Microsoft is set to introduce a raft of new features to its achievements system with Xbox One, including "new achievements powered by the cloud", and the integration of a system that captures gameplay footage of players' accomplishments.

As detailed in the console's fact sheet, the new system "offers more ways to earn [achievements], more frequent updates and the ability to share wins with friends.

"An expanded achievements system captures videos of gameplay and continues to grow achievements over time, and Gamerscore carries over from Xbox 360."

At least that's one thing that does, eh?

Xbox One's new digital video recording also lets players manually capture and save highlights to the cloud, and use "editing and sharing tools to post game footage to your Xbox LIVE profile and social networks."

Xbox One was unveiled by Microsoft last night. The console goes on sale later this year.

Nothing to stop them adding additional achievements, maybe have user -powered achievements or allow you to set your own achievements for your friends to have a go at. That'd be a nice touch.

This is great news amongst a day of bad press.

Those Xbox guys love dem Gamerscores & Achievements. Losing all of that play history could have been a deal breaker for a lot of people.

It's just referring to this idea of capturing gameplay as you nab the achievement, and then storing it online.

The marketing chaps prefer phrases like "new achievements powered by the cloud".

"new achievements powered by the cloud" what does that mean? how are achievements powered by the cloud, there traditionally unlocked by achieving a goal in a game not cos Microsoft says you can have it, i don't understand cloud at best of times now they seem to be purposely trying to confuse me, I only understood that the cloud was a place to store digital data ie game saves and games themselves, not power a simple system.
