      • Option to Receive a Notification Pre-Ordered or Pre-Purchased Content Becomes Available

        The most common example are season passes content: when you own season pass and new DLC comes out from it, you wouldn’t know it’s released unless you follow the news and go to “Ready to install” section yourself to manually install it.

          • Option to Receive a Text or Email Notification When a Download Has Finished

            Have you ever gotten home from a long day, wanted to play your favorite game but turns out you have to wait 2 hours for it to update?! Well this idea is supposed to suppress atleast some of that rage.
            Simply put you get the option of getting a text message or email when ever an update or download happens.

            Though not every time obviously but when you choose to download/update something have this be an option below saying something like "Would you like to receive a notification?(this turns into more of a representation)

            *click the check box* if you…

            • 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.

              • Allow Users to Sort the Installation Queue

                In the installation queue on the Xbox, no more options that gets you on the right side at the bottom could have the option to sort the games and applications up or down to make it easier to sort the install queue. There are games that I want I have priority to play, but when the installation queue has approximately 60 games, and other games appear that I have priority to play, it would be nice to be able to organize the sequence of games and applications.

                • 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.
