Changes are coming to the achievements you'll gain on your Xbox console. As for what those changes are exactly...your guess is as good as mine. Microsoft's Mike Ybarra hits fans with the typical flowery statements the company is known for below:
“We are working towards a bigger, more meaningful change about somebody’s gaming accomplishments in history, as a gamer on Xbox [W]e can do a lot more to reflect and let people show their gaming history and their status. Whether it’s somebody who only plays multiplayer in Halo 5 at a professional level, maybe they only have 2,000 Gamerscore, you want to be able to celebrate that person.This person doesn’t play a lot of games, but they’re world top ten at Halo 5. All the way to people [with over a million gamerscore]. It’s that range that we really need to look at and celebrate… we’re going to go big in the area of letting people show off and represent their gaming history and the type of gamer that they are, far more than we do with Gamerscore.”
That statement will undoubtedly spark the debate of whether or not Microsoft will actually start making achievements mean something, but I don't think that's what is being said here. To me, it sounds like Microsoft is looking for a way to highlight achievement in gaming beyond the typical achievement hunter model they've used in the past. I'm all for that, as having more data related to some of my gaming achievements would at least make me feel like I did something more important.
What changes would you like to see Microsoft implement to achievements?
