    • When You Download a Game Give the Option to Download All DLC You Own for That Game

      When downloading games you already own, it's easy to grab the game itself, but finding and downloading all the DLC you own for it can be a chore. Particularly if you own a season pass, this can be tedious. It'd be nice to have an option to install the game and all the DLC you own, too, with a single click.

        • Allow Chronological Game Sorting for Series

          Add ability to sort my games library by chronological order in addition to alphabetical or other filters. (Ex. Tomb Raider games are not in chronological order under alphabetical sorting since they are not numbered and aside from the first reboot title, each games’ title begins with something other than Tomb Raider.)

          • Allow Sorting of Games by Digital and Disc-based Games

            It would be nice to seperate my games into two lists. One of games I need the disk for, and one of games that are downloaded and can be played as is.

            • Ignore the Word "The" When Sorting Alphabetically

              Some films in the Films and TV app ignore the word "The" when sorting alphabetically. I would like all Films to behave this way. Additionally, this would be useful when sorting your games

              • Ability to Identify Games Acquired Through Subscriptions Like Game Pass, Games With Gold, or Purchased

                You've got a great library of games, but you can't remember which games were installed through Game Pass, which games were part of your Gold Subscription, or a birthday gift. Let us know how important it is to identify where games came from by voting, and tell us in the comments how you'd like to see this idea work!

                  • Split the Ready to Install list into "Full Games" and "Demos"

                    Right now, "Ready to install" shows all possible games that are ready to install, including demos. Let's make it a little easier to filter out the Demos, or maybe other types of games. Vote for this idea to show us how much you like it, and use the comments to tell us how you'd like it to work!

                      • Allow Grouping of Games into Folders

                        I know this is something already being implemented if a form, but I would like to be able to group games into folders just like a Windows PC. I'd like to have folders for Far Cry, Halo, Call of Duty, etc to keep these together while trimming down on the size of my games list, making everything more organized overall.

                          • An Option to Choose Which Games or Apps Will Update Automatically

                            With bandwidth caps in place I had to disable auto updates ( I have over 500 games installed), but if we could have the option to choose which games and apps we want updated that would be gold.

                            • Ignore Copyright and Trademark Symbols in Game Titles When Sorting

                              At the moment some games with multiple installments like Far Cry look like they're incorrectly sorted because you apparently consider copyright and trademark symbols to be part of the game name.

                              Please ignore these symbols for sorting.

                                  • Allow Tiles to Be Moved And Arranged, Similar to Pins

                                    Many of the games you own in “Games” are a mess alphabetically. For example, some even have “Full Game” at the beginning of its title so they are all alphabetized by F instead of the true title.

                                    Please give us the ability to arrange and customize the order of our games and apps in the actual games and app sections...not just pins.

                                    Thanks!

                                    • Filter Games and Apps by Genre

                                      With digital sales making it cheap and easy to amass a large library of content, it'd be nice to have an option to sort your library according to game genre. RPG, FPS, RTS, Adventure, Horror/Survival, etc.

                                      • Option to Limit Bandwidth on Downloads and Updates

                                        Some people only have limited download speed and would like the option to limit speeds to as low as possible so updates downloading in the background won't use the entire connection up. I have 10Mbps internet (fastest available) and when I update my games I can't do anything else.

                                        Many of us could keep all our games&apps updated if there was an option to limit downloads to 128/256/512/768kpbs or higher for people with faster connections that still get used up entirely by the Xbox.

                                        • Add an Option to Pick the Console Where Content Is Installed

                                          Give users the option to pick a specific console to install to.

                                          Case-in-point: I have two Xbox One consoles in my home. I use the console in my living room that is not my “home” console, and my wife uses my “home” console, (she shares my gold subscription). When I buy or install something, it downloads to the non-home console AND the home console.

                                          We need an option to pick where the content gets installed. If Amazon can give us this option for eBooks, we should be able to get it for games.
