Achievements used to be something to be proud of.

Now it will just showcase what a no-life loser you are, when it's just about how many commercials and TV-shows you've been watching.

How can MS patent it when Sony already does it with Torne?

Conan-O-Brady1545d ago

Because they're M$, it's what they do.

Bullcrap. They don't already do it or else MS wouldn't of patented it. One thing for sure is those achievements won't be showing up on Sony's TVs because nobody buys them

They should also offer achievements for eating Doritos and chugging down litres of Coke as you sit there... the advertisers would love this... scaru thing is, it could actually happen.
