I don't know if you ever looked into it, but Partnernet is a dev-only network to test arcade games and add-ons.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PartnerNet

I just learned about this myself, so I'm just relaying what I learned. If I had access to it, I don't think I'd use my normal profile for playing games from it.

Yea, but people that aren't developers or apart of the press get their hands on a dev console and then they leak it to the internet, then people with modded consoles play it.
Presumably the ones that don't have timestamps have modded consoles because MS detected the modification and banned the system. They get the hacked games achievements on their profile when they reconnect on their unmodded consoles which I guess they use for games with multiplayer.

Pretty dumb but some people think it makes them "cool".

I just realized that Windows 8 and Windows Phone (WP7 and WP8) games aren't added to the current list of stackable games. I wanna make a second 'Stackable Games' thread just for em

I made one for fun in the WP section but stopped updating it a while ago. If you make a new thread make it in the WP or W8 section.

I would make a new 'Stackable Games' thread that includes all stackable (platform and regional variation) games (Xbox 360, Arcade, XBLA, GFWL, Windows 8 and Windows Phone (WP7 and WP8)), but this thread 'Stackable Games for Gamerscore (2+ Versions with Achievements)' seems to be very popular and I wouldn't want to disrespect The Pants Party. Having all these stackable games threads may become annoying though.

Now if I do make a 'Stackable Win 8 and WP games' thread I would include an Arcade (XBLA and/or GFWL) if it stacks like CarneyVale: Showtime which is for GFWL and WP(7) and Skulls of the Shogun which is for XBLA, Win 8 and WP.

The GFWL and Windows Phone versions of CarneyVale: Showtime share basically all the same achievements except for like 2, which brings me to this point...is CarneyVale: Showtime considered a true stackable or would it be considered a platform variation? I understand that Pac-Man wouldn't be considered a stackable because I think one version is totally different than the other. One is for XBLA and the other is for WP but they don't share any achievements so it would be considered a platform variation. Right?

So if a game is the same game but is available for a different platform and shares most but not all achievements, let's say another Pac-Man game, Pac-Man Championship Edition DX (WP), would it be considered a stackable? There are 5 versions of this game, XBLA, Win 8, Win 8 (VAIO), Win 8 (Toshiba) and WP but only the XBLA, Win 8, Win 8 (VAIO) and Win 8 (Toshiba) versions share the same exact achievements. Another example would be Ms. Splosion Man which has 3 versions, XBLA, GFWL and WP but the XBLA and GFWL versions share the same exact achievements and the WP version shares basically all the same achievements except for like 2 just like CarneyVale: Showtime.

I think you get my point. I just wanna know if games like Pac-Man Championship Edition DX, Ms. Splosion Man and CarneyVale: Showtime would be considered stackables. I want to know which games I should list and what not to before I make a 'Stackable Win 8 and WP games' thread. Any input would help.

A game is stackable if it has an achievement list in more than one region and/or on more than one platform. The list doesn't have to be identical. I simply chose not to include the other devices because of the inherent difference in functionality, which I kind of explained on the first page somewhere. Playing games on the console or PC is much different than playing on your phone. It's not really the same experience, in my opinion. It may technically be the same game, but at the same time it's not.

I don't mind if someone wants to make a master list though, with all platforms included. Frankly, I still never got around to adding a lot of games to this list. They should all be listed in the Update Log, but not on the list itself. I just don't want to put in the time to add them, so feel free to copy the layout and I'll let someone else take over.

I'll gladly take over Pants if you'd like. Since I have about 90% of the Stackable/Region exclusives I'd also be willing to give information about each game like if it's in English or has English text etc kind of like on Playstation Trophies Stackable list has. Let me know and I'll get on it when I get home.

I'm already working on it, I want to add useful information to each game because I knew what a struggle it was to buy something and know little to no information about it. If I wasn't trying to own every Xbox 360 game, there would probably be a good handful I wouldn't have purchased solely because the game wasn't in English or the difficulty of finding the correct versions, plus I already have the Game Availability by Region thread anyways.

Do you plan on making a master list like Pants mentioned or you'll just be taking over this thread?

I'm open to a master list depending though if the games are similar enough. Each situation is different but I would like some kind of inclusion of similar games especially since most WP/W8 games that are on both platforms are the same. For example, I haven't played too many WP/W8 games just because I like to game on consoles. I can game on both platforms but haven't so I don't know if there's any significant differences in games like Halo Spartan Assault or Babel Rising which is spread across multiple platforms. Situations like this, I would like some assistance on.

If Japanese xboxone games are stackable, will they be added to this thread or will there be another official tab included under the achievements tab next to Home, News etc?
