    Thankfully I did most of the Kinect Fun Labs, but there are a couple I didn't get to.
    Game On.

    Until what day is it able to unlock these achievements? No longer possible?

    Crappy that there was no warning....people bitch about EA but at least they give you enough time to get the ach's you need. The only ach's above I don't have are the Pixar Adventure Rush ones, because I don't have the game.

    The service is already closed. They are discontinued now.
    Game On.

    Looks like to me that they discontinued the feature in Fun Labs back in March. EA announces year old games getting shutdown in advance, MS announces features being shut down months after the fact. It feels like we're in an alternate universe.

    Really disappointing that no advance notice was given, wanted to start Kinect Rush and Dance Central 2 eventually.

    The Dance Central 2 achievement referenced has actually been discontinued for years. It required an upload to Facebook, so one of the API updates for Facebook broke the connection and thus discontinued the achievement.

    Wow, thanks MS!
    it's not cheating. its good tactics.

    Thanks! That's what I gathered from looking at forums but I figured I may as well add it anyway just to verify there is no way that's ever coming back now with the Kinect Share discontinuation toast I think a couple other of these games may have had achievements in a similar boat.

    They signed off their announcement of Share's discontinuation with the affirmation that "we will continue to support Kinect on for Xbox One."
    Yeah, but for how long?
  • Posted on 31 July 17 at 18:29
    That's no big deal. Just change the achievement requirements to something that is still achievable.

    It happened in Project Spark, where it compensated a huge amount of bad reputation.
