Xbox One Integration: Stage 1

Since I seemed to be the only person excited about the new flag system for release dates, perhaps this will be a more popular announcement.

So we have a lot of work to do to fully integrate the Xbox One as a part of our community. While the website's name will eventually change (we know what it is but we aren't sharing just yet!), the infrastructure will essentially remain the same, so we're beginning to bring the Xbox One into the fold sooner rather than later.

The first step was to create a new "designation" for games in our admin section. Each game we add to the site is put into a category whether it is a retail/arcade/Japanese/WP/W8. We now have an Xbox One category. What this means is that I have switched over all Xbox One exclusive games, and created a second listing of any game that will be released on both generations.

Why would I create two listings for the same game? Well, if you missed it, there was a confirmation a few weeks ago that all games released on both generations will feature two achievement lists. There will be one standard list for the 360 version, and one special cloud enhanced list for the One version.

To accommodate the eventual existence of two lists, and to give everyone the option of choosing which games to add to their Wish Lists on their profiles, you'll now (for instance) see two "Thief" listings. This will work much as stackable games currently do. You'll want to pay attention to the box art and URL to make sure you have the version you want. Any Xbox One stack will have "xbox-one" at the end of its URL. Xbox One exclusive games will not need this addition to their URL obviously.

Finally, we have added an Xbox One section to the Upcoming Games link. Since there will no longer be a distinction on Microsoft's end between "retail" and "arcade" Xbox One games, all games released on the console will be under the same heading. Thief is the only game with a confirmed Xbox One release date so far, but once the console's release date is actually announced this list will swell with all the confirmed launch titles.

I hope you like this first step, and please feel free to drop any feedback you may have!

Edit: There may be some Xbox 360 versions of games that are sporting the Xbox One cover art from before I did this work tonight. Please report (and if possible provide the 360 cover art) and I will correct them. I also need to create forums for each of the stacking versions so they can be discussed separately since the online communities and achievement lists will be different. I'll work on that soon.

Times are changing and it's good to see and hear X360A making relevant changes. Vaguely remember the site from 2008/2009, so looking forward to seeing the next big update.

Thanks for the update. I did miss the notice about double achievement lists and seeing it in you post made my day.

Brilliant stuff. Glad we're getting to know this now rather than later. Different forums for the same game definitely makes sense due to the achievements lists and so. Can't wait for the coming weeks.

I see big things happening very soon, and I'm very eager to see how it all get handled.

Oh, and yay for Thief!

It's great to see you guys moving forward at a strong speed. I don't want to wait until 2015 for everything to be functioning again and it doesn't look like that'll be an issue.

Awesome news! Seems like you guys are on top of it. I'm curious to see how the Challenges play out here...how they will appear on our screen, how we will be able to track them via our Xbox, how they will be tracked here...ect. Exciting Times ahead :P.

It really does not bother me either and I don't know why people are not liking it. I understand when you do sell a game or even rent it that they may be some more achievements coming. That is the samething with DLC when they add more achievements to a game.

It seems x360a is on top of things!

Now I'll just have to wait the XB1 becomes someday available around here.

Cool

No matter what I'm not buying the Xbox 1 untill there is a price drop and the system gets a slim version or something equal to a slim version.

This will take about say two or three years but thats fine by me, I have too many games both old and modern games.
Also for modern games I rather stick to PC, WiiU, 360 and PS3.

Also the xbox 1 libary is pretty terrible... I only have my sights on the Killer instinct reboot but I'm gonna wait for that game to get a retail release, and mirrors edge 2 but that game will get ported to PC which is far more superior.

If X1 gets a huge price drop, new model and 20 games I love then I will buy it.

I'm not a fan of the new look on Deadrising 3 but I'm not gonna bash on that game because I'm not a jerk also its a functional game.
