Are xbox Achievements through physical copy possible?

Since I have the majority of my scores on xbox, I hope to be able to get the xbox achievements for this game. However, with the recent changes it is not possible to get the achievements through steam. Does anyone know if it possible to get xbox achievements for this game through the physical copy?

Thanks!

Yes, if you purchase the retail PC GFWL game you will earn Live achievements.

Thanks for the response Pants Party! Are you positive that I will be able to get achievements with the retail copy without any hassle? If yes, I will order it through amazon right away. Just need a final confirmation.

No one has found a way thus far. You are pretty much screwed with steam games as far as Microsoft platform achievements go. Also yes I have been told by numerous people that the retail version of the PC game still yields achievements no problem, just make sure you are aware that just as for the 360 versions of the game, the standard and GOTY editions have separate achievement lists.

I got conflicting answers on the steam forum page when I asked the same question. http://steamcommunity.com/app/35140/...scn=1396926371

Basically I was recently told there that the retail version of the Batman games does NOT have xbox achievements. I already payed for the game but still didn't get it delivered. If anyone has solid proof that about its existence or lack of existence that would be great since I will have the option of returning the packages or selling them without opening the packages.

Thanks!
