  • What's that in Gamerscore again?
    Also I wish I could delete games and also display 100%ed games easier, that's more important to me.
  • From TrueAchievements.com I have unlocked about 6500 achievements with a gamerscore of 137,000. More to go, more games, small money, small time.
  • Hats Up, Sir!!!
  • Thank you @Siang
  • Not bad. :) I only have 12,608 achievements (250,448gs)
  • THIS!!! I downloaded a game that went free two years ago on WP and a few months later their servers shut down thus making impossible to unlock the rest of the chivos. I hate having non-complete achievement lists
  • Create , tinker, aoe:o , flight, & 1vs100 are my sol achievements
  • Yes yes yes
  • I have 284000
  • 13,335 achievements - over 13%! =D
  • Windows 10 has a few in the Beta Minecraft. I was amused when I was playing it the other night while my wife was watching TV on the Xbox One. Every time I unlocked an achievement on my Surface Pro a notification would pop up on the Xbox One. I didn't know it responded that quickly.
  • Lol, that's funny! Your internet must be fast if it responds that quickly!!!
  • Did the a bah-doop sound and banner show up on your Windows 10 PC when you unlocked an achievement in Minecraft: Windows 10 edition? It didn't for me. Then I went to the achievement list in the Xbox app for Minecraft and it was entirely in Japanese. Was it in English for you?
  • I have completed just 85 Xbox live achievements and gamer score of 760 with 10 Xbox titles I tried
  • Can anyone tell me what's the point of achievements?? I mean, you accomplish difficult stuff in games.. Then what?? What's next??
  • It's bragging rights mainly. There are also small rewards given as far as "cash back" on purchases made through the digital store.
  • It's also an additional incentive for us to play the games. You know...those of us who actually enjoy gaming for gaming and have moved on from that childish mindset of yours ;) Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I have literally no idea what you are talking about. What 'childish mindset' are you referring to?
  • Me either, its childish to play games so people attempting to get these virtual achievements (the name says it all really) are the ones who're childish.
  • I wouldn't say it's childish. I mean it's like getting the high score in an arcade. You get the bragging rights. You get to put your initals up for everyone to see and try to beat.
  • Error pbr9002 when purchasing : (
  • Sorry to ask this here; Couldn't wait...   I downloaded the windows 10 update., it finished preparing for installation. Then asked me to restart. I did restart.. But nothing happened.. My machine just rebooted.. it didnt install the update.. 
    Waat am i doing wrong? please help even though I asked this is wrong place. 
  • My bad. I couldn't even wait for few mins... It automatically opened a popup after few mins.. Now installing the os update... Sorry for the trouble.....
  • Gotta unlock 'em all.
  • Hahahaha I dunno why this absolutely make my smile hahaha
  • Beat me to it.
  • Wow, some of my friends play games waaaay too much if they have over 50% of all available gamer point. EDIT: Nevermind, that 100,000 total achievements not gamer points/score.
  • I first read it that way too. So you are not alone.
  • There are 669,000 apps in windows store!!!
  • Achievements and Gamerscore really engage me to play every game I get, even if it isn't the most addictive game. It gives a great progression system that is universal over every gamer. It's a really great system.
  • I am surprised to read that the dead GfWL still has more achievements than WP
  • Games for Windows live is bigger than WP?... Oh my...
  • By wasting tons of dollers!!
  • Does it have an actual price/discount for completing the achievement? If not, why bother.
