    You might have heard of Xbox User Voice, its a website run by Microsoft where the public can leave feedback and suggest improvements for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. Other community members can then show their support for an idea by voting that feedback up. By doing so you are showing you agree with what has been suggested by someone, the more votes some feedback gets the more likely Microsoft are to implement what the community wants as it shows their is a lot of demand for the suggestion.

    You might think its unlikely the majority of feedback is going to be taken seriously. I must be honest I did think that too, I submitted an idea the day the Xbox User Voice website went live. The idea was to simply allow a background image to be used on the Xbox One dashboard, the reason been because I find it really difficult to read white text on a black background. I had long forgotten I even submitted this feedback, it appears however a lot of people agreed with me and this has pretty much been the number one / must voted up suggestion on Xbox User Voice for the last 5 months.

    Today Major Nelson has announced in his latest blog post "Custom Backgrounds – The #1 fan-requested feature is making its initial debut for preview members. For the first time, each account on your Xbox One can have a customized background. You can choose a custom color or achievement art as your background on Xbox One, with more customization options coming down the road."

    So there you have it, Microsoft do listen to the feedback suggested by the community. I have noticed quite a few other suggestions have been implemented in various updates too.

    Microsoft have quite a few User Voice forums for various products, which I have linked to below. I think its certainly worth taking the time to leave some feedback and suggestions if you think you have a good idea.

    I know a lot of people, myself included think Microsoft have lost their way a bit over the last few years. However this year I think its great Microsoft have been more open to feedback and constructive criticism, especially in regards to Xbox and Windows 10.

    Evolve is a 5 player multiplayer game developed by the team responsible for the first Left 4 Dead game, essentially a co-op game where four players hunt an alien monster controlled by a fifth player.

    The tone in Evolve feels very different from most multiplayer games. Because it’s team-based – but with so few players – it creates a more intimate feeling. You’re not fighting off hordes of undead; you’re looking for one beast. You’re not competing against a whole team of players across the Internet; you’re part of a more focused challenge. And the rounds are shorter than most multiplayer games we see, keeping everything fast-paced, and giving you more freedom for your social gaming sessions.

    If that sounds interesting signups for the Evolve Big Alpha on the Xbox One are now open, to signup the first step is to head over to the official Evolve “Big Alpha” on Xbox One registration page to fill out all of your various details, including your email address and date of birth. Once you’re done with that, all you need to do is drop the following codes into their corresponding fields:

    Referral Code: Xbox4VOne
    Registration Code: 44549-09164-02289

    That's all you need to do, then simply look out for a beta code towards the end of the month.

    Bejeweled 3 is a tile-matching puzzle video game developed and published by PopCap Games. It is the fifth game of the multi-selling Bejeweled franchise yet the third official title.

    The core objective of the game is essentially the same as the previous installments in the series. Players are supposed to swap one gem with an adjacent one to form a chain of three or more gems of the same color. When this occurs the gems disappear and a new bunch of gems which are randomly generated drop from above to fill up the empty space.

    If this takes your fancy you can grab yourself a free copy of Bejeweled 3 on Origin until 28th October.
