    Watch other people game? Yeah that sounds like a great idea, I barely get any free time as it is but why spend it enjoying my hobby when I can watch someone else do it.... for 100 hours roll

    Multimedia achievements carry no Gamerscore.

    Indeed. "Gamerscore is for Games". Microsoft's words, not mine.
    Gamers have two hobbies: Playing games, and complaining about those games

    And there it is. The death of achievements as we know them. WE ARE GAMERS! I have an iPad for all this shit.

    Twitch and Netflix being behind additional paywalls (xbox live Gold) is the main reason I switched to ps4 for the new generation of consoles. It'll be nice not paying for internet twice.

    A) You aren't paying for your internet twice, you ate paying for access to Microsoft's XBL servers/content, just as you would pay for access to Netflix's servers/content.

    B) You need to pay for access to Sony's servers for online multiplayer on the PS4 anyway, so your argument is moot unless you have absolutely no intention of going online for multiplayer.

    It would be nice if Twitch didn't manage to break the 360 version.

    That would mean he couldn't access those features anyway if he didn't pay could only play single player games he's better off getting a PS3 for what he wants.

    A) You're right, there will be zero games on the Xbox One, just the ability to watch other people game.

    B) Gamer's what? What does Gamer possess that irritates you so much?

    Kinda awesome and also kinda lame. Easy achievements but not really... achievements.
    Do you even know what an idiom is? Uh, It's a colloquial metaphor?

    Is this what marketing comes down to nowadays?

    Incorporate a feature that some people may use, but oh no, ADD DEM CHEEVOS and everyone pops a kickstand over it.

    Gaming today baffles and infuriates me sometimes.

    Ain't that the truth Detroit...screeeew this, the app is nice but the achievements being added...completely defeats the purpose of why I wanted them in the first place. As a completionist, I don't want achievements just because they're called "Achievements" no...it dates back to me finishing all my games 100% on the earlier generation of consoles (namely, N64/PS1 and Gamecube/PS2...though of course I played NES, SNES, Sega Genesis...etc.). An achievement to me is proof that you went through and beat the hell out of a game. I especially like achievements for hard difficulties, that means you managed to go through that game and survive despite whatever bullcrap was thrown your way.

    Achievements for watching stuff? Even if they're 0G...it's still a needless hook to get people to use apps. Again, I'm addicted to achievements for GAMES for the reason of having done EVERYTHING in those games, not achievements just for the sake of them being achievements.
