Yesterday we reported on a rumour that concerned the recent issues with Xbox Live being responsible for wiping out some of the achievements 360 gamers played hard to collect. Despite several comments on that story indicating otherwise, word from Microsoft's Larry Hryb is that this is not the case. The following comment appeared in Larry's Twitter widget early this morning.
Regardless of what you have read, achievements are not disappearing for users
Just the tiniest of statements there, but coming from the guy who should be in the know on such things it speaks volumes. If you have experienced loss of achievements, you are probably just imagining things, because The Hryb would never mislead us. Have we heard the last of this issue? Somehow I doubt it. Thanks to Kotakuite Adam for keeping a vigilant eye on Larry's Twitter, his finger poised over the print screen button, just in case.
This afternoon Microsoft officially responded to our request for a comment, saying mostly the same thing Hryb said:
Xbox LIVE is not erasing Achievement's earned while playing on the service. If any member is having trouble with their Xbox LIVE service, we urge them to contact 1-800-4-my-xbox.
