    Ok... 0 gamerpoints, but what about completion percentage?
    It seems to me that when unlocking ANY achievement ("one hour", maybe?) of this app, the remaining nine will be counted in your "not achieved" list. cry

    And there it is. The death of achievements as we know them. WE ARE GAMER'S! I have an iPad for all this shit.
    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?
    laugh At B)
    lol. Yes the apostrophe was an accidental typo.

    At first thought I'm thinking 'Please someone kill me!'

    But then again this have its uses, for example:

    Watching someone who is exremely good to pick up tips
    Watching people who you believe are cheating to catch them out
    Watching a friend to help with locations of certain in game advantages, easter eggs and collectables

    This may not be so bad, but as for gaining achievements for it I don't see any point
    Let me find peace in my own heart and save me from my enemies.

    Crappy 'achievements' like this means I won't be downloading any apps onto my XBOXONE when I eventually get one.

    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
    ...my sentiments exactly!
    Self-reliance is the key to true freedom.

    I really don't want twitch or any other app sitting on my profile with 0 gamerscore and I can't remove it because I just watched a random clip and unlocked an achievement

    I don't even do arcade games because I don't like seeing 200g on my profile.

    This really is ridiculous these challenges and 0 g achievements tied to apps really should not be allowed. This will basically stop me from using the app in the first place which is obviously not what their intention is.

    Achievements should be for games, hopefully these will sit separately from achievements like the awards currently do on the 360

    Is TA going to count it as a game?

    I lost interest in this article at cheevo. I hate that word. That is all!
    Cheevo = Achievement
    Nite = Night

    Oh, the irony. facepalm

    On Topic: I've never heard of Twitch before, but I'll check it out. I hope it's somehow moderated... I can see less scrupulous folks streaming naked gaming videos. Or perhaps I don't understood the concept yet. lol

    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.
    I have absolutely no intention of going online for multiplayer.

    What now, tough guy?

    I only assumed because the 8 pages of online multiplayer achievements on your profile would suggest otherwise.

    But if that's truly the case and you're not making this up to win an argument on the internet, then yes, that would be a benefit for the PS4 for you.
    Gamers have two hobbies: Playing games, and complaining about those games

    Yea that is 110% "I can't even be wrong on the internet" Gotta love the people who always have to be right all the time. Guy says "tough guy" I mean how much lack of common sense does he have. That doesn't scream guilty. I never come on here to harp on people except for the DRM stuff but man what a freaking tool. He will get a One and change his gamertag that is a guarantee.

    The Achievements actually looks pretty cool. I really hope they wont make Achievements where you have to buy stuff from an app. That's the only thing I'm scared of the app Achievements.
    We at war with the army of haters and when we kill em we just smoke em like papers.

    Have a look at the killer instinct Achievement list. You'll find your horror there.
