Not the original poster, but my two stream-of-consciousness cents: In particular, LET ME HAVE A CONSISTENT LINK TO WHAT IS ON SALE. Sometimes there is a link, sometimes there is nothing at all. Logged on yesterday because the big backwards compatibility sale was on, and there was no indication anywhere I looked on the Xbox store that it existed. I ended up going through the BC section of the store, clicking the interesting ones and seeing if the price was discounted. Pretty sure the list was not complete. Logged in today, hey now there’s a button but I bought stuff yesterday. Yep, the main BC list was definitely not complete. Oh wait, I see a little, non-colored “deals” button by my pic as long as I’m at the absolute top of a page. Not sure how many times I have specifically looked for such a thing and missed it. That’s design language that tells me you feel obligated to provide it, but don’t want it used much. I find the whole sale-buying process to be less than optimal, and I buy a lot of stuff.
Also, it would be nice to have a shopping cart rather than buying everything piecemeal (clearly the 360 stuff has tech issues behind its awkwardness, but I’m still impressed it’s there at all, so that gets a pass). And more sorting options and discoverability would be very nice. Like genre views or tags, new release spotlights (being first on a reverse chronological list is not a spotlight IMO), or a watch or wish list with email sale notifications (maybe even a notice on XB1 login?). Also, if I click on an item when I’m deep in a list, it is quite frustrating to not be put back where I was when I exit the item. Re-scrolling down is tedious and punishes the customer for being curious and exploring. That’s the sort of thing that Sony fixed between the awful PS3 store and the reasonably functional PS4 store.
