Kinect Share Disabled, Takes Many Achievements With It

    Just remember GFWL support ended in July of 14 and the achievements still work. Same with Windows Phone 7 achievements, they also still work and that ended in October of 14 (yes I know some games don't work on Windows M10).

    So to say that 360 stuff is just going to end is a bit preemptive and a bit off topic as well. These games losing a website link is no different than facebook tied in achievements.

    What sucks was the lack of warning, though like the recent EA server closer announcement there has been ample time to work on the games.

    I should have would have could have beat all these easy games a long time ago. Oh well, you win some and you lose some. Maybe not all of these were easy.
    I have 9 usa 360`s set up, 4 pal 360`s, 3 japan 360`s and 2 xboxones set up and the girlfriend calls me crazy.

    Windows Phone 7 works, when the planets align. There are constant issues with the old passport system with connecting to your profile, and marketplace purchases are essentially broken unless you use the manufacturer applications instead of the Microsoft built-in one. But, they still "work" when they work. wink

    You've all had these on the back burner FOR YEARS and are now mad? They didn't take long to get, should have done it by now if you cared.

    Why should anybody spoil other people's interests?

    Especially when it is connected with a personal hobby...

    Maybe one day i can also learn how to make my mind up for other people who are not worthy of doing so because it has become such an important thing in my life.

    I wonder what the technical difficulties might be to make 360 games compatible with the Xbox One Kinect. Surely one or two staff members should be open to that kind of challenge, right?

    Or do i whine in the wrong direction now?

    One day you can't sign online with GFWL. Few months later Microsoft will tell us about they closed servers "today".

    Not sure why people think this will happen. GFWL uses the same for services as any XBL enabled device. They can't just shut down GFWL exclusively.

    People still got Sharing Is Caring on Kinect Adventures two months after Kinect Share shut down by enabling kinect share in their privacy settings. Can anyone confirm that this still works? If it does I might start this finally!

    (sorry for off topic, but...) Dah! I saw the notice when Xbox Live messaged me. I have the photo achievement in Dance Central 3, but not Dance Central 2! I'm not able to complete Dance Central 2!

    There are actually quite a number of people that have done this achievement off-line.
    How is this possible?
