MICROSOFT Fix the XBOX One Party Chat,Join Friends Games and UI

Dear Microsoft

Can you fix the XBOX One?

We all love the 360 and how easily we could locate our friends, join there games and casually pop in and out of game and party sessions. It was slick and natural...It was something we all took for granted. It was what set the XB360 aside from the PS3

Now...we have all forked out the better part of half a grand on a Xbox One, excpecting at minimum for it to be atleast as good as the 360....but alas no.

Trying to "party" up is horrific, regular fails, catastrophic problems with NATs and having to select "enable party chat" before each party session (when its obvious i want to talk to my friends) ...well its just poor.

Set aside from the awful party system, WHY CANT I JOIN A FRIEND? Having to create a party, then having to wait for the system to generate a invite or fot it to attempt to dump me into the game. Id just like to find my online friend on a list and press "join" ...is that hard?

UI - UNUSABLE INTERFACE, dropping back out to home screens to check missed messages, add friends, snapping/unsnapping, etc etc...its all shirt and no trousers....who tested this? Honestly, I have more fun navigating the self assembly instuctions of a korean flat packed multigym than using this "USER FRIENDLY" OS

So, in summary....

Microsoft . Fix the Party System, Fix the UI ...and most of all let me join my online friends. We had all before and we took you for granted...please come back...we love you x

  • Anonymous Party chat should be Xbox One AND Xbox 360 inclusive - I pay for Xbox Live so I EXPECT XBOX LIVE!

  • lance rhdenizer The best feature of live was the party system this new system is terrible and awkward and wheres some audio options the 360 made it easy to configue how you wanted things to be heard there are no options to have chat come through speakers or headset or both why not?
