Xbox One Acheivements System Will Be Getting "Fundamental Changes" Says Microsoft

Xbox One Update Available Soon With Important Changes

"We're going to go big in the area of letting people show off and represent their gaming history and the type of gamer that they are, far more than we do with Gamerscore", said Ybarra on the subject of what the Xbox team wants to see the Achievement system become.

The Xbox beta app is somehow like a Windows Insider Fast ring version of the regular Xbox app.

Microsoft explained in a blog post that it's "simplifying entry" for the program, allowing those specifically interested a chance to test updates. Tell us what you think below.

The idea is certainly interesting, and it's about time someone looked at how achievements can better fit into today's games.

One important note for users who select enrollment in the Delta group to be aware of: a portion of Delta Insiders will receive preview builds earlier than others, based on a random lottery process. Since you will be downloading updates regularly, you will use up a lot of bandwidth, from 4 GB a month at the lowest Omega ring to as much as 80 GB monthly in Alpha. Just to celebrate this kind of video game, Microsoft is also planning to implement some of its complementary new features.

As detailed in a post on the Xbox Insider forums, the refresh gives consistently active Xbox Insiders the chance to experience the latest updates, while revoking access to those no longer active. Those with multiple consoles can enroll each one individually. The Redmond Giant has continued with the Live Tiles on its Windows 10 and Windows Phone and is in plans of introducing the Live Tiles for Xbox One users.

To celebrate the announcement Microsoft has released the following trailer showcasing some the games available to play. You will be able to play games and listen to your favorite music at the same time, on the same device.
