Xbox One Achievements Don't Unlock While Offline

Playing games on Xbox One while offline? You'll have to wait for the notification to pop. (Xbox One)

Really. That's pretty stupid!! Surely this can be fixed in an update?

This is probably just some legacy stuff from the original plan. I am sure it will get taken care of but people do need to be loud about stuff like this otherwise it will be deemed acceptable and nothing will get done.

I am happy people was loud about the mp3 and dlna issue with the PS4, now that is getting fixed. Being quite about a problem never helps the consumer. Most companies only do what needs to be done and not what is the right thing to do.

Actually that is by design!


The simple reason is people used to unlock achievements offline, and then go online to have their achievement synced online. This means that it was way easier to cheat your way to achievements by external applications.

This new way, ensures that you met the criteria to receive the achievement verified online. The achievement for the most part is really only useful if your console is connected online for others to see.

So this seems like a well thought out engineered effort.

This is how the ps3 works yet, most ppl laughed at the ps3.

All of a sudden this is a good thing?


That is where the disagrees comes from.

MS trying to forced the online still I see..
Gamer1982  +   733d ago
Its not a big deal soon as you connect they pop up. Meaning they are server based rather than local based. This is to take stress off the machine. We all know the less this thing has to load up the better right now as it needs all the memory it can get in the fight against PS4.

Good to know the xbox one can't even handle its own achievements. The machine will explode if they aren't offloaded to the cloud.
LXGYT  +   733d ago
The achievements are all stored on the cloud now, i know you guys dont want to hear it but what this means is that achievements are no longer tied to the disk and developers can go in and tune achievements whenever they feel need be, hope this clears this up, its not a problem in my opinion

in reality not a big deal, just kinda lame... its just little stuff that makes you think, "they didn't think this through, did they?"

lets hope its patched, but still, very minor lol

Agreed. A patch will fix that, easily.
Gamer1982  +   733d ago
There's nothing to fix.. Having them online is better for the console as it uses less memory leaving more for games. Some people are never satisfied..
WeAreLegion  +   733d ago
That's just not true.

Is that a joke? How much memory as u say, can a little popup message take? Ur being ridiculous

This offnline complaining is just dumb. NOBODY is buying an xbox one to play offline.

Plenty of people are. Not everyone spends their time online.

That was a really stupid comment...

Sorry, I sometimes forget that mommy and daddy bought everything for you. -comment from my friend without Internet. Lol, idiot.

People can no longer unlock achievements on the computer and cheat gamerscores, im glad they did this.
sincitysir1  +   733d ago
U can cheat on the Xbox?
cr33ping_death  +   733d ago
out of curiosity...how do people cheating their gamerscore affect you to the point that you defend this?

It does appear to be a rather overt design.

My beef with the new cheevo system is when I'm on my 360, my friends' xbone cheevos don't show and aren't listed when I compare games. There's just one generic "xbox one" banner that has a gamerscore beside it that combines all xbone cheevos into one score.

Nothing happens when I click on it either, it won't let me see what next gen games they're playing and getting gamerscore in. Sucks considering on the ps3 I can still see my friends' vita and ps4 trophy accomplishments in full. Hope they patch this. Segregates the community a bit
