Yes, The Xbox One Has Silly Achievements For Watching Movies And TV

Illustration for article titled Yes, The Xbox One Has Silly Achievements For Watching Movies And TV

As we've discussed previously, the Xbox One will have two types of achievement. There are gaming achievements, like you've always had, but now there are also media achievements, designed to reward you for spending time using your Xbox One for other stuff (and, ultimately, spending more money).

This image is our first look at how they're actually going to be handled.

It seems the two kinds of reward aren't in any way linked - Microsoft's talk at E3 indicated they'd be kept separate, and didn't talk much about it yesterday - but what you can see in the shot above says pretty much all you need to know about them. They're so stupid, and will surely be something most people only pick up by accident.

Unless...oh yeah, at E3, Microsoft also said there'd be "benefits" to gaining media achievements. That second Amazon achievement surely hinting at what some of those benefits might be.

Would be interesting to have achievements like "Game of Thrones - Complete Season One", and such. So that friends can keep track of your watchlist, and what-not-to-spoil.

For example, imagine you're playing some game, when suddenly you get the notification "Friend Unlocked: Game of Thrones - Season 3 - Episode 9", and you know you got something to talk about.
