Snapping achievements coming to Xbox One

Gaming, Xbox One

In the E3 announcement pre-show, in which Microsoft is producing its own bizarre “red carpet” coverage, the company has revealed plans for the snapping of achievements on Xbox One.


The idea is that you snap the list of achievements to the sidebar, ordered how you like (so you can put the one you want to achieve at the top) and it’ll tell you how close to reaching if you are. For example, if reaching 50 kills is an achievement, a progress bar will update as you get closer.

You can even get help in game – if you the help button it’ll launch a web browser over the game and automatically search (using Google, if I recall from the screenshot, bizarrely!) for help.


More as we get it.
