Well I won't really work towards completion unless I really like a game now... But I still have a bit of time before this change happens... Time to finish what I have started....

But challenges...... Not to interesting.

Interesting stuff. What I'm wondering is how these challenges will affect our completion percentages on this site?

Sounds good to me! Seems they have done achievement hunters right and I don't have to worry about my completion percentage.
Your achievements are belong to us!

The question is: Will there a a separate section in my achievement list for every game with challenges or will they expand the "Microsoft Store" for pre-ordering Forza 5, Quantum Break, ...
This would totally ruin my completion.

You hear that Electronic Arts? Challenges are time based, achievements on the other hand...

Mass Effect Multiplayer had a challenge system, but it was stuck "in game". It'll be nice to see these accomplishments outside of the game. I'm ready. Bring it on!

If when you share it, it also includes a short video of how you obtained is an interesting option

Interesting additions, On a different topic, Has it been said yet if your gamer tag can be changed beetween the One and the 360 or is it stuck on the One once used for first time ?

The challenges kind of remind me of the Xbox Live rewards program or the Halo Waypoint awards...or the UbiSoft awards, just time based. Sounds good to me. Me thinks TA has some tinkering to do...

I'd be interested to hear how challenges will be handled by TA for completion purpose

I'd guess the logical answer is to treat them in much the same way as DLC, in that people have a choice as to whether they feel they are part of the game or not, but equally, as no GS will ever be involved, is there an alternative solution you'll be considering?

Personally, I just hope 'challenges' don't start to appear on 360 games!

Yes...I mean, I was "worried" about it, but not to the point that I wouldn't get the console. I won't be a day 1 purchaser, because the 360 is not forgotten and the major titles will be hitting 360 as well. I always like to see reaction once a console hits the market.

Hopefully TA will leave the "achievements" as is, and just do a special things the the "challenges" so we can keep our completion in tact. I love completing games so that would've been a big bummer if I wouldn't have been able to.

Good news, it seems.
