Xbox Feedback Site Now Lets You Submit and Vote on Ideas for Xbox

Here's your chance to share that great idea for an Xbox One or Xbox 360 feature you've got.

Microsoft has launched a new website today designed to allow gamers to submit and vote on ideas for Xbox platforms that they'd like to see become a reality.

Known as Xbox Feedback, the site has you sign in with your Xbox Live account and then lets you submit ideas into a variety of categories, such as apps, friends/parties, and SmartGlass. Hundreds of ideas have already been submitted, including making Xbox Music function without being snapped, allowing chat between Xbox One and Xbox 360 users, and letting the Xbox One be turned on with the SmartGlass app. Even if you don't have any ideas of your own for new features, you can vote on other people's ideas to help bring them to Microsoft's attention.

Should Microsoft decide to make use of one of these ideas, it will be indicated on the page. The idea's status will be listed as "In Progress" while it's being implemented, and will then be set to "Completed" once the feature is available.

The concept of the Xbox Feedback website is virtually identical to that of PlayStation Blog Share, which allows PlayStation fans to submit and vote on ideas they want to see Sony implement.

Since getting off to a rough start last year when it announced the Xbox One, Microsoft has been attempting to make amends with gamers. So far, the Xbox One has not sold as well as the PlayStation 4, but Microsoft has made strides by dropping the price (by way of selling the system without Kinect) and developing the ID@Xbox indie initiative, among other things. Since the Xbox One's launch, it's added fan-requested features like online notifications for friends and real name support.

Microsoft hosted its annual E3 press conference this morning, showing off many of the 2014 games we already knew about and officially announcing a new Crackdown, the Halo Master Chief Collection, and a remake of Phantom Dust.

Bring Halo over to the PC. Now that's a great idea.

Give MS your ideas so the people they pay to come up with ideas can sit around and do nothing.

If they actually cared about feedback we'd have had a Kinect-less Xbox a year ago.

This reminds me of the 'Suggestion Box' on the wall with no bottom, and directly above a garbage can.

Good for them - having a clear channel to get customer feedback is a good idea

It is still a console that hardly supports 1080p and in order to get more performance out of the console and maybe let developers have more power to get games to run at 1080p they allowed users to not have Kinect but by taking it away it stops MS from developing what was good about the device and it allows developers to forget about Kinect.  I just don't see how that is a good thing.  A good thing would have been MS getting the hardware right in the first place to support everything they wanted for the system.

Eh anyway MS this feedback site idea is good but you and owners of Xbox One consoles right now are not going to like what I have to say and that is I think you need to do a hardware revision for Xbox One as that may be the only way some people buy this thing.

Phil Spencer : "Dear loyalists, could you please tell us how to make our console not suck as bad. We're out of ideas here."


Gamer: "Listen to what people want."


Phil Spencer: "Could you please vote on that?"

Sunset Overdrive still doesn't impress me. The trailer was super freaky and fast paced gameplay (cgi) and all that...but the actual gameplay (the rail grinding thing) still looked kinda slow and just "meh".

But then again, I don't really fit in the target audience anyway.

Not the biggest fan of M$, but i was extremely surprised they focused on games the entire time (well, i didn't watch the last 20 minutes). The only thing i didn't "like" was Dance Central.


Overall, not an amazing conference, but it's actually great to see a company try and fight back. Specially since it will only benifit us gamers. And this is great move too.


Now, give me Sunset Overdrive on PC.

@Thanatos2k Honestly, by the sounds of it, if Phil Spencer was in charge over the past 3-4 years since this console was developed, I bet Kinect would have gotten tossed.

I'd give it a C. Lots of content, but mostly multiplats and no killer exclusives.

@b74kd3th Yea, at least they didn't shoot themselves in the face like they did last year.

@warriors30 I think it looked 'cool' and the graphics were great for that style, but I'm not sure if the gameplay looked fun or challenging.  Seemed way too easy to do all the stuff he was doing.

@deadline-zero0 Spoiler: The last 20 minutes were also pretty good. 

Games, games and more games. Good show.

@warriors30 @deadline-zero0 Yeah, i've read some of teh stuff i missed. Can't believe i missed The Witcher 3 live. The game's looking so good.

@jeager_titan @deadline-zero0 I know. I mean latter on. Because man, that game looked fun. If it stays exclusive i'm probably going to have to pick up, if it turns out to be good, if i end up buying an xbox in the future for the exclusives.

The Witcher 3 does look great. I'm going to preorder it for PS4
