View Thread: Visual Studio Achievements; they're not Xbox live right?
  • User profile image

    @Dan276: Hey, now that the thread is back on topic...

    No, we aren't going to hook these achievements up to the Xbox Live system. If, at some point, the Xbox team decides to make an open sdk for app achievements, and decides to go away from games and open it to anything at all.. then maybe we'll consider it. Until then, we are just a little *fun* silo of achievements on our own. Perhaps we should have just called ourselves VS Badges to avoid the confusion, but we really, really, really didn't think anyone would expect that building a Windows Azure site would add to your gamerscore (note the gamer in there)

    Thanks for playing though!
