Poll: What kind of Xbox content would you like to see from us?
Here at Windows Central, we want to be your number one source for all news pertaining to the Microsoft ecosystem. This includes the Xbox One as it is Microsoft's presence in your living room.
We have a few ideas of new content on the site, but we don't want to throw it out there and to hope for the best. Instead, we decided to let you guys vote on what you want to see since in many ways this is your guys' site.
We've rounded up a few things that we would like to try with an explanation as to what kind of substance it will include. We also are including a poll at the bottom that way you can give us direct feedback on what you would like to see. Cheers!
We want to help you guys decide what games are worth the purchase. Not only do we do this using reviews, we want to expand this using some hands-on gameplay. For example, GTA V Heists just came out. We would record us playing through the new mode and post the video to our YouTube channel with a corresponding article on the site.
Got a new Xbox One, but not too sure about what games you should purchase first. Well this type of content will be best suited for you. We can put together lists or best indie games, best first-person shooters, best racing games, etc. It's an ever-expanding type of article that can even be used for this such as game of the months and what not.
Tips and tricks
Are you stuck on a crazy hard level on your favorite platforming game? Can't seem to lose your noob status in the newest Battlefield or Halo? Well we're here to help you with that. We will make a walk-through video showing you how to be the best at your new game and upload it to our channel.
This idea is pretty much self-explanatory. We will create a gaming podcast, going over gaming news, reviews, rumors, etc. This would be a topic of further discussion of course since we would have to figure out how often we would do a podcast and whatnot.
With Xbox One's sharing features being an enormous part of the Xbox service, why not take advantage of that? This would work just like our weekly photography contests. Users submit either a screenshot or video pertaining to whatever the theme of that week's contest is.
Here is where you can make your voice heard. These are just a few of the ideas that we have conjured up and are looking into rolling out. So cast your vote to let us know what you would like for us to the most. As always, if you guys have other ideas to throw our way you can quickly hit us up on twitter for some direct feedback.

Then don't read them you crybaby. Go be butthurt somewhere else.
Guess we'll just have to wait for Build 2015.
We're running out of things to argue about, and I'm running out of things to blame MS for... Lol.
Not a problem on android...naturally...
P.S: Sorry for being absent from your streams lately, Cambridge exams coming up :(
So, when you get your hands on the 640XL please put it up against an "equivalent" device from Samsung, LG, and Apple... I'd like to see the normal device review, then on a separate post,, how it stacks up to the competition... Do it, do it, do it❗❗❗❗
But, if it's off topic they aren't allowed to respond.. But, they still get the message ;-)
I like the idea of a separate column which could cover android, Xbox, and apple. We could get a very brief link in each respective category (say Xbox for the WC audience) without going in depth...this would help to reduce any angst among those, like me who do not want so much game coverage.
It would be nice to see another serious contender in the ring.
Always appreciate the GwG updates!
Soon enough with W10 you can hopefully cover the cross platform gaming we've been promised for years!
Websites and their writers are more than welcome to take commenting privileges away if they feel like someone is not adding to the community and using personal attacks. That is their right. You have zero rights on this website or any other. All they are asking is for everyone to be respectful.
-Automotive If the site was advanced enough, maybe there could even be checkboxes to customize the feed to display only the above categories desired.
There are a lot of dedicated Xbox sites doing a good job and it would be nice if WC would focus on phones and tablets.
Gametroopers for example, a great project for WP gets almost no attention here, you haven't even managed to review every Xbox game on WP that has been released in the last months and that says a lot in my opinion.
With Windows 10 things will get even better and you personally should push Xbox instead of calling it dead or dying for like over a year now.
Back to your roots man.
Last point: Still love your other gaming stuff, just wish to read way more about Xbox on WP.
Xbox on WP is not rocketing through the roof but there is still huge potential and the situation has been worse in the past. So I think that things are finally changing and Gametroopers is the best example for that. Just look how often they update their games with new content and fixes. The whole concept is great and they deserve way more attention.
I always say that you need to push Xbox on WP, you have the power on this site to help a lot in that department.
I know your main duty is Xbox one and I understand why you keep focusing on that, I would do the same. Just don't forget your roots man and bring a little more Xbox on WP stuff.
About twitch: Always enjoy it, very chilly atmosphere. Saw half of asphalt, didn't manage to see OaC so far. Live watching is always difficult cause it starts in the middle of the night for me over here in good old Germany.
Wow long text, written on the phone. Gotta add you on Xbox one, would like to talk about that in detail.
vote for more than 2 of them I like them all, tips and tricks is my least favorite
- upcoming Windows 10 integration for Xbox One
- New hardware peripherals
- new cutting edge games
- Halolens inclusion
- game tutorials/hints
Please, NO contests and polls. I don't bother with them.
