Why are there so few PC games with achievements?

Not quite sure what you mean here...

If you mean, why don't many PC Games have achievements, then you're posting in the wrong place. It should probably be in the PC section

If you're asking why there aren't many achievement lists under the 'PC Games' tab, then it's because they only list the achievements if they are seperate to the 360 game.

For example, if you buy shadowrun on the PC and shadowrun on the 360, you only get one achievement list for 1000 points (both versions share the same list). BUT, if you buy a copy of 'The Club' on PC and one on 360, you have two lists for 2000 points (one list per version)

Hope this helps out

Peace

Not quite true...Shadowrun has 1250 points, so you would have one list of 1250. The Club on PC is glitched, so you would have one list of 1000 and one list of 970. heh.

Sorry, couldn't resist the humor. You are correct across the board.

The only potential interpretation of the question I can think of that you didn't address is, "Why do so few developers make PC games with achievements?" Poor marketing on Microsoft's part would be the answer.

Cheers!

Sorry but Shadowrun only has 1000 points.
