chat would also be nice.
HOME, this is the future my friends, we migth be able to sublet this technology to microsoft or nintendo for the right fee.
wow, you go to every 360 post and talk about how great home is. You must have a wonderful life. But I honestly hope it is fun. That way you can have some virtual friends to come over to your virtual house and play some fake pool. Hell, its not as good as real friends, but I am sure you would talk what you can get.
1. Group chat 2. Larger friends list 3. dont really care if they add web browsing or not but wouldnt mind it *********most important************* 4. and a type of xbox news service that tells us upcoming games, new content in the marketplace, upcoming content in the marketplace, upcoming arcade games 5. a free section in the marketplace 6. And they need to increase the speed of the network. I'm talking about for example if someone starts up a game in Gears of War it shouldnt say that they are joinable even though they are in the menus. drunkao- that is a good idea also. it would be very helpful.
I think a nice feature would be a notification of when a particular friend was available to join. The notification would appear and then you could just press the guide button to join them automatically. You might want to play with a friend but you don't really want to disturb their game because their in a match or something. But then when they leave and go back to the lobby it notifies you and you can just join them. Basically it keeps you from waiting for them to become available. Once I start I game I always want to add more songs to the current songs that are already playing, but my only option is to change the songs completely which is frustrating. I also think they should allow you to edit your music playlist from the guide menu. This seems like something obvious that should have been added a long time ago. When you're in the dashboard you can change the order, remove, and add songs into the playlist, but once you start a game all you can do is change the current playlist completely instead of possibly just changing a few song from the guide menu. Damnit! This is the second time I replied to someones post when I meant to start my own.
I'm not bagging on home it looks nice. But i don't want a life within my 360 or PS3 i just want something fast and easy to navigate through. I played The Sims and i burned out on the years ago. It might be good but it's not for everyone. To each is own.
but that's why I think home will be a major failure, most people will get bored within a couple days because they'll realize that it doesn't really do anything, and just makes games more troublesome to play.
Honestly, I think HOME would be good for xbox live. I think that with the unified friends lists, cross game invites, cross game voice chat, and what not it would be way better. After playing 50,000 matches of Gears it would be cool to just go to your house and invite everybody to come over there. I dont know if I would want to show people my trophies or have a barbecue and eat virtual food lol but playing pool and bowling with my friends in a virtual setting would be pretty damn cool. You have to admit home added on to everything else xbox live has would the sh!t. Hurry up and copy it microsoft.
what i like about live is its not all inclusive. its not full blown HOME. Dammit if i want a Barbeue, i want a real one, not a virtual one. hangingout with my friends playing pool or bowling? why when i can do that in reality? its not like its the matrix.
They should have a porn blade in the new update.
a nice simple and easy update would be to be able to have a different picture for each blade of the o.s. : ) BUT ALL I WANT IS DIVX/XVID SUPPORT - if that was the only update next time I would be very HAPPY LOL
the option to sort market place content by price would be nice. as well as many of the things other people listed and the whole list from this news.
I just want the ability to play any codec video I want through my PC.
if 360 gets HOME, they would be all set. Wow, i am surprised live doesnt have group chat, or group video chat. PSN has it. Anyways, Live needs HOME. When HOME is out, Live will be pretty archaic. JAY, PSN DOES have group voice chat and video chat. And I DO have a PS3, PSN name = KAL-EL1217. Ask Maddens_Raiders if you dont believe me, he invited me to group video chat a few times man. Not talkin out of my ass, just stating the facts.
you seriously believe that? lol nice try bro. Live invented this sh*t they are not going anywhere man.
All I have to say is screw "10" lists. I don't care about 10 best games, 10 worst games, 10 features we'd like to see, 10 features we wish weren't there, top 10 new IPs, top 10 old IPs, top 10 sequels, bottom 10 sequels, what the F ever.
When I said it would be cool if home was added I didnt mean I would want microsoft to completely overhaul xbox live and build it around home. I would still want the gameplay and chat and everything to remain how it is. I was thinking more of HOME blade so to speak. You are absolutely right that you can do all the stuff I said in the previous post in real life however I was simply saying that it would be refreshing to do something with your friends on the game other than play gears of war,crackdown etc. And in regards to what one bubble jin kazama said, does the PSN really have group chat and group video chat? I think he was talkin out of his ass but can someone other than him who actually has a ps3 confirm this because that would be news to me.
yeah. if it was a blade that launched the application, optioanl.than i am all for it. I am not too familiar with Home. Has it even launched yet? I want to get the xbox webcam for my 360 and my laptop. but it would be nice if 360 had videochat. its not like msn is another company. if it was yahoo or something i could understand bare functions, but its all MS.
no web browsers cause they want you buy cps
Love the custom soundtracks but how about going one better and adding custom sound effects adding different sounds to games would make it cool
How the hell would you do that? Add sound effects to a game? That would require access to game code. Certainly not a dashboard update. Maybe I'm not understanding you correctly.
I try to play tetris world today on my 360 but it didnt let me .
There were a couple of good requests in that article, but it was a bit embarrassing to read through it and see WAY TOO many grammatical errors. If you're going to write an article, and know that writing is not your strong suit, have someone proof read for you. It just makes ya look silly. Also- Group Private Chat would be my most wanted feature.
