Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Earn "Xbox Live achievements" on the Switch - Polygon

https://www.polygon.com/2018/4/12/17229492/minecraft-nintendo-switch-xbox-achievements-better-together-update

"Nintendo Switch doesn’t have a built-in achievements system, a la Xbox Achievements or PlayStation Trophies, but the Switch version of Minecraft will soon bring Microsoft’s brand of achievements to the platform."

"A set of Xbox Live achievements for Minecraft for Nintendo Switch was recently spotted by content creator Patrick Maka, who posted about the finding on Twitter, and by achievement tracking website True Achievements. The achievement list appears similar to the Xbox versions of the game as well as those on non-Microsoft platforms, like Android and iOS. (PlayStation versions of the game do not tie into Xbox Live Achievements.)"

"A representative for Minecraft confirmed to Polygon that the game’s Switch version will indeed track Xbox Live Achievements later this year."

“We can confirm that Minecraft players on Nintendo Switch will soon be able to earn achievements tied to Xbox Live once the Bedrock update is released,” a Minecraft spokesperson said in an email.

"Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition was released in 2017. The game’s Bedrock update started rolling out in September 2017 and allowed players on Xbox, mobile, VR and PC to play across those various platforms."

 

What do you guys think?
Theres rumors of Microsoft putting gamepass on everything (ps4/switch/android ect)... and now theres rumors of Xbox Live achievements for multiple games & platforms comeing.

Any Switch owners here looking forwards to xbox Live soon on the Switch? and game achievements?

Would be awesome if Microsoft could do that for all the other games on Switch too, I might actually buy/play them then!



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Who ever thought Nintendo would be OK with something,like this, Nintendo really has changed



Nothing to see here, move along

We are one step closer to banjo in smash.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

It seems weird. And wrong. And bad.

 

 

I suppose it's a good thing for those who own both the Switch, are part of the Xbox/MS gaming ecosystem, and are into achievements. I'm guessing this will be pointless for a majority of Switch owners though.

Does anything else think this could be the start of MS getting out of the hardware bussiness? Going 3rd party?

Didn't you sell your Xbox One though? So achievements didn't even get you to keep that console!

Xbox One only has Halo that I'd want to play that I can't play elsewhere though. Although actually, all the Halo games that I've liked so far are playable on my 360 too, so don't even need a One for that.

MS does say they plan to put all their own 1st party games on gamepass.
You know they plan on getting gamepass on switch.
They opened up a new division at MS to deal with streaming services (ei. streaming xbox games to other devices)
Now theres xbox live + achivements comeing soon too.

It might happend.



Would be super dope to see a full partnership between MS and Nintendo to bring Xbox achievements to all Switch games.
