Welcome To Your New Home On The Internet: Xbox Achievements

Welcome To Your New Home On The Internet: Xbox Achievements

We teased and teased, heck, we've even openly talked about it, but now the launch traffic rush has slightly subsided, it's time to deliver the goods, just in time for the festive period too. Welcome, ladies and gents, to the new look and rebranded Xbox Achievements - now a .com! - your one-stop shop of everything Xbox related, whether it's the 360, the One, SmartGlass, etc., we've got you covered, as per usual.

The new design and new URL is just the first step in what is a year-long plan to strengthen our position as the biggest and best Xbox site on the internet. Stage one, which is this here stage, is a multi-part stage:

1. Make the site cleaner, visually, with a completely fresh new look;
2. Strengthen the backend with double the servers - quicker ones too - to make the site even more reliable and responsive (Microsoft has done it with their console, it's only polite if we do it with our site), and;
3. Start to roll out more and more options to improve your user experience, like the drop down menus at the top - it now takes you less clicks to get to the achievement pages now, for instance.

Of course, being a new site launch, there may be a few bugs that you come across, if you find them, please let us know in the comments below and we'll fix them right away. Thanks as always for your continued support and we look forward to being with you for another generation.

Happy holidays, folks. Here's to 2014 being our biggest and best year yet!

@#1 - With a bit of luck, the first new feature (one of the big ones we've been working on for a while) is coming very early on in 2014 =) Like I said in the post, this is just stage one.

It's very white.

Anyway loving the drop down menus, that's pretty cool. Although (no offense intended to anyone) I had a nice laugh at that silly blue "no avatar" thing still being up there. Hopefully one of the coming changes is to get rid of it already. :p

Also I like the part about double the servers and faster ones at that. Nice job guys, an "8th gen" site for our 8th gen consoles.

(Actually though this isn't my new home, this is my sister's new home. Any estimate on when this roles out on PS3T?)

@#3 - Looking into the white. Also, I like the blue avatar thing =P But obviously, we're open and listening to all the criticism and feedback =)

As for PS3T, as soon as the kinks have been worked out on the Xbox site, it'll go live on the PlayStation side =)

Haha okay actually posted that and now I have a bug for you. It's very brief but after pushing submit I get a screen with error codes. It's very fast so I'll have to try and print screen it.

Here it is. Sorry in advance if this URL breaks the page layout.

@4: I wouldn't mind the blue avatar thing so much if it ever did something. It's just been sitting there as is for years with no functionality. I got used to it before but now with the new Xbox One/Windows 8 style aesthetics it sticks out like a sore thumb. What was that ever meant to be anyway?

Also thanks for the info about PS3T, and thanks to all of you guys on this site for beta testing for us. :p

I'm glad to see the change-over! You'll probably get a LOT of feedback about the white background. If there's a way to let the users customize their own colors, you'll make a lot of people very happy!!

It's one of the things I loved about the original Xbox 360 dashboard - the ability to change the backgrounds, blades, etc.... and choose my own templates to make the screen dark, for example... since I usually play video games at night and keep the room dark, and don't like it when I have menus and other screens on my Xbox (or PC) that forces me to have bright pages!

Good job. One thing i have always thought needs improving is the search bar. It needs to be more lenient with miss spelled games, and it also needs to auto-complete.

RE: the white background, not sure we can make it customisable, but we're willing to listen to alternatives. Maybe an off-white, or something. Will discuss with Aleks later.

@#10 - Absolutely. That's one of our major goals for next year, fear not =)

Been looking at the CSS and by not having #cont as full white, it does take the edge off. At the same time it would mean the site isn't as "clean" as it now is though.

I also get a brief error message when I make a comment.

I actually think the white looks good, but I usually check the site from my portable telephonic device and the white will reduce the time between re-electrifications unfortunately.

Hopefully changing to a .com won't result in an increase in the number of adverts ;-)

I like the new site though, good work!

@18/21: That's on Microsoft's end, not ours. You currently can not view achievement lists on your profile, which is where we get the images from. They have claimed (via twitter support) that they will be fixing this, but no timetable has been given.

@20: Similar to above, we're waiting to see how handles those types of achievements. If they don't show on, we may not list them unless there is overwhelming demand. IMO, if you can't flaunt them, there's not much point in tracking them here. :p

I'm liking the new set up. Looks good. People are right about the background though. It is a bit harsh. How about the pale blue that MS seem to have become fond of for the background? Or maybe a shade of yellow?

Whilst your upgrading can you change your video player so I can watch trailers on my windows phone. That's how I view the website most often and it's a pain to get told it won't play on my mobile.

Please please please get rid of the white, it's incredibly harsh on the eyes. A light green, light grey, or even something off-white would be better. When you look at your list of achievements it looks like it hasn't finished loading b/c there's no distinction b/w 50% of the games and the background. Please change. Otherwise things look ok.

Love the new site well done to the whole team.

i do have 2 things which should be mentioned.

1. I still cant play videos (or at least 90%) on my windows phone when browsing on the go.

2. What do we call you now because before when friends asked what i was looking at i used to say in just checking out x360a but i cant say that now so what is the new nickname.

Like I said previously, we'll look into the white after we've fixed a few of the bugs we're encountering.

@#43 - That, my friend, is on the to do list for early 2014 =)

@#45 - Yeah, there are a few spacing issues that have arisen, it's on the bug list. Thanks.

@#47 - There's another unexpected bug with the achievement lists that mean the watermarks and the titles don't match up. We're working on that now.

@#49 - I will personally look into the video player issues early next year. It's a compatibility issue with Windows Phones, which is hardly ideal, so will look into a fix or even a new player next year. It's no 5-minute job, so I thank you for your patience in advance.

As for a new nickname, nothing official yet, we're thinking XBA.

I really like the site, and great that it is a .com site.
The only thing i would like to see different is the white background, but i see im not alone in that.
maybe the light green-ish colour or lightgrey watermark background.
Anyway, i really like the direction the site is going.
Keep up the good work.

I know it's already being said a lot, but I hope you can change the white background. To me it's just not pleasing at all to the eye, if that makes sense lol. An option to customize the look of the XBA site, or maybe making the background a light grey or light green would be great. Also, the top header being just plain solid green with "Xbox Achievements" on the left.. no doubt it has a clean, sharp, non-cluttered look. But, a little light graphic effects on it would be cool. This is a huge site, with so many amazing graphic artists that do incredible jobs making Sig's for people, I'm sure you could get some great submissions for ideas. Nothing crazy or cluttering it up, but I think maybe some light green/white smoke in the background or something like that would be cool. I don't know.. it just looks very basic to me right now, like it needs some "oomph!" lol :)
If nothing can really be done with the blue non-avatar that you can't currently do anything with, I would say just remove it. Every time I see it, I feel like I need to upload a picture to it. Then I remember, you can't... lol. We all know this is a lot of work and you guys are working hard on all the changes. Thanks for all you do! :D

It's a small complaint, but could you make a better search engine? I hate that I can't find certain games because I lack a colon, hyphen, etc. sometimes, and even other times when I do use it, it tells me it can't find the game. It's pretty irritating.

I would like a platform list differentiating the guides for games of the same title. It would be much easier for me to pick the correct forum thread for Spartan Assault on Windows Phone instead of guessing which link corresponds to which that platform.

@65 - they even show your progress for Xbox One achievements that support the feature.

I never understood why it works this way but do the links to the forums always have to open in a new window? That's probably the main thing that bugs me regularly here along with the voting causing a page reload but someone else already mentioned that! :)

When you search a game, there is no distinction for which version or platform (or other characteristic) the game is for.

Search Bioshock. You see 2 Bioshock, and 3 Bioshock 2. Whats the difference between them?

Worry more about missing content than paint jobs.

You still don't have any basic images for any of the One Achievements, not tracking challenges and have a stupid rigmarole for just getting your damned gamertag to show.

There's international games here that are missing complete achievement lists. For weeks. - I've had to leave you for them. Sorry.

@72 - Really? Had to stab their eyes out before you left? TA doesn't have the user-base from what I've seen. Either that or not as many people contribute. Anyway, happy trails dude...

I agree with the Forums link opening a new tab. I wish it would just open in the same page.

Really like the new site!

The only real complaints I have are the super intense white that has already been touched on a lot and how weirdly spaced out my checklist is, along with a lack of borders on the checklist. But other than that everything else looks great!

It runs really slow on mobile to the point it stops and freezes my phone. Lucky I have a laptop to use. But its a great improvement.

In the Achievements guides, the "Show/hide roadmap" banner still shows up in the light green. Just a small thing but thought you'd like to know!

New site looks great, one problem with the new design though is that when you're on a game's main page (not the forums) you used to be able to look at the "Achievement Guide" link and see straight away if it was clickable and if there is a guide there yet for the game by the link's colour.

Now with the new design the clickable and un-clickable links in that bar look identical until you hover a mouse over them and try clicking. As I often browse this site with a tablet (because that's what I have near my Xbox) I can't tell without trying to click the link and seeing if anything happens. A colour or font difference for clickable vs non-clickable text in that bar would be great.

Love the new site except the size on pages now is cutting off a lot of words in reviews. Overall though, a nice update for next gen.

The new site upgrade is looking nice! I have a question for you: Are you ever gonna bring back the "in the comments" articles that you used to do? I always enjoyed reading things that I might have missed. Just wondering if you will ever do those again...

@88 Yours doesn't with 104 posts and @85 does with 0 posts :P

Also feedback:
I would love to see some soft borders around the sections.
And too bad the news feed scroll thing has gotten bigger vertically, now I have to scroll down a bit in order to see the news.
(Also this box when typing too much text loses the left edge ;-) )

Haven't really got any issues with the site since the facelift. It does seem to load slower for me, but I do have a rubbish internet connection! (Roll on the 15th!)

As someone else mentioned I would like to see or be able to search based on platform. It can be annoying searching for a game when you have to guess which one is the version you have, and not the PC or JP version :( Auto-complete and to allow for mis-spelling would also be great.

Also, while typing this comment, when i try and naviagte using the arrow keys if i make a mistake, the whole thing grinds to a halt and catches up after 1-2 minutes which is weird. If i click somewhere and use the delete key it reacts straight away. The caret also takes forever to toggle between visible and no-visible too! :S

I don't know if it is related to the site overhaul, but I can't get the Saints Row IV checklist to remain fully checked. It always leaves the same 3 unchecked for 25G - Zero Saints Thirty and a couple from the last DLC. I know you used to just have to disable and re-enable the checklist, but that doesn't seem to be a solution anymore. Even when I disable it, it still shows up in my checklists with 67/70. I tried un-checking everything before disabling and it made no difference, just remembered it as 0/70, and I could only restore the 67.

@91: Try deleting your progress:

1. Go to My Checklists (
2. Scroll to SR IV
3. CLick the red cross and confirm
4. Re-enable checklists for SR and mark all achievements

Now it should work (had that with 2 games too, might help you)

Colors are nice, but bit too light, what I want to be fixed is that you can't see if a link is available or not (like achievements tab and achievements guide tab for games)

Don't have problems with the comment box, but comments are cut off on my iPhone

I don't have a gamercard in my profile, but it appears here at the comments, and seems like to be not updated since a year.

Actually one other thing I'd like to see (in addition to forum links not opening in a new window/tab) is to make the site a little more touch friendly. For example on my Surface/iPad when trying to click on the icon to go to the last post in a thread I often end up hitting the poster link instead! :(

My suggestion is to remove all duplicates of games in the search page, e.g. Two Gears of War games showing achievements at either 1000 or 1250G

Another thing you all really should fix is the fact that if I try to post two comments within one minute (I usually don't even think about it), it totally deletes my comment, no matter how long it is. It's very irritating. Why not just have a notification pop up and alert me that I can't post for another X amount of seconds?

I've been a member since 2010, I'm no way near as active in the community since my early days but I continue to use this site daily to keep me up to date on the news and to use the many guides created by this community. And I shall continue to use this site as it is by far the best site I've used when it comes to news on Xbox, everything is easy to find and is set out in a way that makes it easily accessible. I thank the wonderful team at this site for continuing to improve an already great place.
Keep up the good work.

I just started 6 weeks ago and I've gotten 2 check for a total of $2,200...this is the best decision I made in a long time! "Thank you for giving me this extraordinary opportunity to make extra money from home. This extra cash has changed my life in so many ways, thank you!"

I love the new site layout, but for the first 2 weeks it wouldn't allow me to access the website at all, and I was able to access the sister site so I made a account on there to ask the admins as to why I wasn't able to access the new website, and they told me that apparently since the upgrade of the new site, you guys got new servers for the site, and some people including me, have been having issues with the site not being able to read their IP's. So everytime I tried to visit this site it told me "oops this page is currently not working or possibly down" but it wasn't down at all, it was just my IP address not being read by the new servers.

Anyways.... I checked it everyday to see if it worked at all, and little to my surprise today it decides it will read my IP and now I'm able to access this website again!!

I never knew how much I loved this site until I wasn't able to access it either.. I come here for ALL my gaming news/needs and like I said I love this site.

Thank you if you guys were able to fix the issue I said above, because the Admins on the PSTrophie website assured me that you guys would be trying to fix it and just be patient.

^^^ I just noticed that most of my comment got cut off.

I'm sure that's fixable though right
