I hope you guys will have an Xbox One app in the works. I currently use the PS3 app and I think it is fantastic (although it does crash sometimes when starting a new video).

I'll be switching to the PS4 app next week assuming there are no glitches, but the Xbox One seems like the best console for watching movies. It would be great if you guys had an app on that, and it integrated with Kinect voice controls.

Thanks!

There's already a thread related to this suggestion: /forumtopic-692671/what-device-do-you-want-crunchyroll-on

I hope it gets there eventually, but I won't be jumping on a One for at least a couple years.

Why would it be any different playing a movie on the X1 instead of a PS4? They both run in 1080p and have Blu-Ray drives.

You obviously have not been paying attention to the console wars in the media...

The Xbox One essentially is a media platform that plays games

The PS4 is a game system that does a little media

So the difference really is that Xbox is better suited for handling playing anime while Skyping a friend, and running a game in the background, where the PS4 is good for sharing your conquests in gaming online, and watching anime when your done playing.

Also the voice controls are superior, as like Google's they have a learning capability programmed in.

EDIT: Also, I'm completely for this, please hurry up and make an app!

If you guys ever do decide to make an Xbox One app, do you think you might consider doing some achievements for it?

Just wondering since apps like Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Fox give achievements for watching your first episode or watching so many episodes in a row non-stop, or finishing a series. I was wonder if that Crunchyroll might follow suit? Sure, it's silly, but it does provide some incentive to keep watching. Say something like:

Achievement: Marathon Runner

And it pops if someone watches an entire anime series, non-stop (except for pausing), from beginning to end. I would block-off some of my weekend to attempt something like that. It's just icing on the cake is all.

I've never seen that on the 360, and it just sounds like it's encouraging unhealthy behavior.

That's because they are only doing it with Xbox One apps. It's one way to get people to use the media features of the Xbox One.

You could run the 360 through the One's HDMI pass through, couldn't you?

In truth, you could. I'm currently doing that. However, it means you have to have two consoles running at once. I would assume though most people asking for the Xbone app are like me, and want to use the Xbone's improved voice commands. Either that, or they've unplugged their original Kinect in favor of the new one. I had to unplug mine because when I say "xbox, pause" both my consoles listen to the command. As well, I'd think some CR fans only own the Xbone, so running CR through the HDMI pass through isn't an option, unless you're running a PC through it.

Regardless of reason, I think an Xbone CR app is a great idea. Hopefully it's snappable, and achievements would be nice, but I would personally really like to simply say "xbox, go to crunchyroll" and not have to switch the console to TV, and turn on another device, find its controller/remote, etc.
