Re: Offiical XBox (3) Launch Thread

Xbox advertisement:

"From the people who brought you the Red Ring of Death... Comes... The Always On Xbox One!! What could possibly go wrong?"

I just saw this on Kotaku... Microsoft is tinkering with the idea of giving acheivements for watching TV. Maybe it's just me, but I'm hugely opposed to this idea. When I got back into gaming, the idea of trophies and acheivements really appealed to me. Playstation Trophies moreso. This little tidbit tells me a lot about the people I meet online. Are you a Call of Duty/Madden NFL weekend warrior? Do you like old school platformers and RPGs? Or are you an Action Adventure junkie? By looking at someone's acheivements, I can pretty much tell. By giving away acheivements to people for watching TV... Not only is it pointless, but it mucks up the entire games acheivements innovation... Of which Microsoft is the inventor of!! The idea of it is kind of repulsive!!
