Life was pretty standard, and then Xbox arrived to make it exciting! Xbox has a robust online community and is quite more extensive than most other gaming console brands.
Microsoft has taken Xbox and gaming to the next level with its attractive graphics and user-friendly technology. Xbox, due to its early hold in the online gaming industry, has created a name for itself, not only in the market but in many households as well.
An Xbox achievement in simple words means ‘goals.’ Such goals are included in almost every Xbox one and Xbox 360 game. You must complete tasks in a contest to achieve these goals. As a Xbox Live reward, you get gamerscore points.
You may feel a little pressure, but don’t worry, this is entirely optional but if you do decide to take it seriously, remember to use the Xbox achievement tracker feature. It allows you to keep track of all of your achievements.
The best part of Xbox achievements is that you can use them to redeem rewards on Microsoft Rewards. Don’t forget you can only unlock achievements if you are connected to Xbox Live. The rewards definitely won’t be enough to sustain you and make a living, but it’s a little something for your time!
Xbox Gamerscore is earned through completing achievements. That means that it’s a free pass to brag all you want about your mad gaming skills! (No kidding). Apart from that, it can also be used to share the gamer’s habits and progress.
If you want to build a gamerscore quickly, one of the smartest ways is to go through the Xbox 360’s game catalog. Many of the games from this catalog are easy and help you gain 1000 achievement points without breaking a sweat.
A monthly Gamerscore leader board is available in the achievements hub. It shows the progress made in the past 30 days by you and your friends. On Xbox Live, you can see your improvement and compare your headway.
When you sign up for Microsoft’s Xbox live rewards program, you will be able to earn gems based on your ‘achievement tier’, which in turn can be redeemed, with credit in the MyRewards shop.
Achievements and Gamerscore keep you on your toes and are a way for companies to ensure that you don’t get bored while you play your favorite games.
However, there was controversy about gamer scores and how they inflate when it comes to more accessible games and how it is hard to earn more when harder games are in consideration. After all, All is fair in games and war!
After all of this, the question erupts: is it all worth it? Well, it depends on you. But various surveys show that people love completing a video game and enjoy the rewards. Still, they find it more exciting when there are continuous challenges and rewards after completing the game.
This way, they can keep playing the game without getting bored, and it gives them the satisfaction that they aren’t succeeding in the same monotonous game.
