Back in January, i started a thread asking people what things they would like Microsoft to do for the XBox 360 in terms of updates, patches or accessories.

Since then we have had some updates as well as alots of other stuff, so i thought i would ask people again, to see what you guys want


Here's what i am after

1. On the dashboard, instead of itjust saying 'PLAY DVD. PLAY GAME or PLAY CD' i would like it to actaully say what game, film ect is in the drive, like some of the Pre launch photos showed

2. An arcade stick to play the XBox Live arcade games on. Pac Man with a controller doesn't work for me

Something that Microsoft's Xbox 360 has been sorely short of is an arcade stick, however, that is a situation that is about to change with the launch of Mad Catz's Xbox 360 ArcadeStick. Priced tentatively at $50 (£27) Mad Catz's ArcadeStick will also apparently be bundled with several full Xbox Live Arcade games, something which undoubtedly will add immensely to its value.

It's unclear which games will be included but our friends over at Joystiq have been at their magical mystical metaphorical casino again blowing their brightly colour chips at the tables and have predicted that Frogger, Galaga, and Pac-Man will be the titles that make the chop. Of course we'd rather see Street Fighter included... you never know, it might make it beatable in single player mode...

I would like to see the ability to wirelessly stream avi's from my mce pc so that I can watch the video clips that I take with my digital camera without having to faff about converting them or using third party software.

Additionally I'd like to be able stream dvd (vob) files from my pc.

Finally, when I add music to my library which seems to get picked up by Media Centre ok on my pc, I would like these additions also picked up by the extender.

Divx, Xvid, High Def H264 playback.

Of course that's not gonna happen, but it would be nice.

Hehe, and make it the size of a PS3 :eek: Think I'd prefer to just hide the brick away myself.

Make the dvd player region free would be a big plus for me, dvds look great on the 360 so it's a shame I have to have an additiona multiregion dvd player. And no the 360 noise doesn't bother me, with the projector going I barely notice it TBH.

Another small detail, I like the way you can now set the console to go to dashboard on startup as opposed to loading the game disk straight away. I'd also like to have that option for when you insert a game disk. Might sound funny but I like to click to load disk instead of it auto loading, the choice would be nice.

a rotary, carousel type dvd/game storage system that will automatically catalogue my games and films so i can select them from a list on screen and have it loading in a matter of seconds. Or the ability to back up games i own onto a couple of 500gb drives and load them from there. But obviously this wont happen due to piracy

There were rumours of the 360 showing what actual disc/game was in the drive with and up and coming update.

I would like to see customised gamer pictures for a start and not just ability to use the 360 cam.

I'd like the ability to wirelessly stream Hollyoaks/Eastenders/Holby City etc straight into my girlfriends retinas. Thus avoiding the need to keep turning my 360 off so that she can watch such cr*p!:thumbsup:

Its never gonna happen, but id love the 360 to have a removable shell, just like a mobile phone, i always thought that changeable face plates was completely pointless as they all look crap agasint the cream/white top/sides of the console.

yer you can, but i dont want a sticker, what i meant is a hard shell like the current white outside case but in a variety of colours. So you could then get a funky face plate and change the rest of the case to match.

1. Make it quieter - it's louder than our vacuum cleaner ;)

2. Enable me to stream my DVD collection via Media Center - my PC can do it, Windows Media Center can do it, my old Xboxes can do it, my mobile phone can do it, my microwave can do it ;)

im sure i wrote this in a similar thread but here goes, i would like the option to for the 360 to automatically power down after downloading stuff off live, ie i could start it downloading before i go to bed and when its finished it will turn off on its own thus saving electricity.

I'd like

  • Decent CDDB support
  • Access to a larger HD (200GB+)
  • A controller with a decent D-Pad for arcade games and beat 'em ups
  • A much better range of XLA games

Those are the main ones really. :)

Actually that'd be a damn good one, not too difficult to impliment either I shouldn't have thought. Some of the downloads take ages for me with my connection so that would be a great option.

Like the post at the top: Some way to make it less gay looking. I love the shape and styling but not the colour.

Keyboard and Mouse! I've been a PC gamer for years and this is my first console, not having much luck with GRAW using the pad.

Caching (Spelling?) to the HD or memory. The wait for races to load up in PGR3 is pretty annoying, surely it could start loading to the HD or memory as you are selecting you options?

I agree that the console should be made multi-region considering like someone said, you can go and get one for £25 from Asda

Also, does anyone reckon that an update in the future could make the console run quieter or is that a stupid question

It's mostly noisy because it spins the disc so fast. There's obvious problems with slowing that down.

I wish they'd release a patch to fix their last patch.

Basically I want the video/audio stutter fixed, like it was before the update. Its OK sometimes but I notice it more when downloading or if u play a Video trailer and press the guide and just scroll through friends/menu then u hear the audio cut out.

Or maybe my 360's just fecked up since the update, I assume I'm not the only one to notice this problem?
