Xbox One Apps with Achievements

Xbox One Apps with AchievementsHere is a list of Xbox One apps that include achievements. At the moment this includes Netflix, LoveFilm, 4oD, Machinima, Xbox Video, Xbox Music, Twitch, Crackle and TED.

When I first heard about the Xbox One having achievements for doing things like watching TV I thought it would completely ruin the gamerscore system which I loved so much. However, these achievements are worth 0 points. So what is the “point” exactly…?

Honestly, I’m not too sure, but for some reason I want them all! Well, not all of them, just the ones for the apps I actually use. Namely Netflix and 4oD. I’d also like to see YouTube jump onboard with this and hopefully see BBC iPlayer and the itv player join the app library soon.

I guess like with games, it’s to encourage people to explore the content and features a bit more. It’s also a cheap opportunity targeted at those who are addicted to achievements to try new apps which they probably didn’t care for too much before.

Whilst I was previously against the idea a bit, I’d say I’m now more for it. I’m VERY pleased Microsoft chose to keep them as being worth 0 points as otherwise I feel that would have broken the system. Instead, this is just a nice way to reward you for doing things you enjoy.

I’d also like to know your thoughts on the Xbox One having achievements for apps. Do you feel it’s good or bad? How do you feel it affects the gamerscore system (if at all)? Please leave your comments below.

My first games console was the Mega Drive and I've been in love with video games ever since. Over the years I've owned many systems, which I hope to cover in the future. Most of the things I write and do videos about is considered "retro", but I do enjoy playing my Xbox One and PS4 as well...
