Microsoft Store on Xbox One can now filter by price, star rating, and more

After going through testing with Xbox Insiders in November, new filtering options for the Microsoft Store on Xbox One are now rolling out to everyone. Now, when searching for a game or other content in the store, you'll be able to filter results by price, customer rating, capabilities, and more.

The addition of new filters means that you can now search for something like an "E" rated game at a price under $20 rated at least three stars. This allows you to be much more specific with what you're looking for than you could before with a wider range of filtering options. It may not the biggest feature to hit the platform, and some may still take issue with the search layout itself, but it's a welcome addition nonetheless.

Xbox Insiders have already had access to these filters for a few weeks, but the new setup should be rolling out to everyone now.

  • You would think such a feature would have been there from the start....
  • Yes, you would think that everything would be complete and perfect at inception.
  • Except Music.... 😬😬😬😬 SMDH
  • I'm on the X and the performance sucks in the store.
  • we know that downloading games take 6-7 hours even with the fastest internet connection. One of the many things that MSFT overlooked and didn't care about when they released Windows 10 in 2015.
  • Eh... I download games on like 30 gb in like 20 minutes at worst.
  • On the Xbox One X I average about 175Mbit/s. I call BS on your comment.
  • @RohanRonQM. Well, you're going to have wait alot longer than that if you're in the US since Net Neutrality is being shoved down the pan. Plus factor in a high contention ratio... you're pretty much screwed.
  • Agree. The Dashboard as a whole feels fine but navigating the store is terrible.
  • How so?
  • Navigating the Store now on my One X, I don't see it and my internet sucks. What's slow about it?
  • Ecstasy?
  • Been requesting this at every opportunity. Very welcome feature.
  • How about being able to build a games wish list and save it ffs!!
  • Buy a notebook and a pencil.
  • Is that you Krusty?
  • It being looked in to can you use ( download app later) on the Xbox?
  • It would be nice to filter then search. They way it implemented you have to search for something then filter.
  • Hope one of the price filters is "free"?
  • Isn't there an entire category for free/freemium games?
  • Is there a genre option now?
  • Now they just need to match the prices of the games to what they are on Steam for example to make it interesting.
  • Agreed. Digital games should be half the price of physical, not double!
  • How did you come up with that conclusion? Do you really think half the price of a game is due to manufacturing/distribution?
  • It's about time.
  • False. Cannot sort by price in Australia
  • Searching online stores is always a challenge.  The challenge becomes more difficult when there are less filters and groupings.  Searching only based on text is probramlatic, especially when there are many items in the store.  The only thing I can say is why did this take so long?  Add more.
  • A least some progress is made on the xbox digital store front, the same couldn't be said about the windows digital store... lol.
  • Finally. Now how about a wishlist feature?
