Something Else Cool About The Xbox One's New Achievements

Remember, the Xbox One's new achievement display does more than just look fresher. It also lets multiple people earn separate achievements from within the same game, even logged onto the same console, and display that as its own colour-coded pop-up.

Here's an example, taken from around the 11:15 mark in this video.

You'll notice at the start it tells everyone just who unlocked the achievement, both to save on confusion and, I guess, allow for a little gloating as well.

The colours will change too; while this one is a greeney... bluey... thing, Xbox VP Marc Whitten says that each player's unlock will be in their "chosen colour".

It's not going to change the face of the planet, but, hey, it's still kinda neat!

    It's just like the colours you can choose for outlook and on the windows 8 system hopefully all the same coulours as though 2 systems

    That's neat, but they REALLY need to change the sound for friend notifications vs achievement unlocking. So silly they use the same sound for both.

    If they let me choose purple it'll be the best thing ever, if not it'll be worse than hitler.

    I'd love it if my chosen colour theme on my windows phone would sync to my Xbox One - that would be awesome.
