1. change the name (too late)
2. make it more powerful (too late)
3. reduce the price by $150
4. pay for exclusives not for timed-exclusives
5. focus on other types of games not only shooters
1 line break(s), 160 characters allowed

1: Ditch mandatory Kinect. (I would unbundle them. No more selling Kinect and X-bone together) and immediately drop the price $100 to $399 U.S.

2: Drop all advertising that refers to the X-bone's ability to connect to TV. I would keep the feature, but it would not be a selling point (no more so than Blu-ray or DVD playback is)

3: Implement full, complete and total Backward Compatibility with Xbox 360 and Original Xbox games.

4: Implement a "Kinect buy-back program" where those gamers who were forced to purchase a Kinect bundled with their X-bone get to send their kinect back to MS if they desire to do so and would receive $100 credit on Xbox live marketplace to purchase games and content.

5: Trade-mark the name X-Bone and create a new logo including a Skull and Crossbones in Xbox green. Naming the console the "Xbox One" was such a bone-headed maneuver, but the name is here to stay, as is "X-bone" so may as well make lemonade.

6: Immediately fire Larry Hyrb and hire a new PR spokesperson (preferably one with large hooters) who will then do a press conference, sincerely apologizing to the videogame industry as a whole for what MS tried to do to it, then announce a free game from Live Marketplace for anyone who has an Xbox Live account. We're Sorry! We won't pull that [EXPLETIVE DELETED] again, we promise!

7: Buy more developers. Struggling developers who have undeniable talent, but merely need the backing of a benefactor with deep pockets. Give them free reign to develop games for the Bone. Whatever they wish. I would make a serious offer to buy Bioware from EA, but I doubt they would go for it.

8:I would open up Xbox Live so that developers can use their own servers if they desire to do so. This is so cross-platform gameplay could be implemented across all platforms..PC, Xbone, Playstation and Nintendo.

9: I would remove all non-game content from behind the Xbox Live paywall. Only specific multi-player games would cost money to be able to play them. And even then, not all. 3rd party games on their own servers would be up to the developer to charge for them.

10: Xbox Live Advanced would implement an Instant game library and provide new games for free every month. All original Xbox games that were developed by Microsoft studios would be available for download for free to all XBLA members. Select Xbox 360 games from MS studios (and participating 3rd party developers) would also be free.

11: create a collaberation between all three console manufacturers to develop the ultimate fighting game and call it CONSOLE WARS, it would include signature characters from Xbox franchises, Playstation franchises and Nintendo franchises in a no-holds barred brawl to the death. Available on all platforms. 3rd party companies would be encouraged to enter their signature characters as well (and 3rd party characters can change allegiance as appropriate to their franchise)

That's what I would do if I was the boss of Xbox!
I don't always Troll on the internet. But when I do, I make it the Xbox-One forums...

You know ppl your ideas are great but many of you would flunk out of the company in a matter of a few years with your strategy.

Reduce price...good luck making a profit on the hardware.

Recall systems to make them more powerful...yeah give them free consoles and waste a few million.

Lower game prices...good luck getting publishers to make games for your console.

Get rid of kinect...That's one of their things. Without kinect it would sell horribly.

I think I covered most of them.

Getting new IP and exclusives is good however.
