Microsoft making HUGE changes to THIS popular feature

According to a press release, Microsoft announced the Xbox Live Creators Program would allow game designers to publish games to Xbox One and Windows 10 with a simplified certification process and no concept approval required.

"In this release, we've eliminated the wait between Home, Social, and My Games and Apps by consolidating them into one dashboard experience", Microsoft's Mike Ybarra explained. On this occasion, the manager talked about the future of Xbox, focusing on some novelties for the Achievements system. Since achievements (sort of) achieved global popularity during the Xbox 360 era, however, we've seen them drastically dip in popularity as things like competitive ranking systems have become more popular across the world.

Microsoft has officially launched the Xbox Live Creators Program, this program has been put in place for developers to directly publish games to the Xbox One or Windows 10 Store. For $600 you can buy both consoles and two games, and for $500 you can buy an Xbox One X and no games and if you want to buy two games at least another 100 bucks so the value proposition is ONE CONSOLE TWO GAMES or TWO CONSOLE TWO GAMES.

But most of these games aren't just for the Xbox One; you can play them on Windows 10 as well.

Elliott was accused of domestic violence before the start of his rookie season a year ago . A suspension for Elliott would be a key loss for Dallas to start the regular season.

"We can do a lot more to reflect and let people show their gaming history and their status", said Ybarra. In 2014, Ray Cox IV became the first player to hit 1 million Gamerscore and was given a lifetime Xbox Live Gold Membership for his efforts.

The more you have been into the Xbox One Insider Program, the more you can advance. Hopefully it is one of those situations where they give us something we didnt know we wanted until it was actually here.

The nine games include Animal Rivals: A party game for up to four players, Kubic: A puzzle game that makes you create optical illusions and Crystal Brawl: A 2v2 capture-the-flag style local multiplayer game.

What do you think about the potential change in how Microsoft handles the achievement system? What do you want them to leave alone?
