Xbox One Achievements Detailed

Hot from the official unveiling of the Xbox One console, new details about the next-generation of Microsoft hardware are still trickling through to Electronic Theatre. The latest comes in the form of new details on the Xbox Live Achievements system, wherein Microsoft Studios are inviting gamers to ‘unlock a new generation of achievements.’ (Microsoft, Mobile, PC, Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE, Xbox One)

How about letting us spend our achievement points to buy arcade games etc?

That would turn off developers....why would i want your achievements lol?It would only work if Microsoft paid them for accepting "achievement money" lol.

It could work if MS let you do it with games that MS themselves developed for that reason.

while I love the concept, I have to agree with muffins, developers would be the first to cry foul

Even if an arcade game was 1000 pts, I could get 87 "free" games. Dont think this system would work.

Imagine if arcade games emptied all their cash out for you when you got a 1CC.

A couple of ideas I am guessing we will see with the new achievement system.

Limited edition achievements: Developers can add an achievement on a specific day, for that specific day only. For example, they can add an achievement on New Years Eve 2013 for detonating a bomb in the sky. Get the limited edition 'Happy New Year 2014: Fireworks' achievement.

Day One achievements: Even more insideous, achievements that can be earned for playing the game on release day, that gets removed from the achievement list on day 2.

Company veteran achievements: You already got an achievement for beating Assassin's Creed IV and Watch Dog. When you then finish Splineter Cell, you get a 'U Bi a veteran' achievement for defeating three different Ubisoft games.

I'm sorry, but as a completionist I find the idea of limited edition achievements to be horrible; I don't want to permanently miss out on a award because I was busy at work or something.
Day one achievements are pretty bad too, they sound like just another cynical marketing exercise.
patsrule316  +   917d ago
I don't think these are ideas I want to see, but I think they will try to do some (if not all) of these. They said they can dynamically add achievements, and have achievements across the platform, so that is what I think they will do.

I can't tell if I am getting disagrees because people don't like the idea or if people think they won't happen. I don't like them either, but I do think they will happen.

Haha.That would be great if Sony offered a "Welcome aboard" trophy to people who Sign up a new PSN.

iliimaster  +   917d ago
whats kinda scaring me is that shouldn't of sony came straight out and say we are NOT blocking used games or requiring full game installs ? or they keeping quite so M$ and their DRMboxone can't change their minds?
matrixman92  +   917d ago
good bye my 100,000 gamerscore...i'll miss you when I switch to ps4
Jek_Porkins  +   917d ago
This was something I was very worried about, I spend so much time getting almost 100k Gamerscore, I wanted to carry everything over. That is 8 years of Achievements to have unlocked, glad they are evolving them with the next Xbox.

Yeah I hit 115k put in a lot of time getting into all the gfwl ments now it will be good to see what they do with them.
