For me it’s the snap feature that launched with the Xbox One. I game in my living room and I can’t really set up a laptop or PC to have tv shows playing in the background. The snap in feature was great for having a tv show or YouTube series playing while grinding in games like Destiny and Diablo 3.
A more comprehensive activity log on the Nintendo Switch. The one on the 3DS is so good!
Snap, no doubt. An excellent idea, under utilized and poorly executed.
Kinect voice commands were 10 times better than Cortana.
Anybody remember smartglass and the connectivity features?
oh man. I’ve been playing Dead Rising 3 recently and while the current app handles the phone integration ok, I think Smart Glass was way better
Snap was cool. The ESPN app allows you to watch multiple channels at once (recent update) and that made me remember/miss snap.
Snap was really cool and quick and I think before Xbox One launch they were about to offer us the ability to resell our games digitally. Would love to it that fully expanded.
Birthday welcome on the Wii U:
Snap and VMU’s for the dreamcast
Miss the Xbox 360 achievement tracking system. I hate the new system. Much more prone to bugs and failure. If the servers goes poop your achievement can stuck for month before it unlocks or never unlock at all.
I really miss XBox Live Arcade, can’t quite believe MS didn’t look to build on it with the One
Yeah, Snap was fantastic to have. Though I kinda worked around the issue since, as I have a computer monitor next to my TV where I often send cable, YouTube, Netflix, etc. in the background while I do gaming.
The ability to copy CDs to the Xbox and have the music play in the background , but not interfere with the sound effects. Playing rallisport challenge 2 with a 2 many djs album is one of my best memories of the original Xbox.
Oh god yes the achievement tracking was so much better!
The number of 100% completions on your profile page from the 360 dash.
i miss the many demos we got on 360. The recent summer game fest was awesome in this regard with over 50 demos but lastet only a week.
I miss the old Xbox Live Indie Marketplace, i got lots of wierd and strange games from there.
There’s the Creators Program page now. I wouldn’t say most games are quite on the level of the XBLIG classics, but there’s some fun stuff.
