Microsoft Patents Achievements for Watching Television
Written By
View author's profile

Look, we weren't going to report on this originally, because trust us we're as bored of reading half-baked, assumption-filled news posts about the Xbox One as you are. But the trouble is, we kinda have to report on this because it applies to achievements.

Last November Microsoft applied for a patent on an achievements system designed to reward viewers for watching television. That's right. Achievements for watching telly.

"Television viewing tends to be a passive experience for a viewer, without many opportunities for the viewer to engage or have interactive experiences with the presented content," says the application.

"To increase interactive viewing and encourage a user to watch one or more particular items of video content, awards and achievements may be tied to those items of video content."

"Additionally, by tying the awards and achievements to particular items of video or advertising content, viewers may be encouraged to increase their viewership of the content, thus increasing advertising opportunities."

While the specifics of how the system would work are not outlined in the description, the suggestion is that viewers would be offered achievements for watching an entire series, or a special televised event.

In addition to this, Microsoft also envisaged a way of incorporating Kinect into this madness, rewarding viewers for certain actions like holding up a specific product in front of the sensor during adverts.

It's worth pointing out that a patent filing doesn't necessarily mean Microsoft will pursue the system. But bearing in mind the company's focus for their next gen console (TV, TV, TV, TV, Sports, TV), then we'll let you come to your own conclusions.

Lame! If this is true is pretty sad achievements shouldn't be given for watching T.V. Pretty disgusting people will subscribe to NFL network and fantasy football just to earn imaginary score. What happend to the games?? Achievements should be earned not given!!!

They're now taking the piss. Seriously I love achievements but this is going too far. I like taking stats from achievements, seeing how many people have achieved that particular achievement and how many people on friends list/world have managed to 100% the game (as teased in the reveal) but achievements for watching TV is stupid and is going too far.

That Kinect thing is an utter joke. Microsoft no doubt getting commision from the advertisers based upon how many people interact during the ad, hence ensuring that they watched it..

Remember the original Xbox? Switch it on, insert your game and play, no hassle, no ads, no apps, no achievements, no kinect, no online tv, no movies, no avatars, no cod bullshit, no season pass, no ms points, no laggy dashboard.
It had none of that, it was 100% dedicated to pure gaming fun. I miss those days :(

Its honestly like someone at Microsoft took the list of everything people wanted in a next gen console, and did completely the opposite in every aspect.

I love my 360, and I have a huge collection of games for it, but they have completely UNSOLD me on purchasing an XBox One.

Sorry for my new few choice words but....well this is the most stupidest fucking thing I never fucking heard in my fucking life. Truth is I don't fucking watch tv since everything is online now so when I wanna watch something I fucking watch it on the internet which is on my computer and when I do watch tv I only watch one or two shows on it and when I do I go and watch it in the living room. MICROSOFT STOP BE FUCKING RETARDED FOR ONCE AND MAKE A GAMING SYSTEM NOT AN ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM!!!! That is all sorry.

The following is the next true purpose of the kinect camera :

Achievement unlocked 100G : watched TV while drinking Coka Cola
Achievement unlocked 50G : watched TV while eating Lays
Achievement unlocked 75G : watched TV while getting drunk with Coors
Achievement unlocked 250G : got laid in front of kinect with Durex condoms while not really
watching TV
Achievement unlocked...............

Congrats Micro$oft, real gamers don't want achievements tied to stupid things like watching TV and other people like casual gamers already don't care about them at all!
It seems Micro$oft has given up on the gaming aspect of the xbox one...

Achievements for TV? To stupid to be true. Now what about rewards? Imagine getting free avatar gear or in game gear for watching Breaking Bad or Avengers 2. That I would get into.

What about a separate vide/ Tv/music/entertainment achievement accumilation? A way to show friends what you are into. Maybe even a way to connect to other folks on the XBL service.

However if they combine Tv achievements with my current, well earned, achievements... I'm out. Would be a colossal mistake.

So do I have to still pay for my gold membership? I am still trying to figure out why I pay now what with Xbox running ads on every dashboard screen as it is eating my data cap away!

So MS Xbox and corporations have finally figured out how to regain ad dollars lost from the decline of T.V. WOW!!! FINE, THEN MAKE XBOXLIVE FREE!!!

I will not pay to watch ads. In fact I go out of my way to NOT watch them as it is.


I own every game system made and I will keep buying every game system made
GAME SYSTEM!!! I HAVE A PS4 ON PREORDER, NOT THE XBOX ONE!That is until you prove its a game system, I won't buy one. I have a DVR and I don't EVER use it, Cuz I hate stupid t.v.!

Oh and what is this, we didn't go highend on graphics bullshit? It didn't seem important? WTF MS... WHEN DOES THE XBOX TWO COME OUT? MAYBE THAT WILL BE A GOOD GAME SYSTEM WITH UPDATED GRAPHICS? INSTEAD OF A NEXT GEN HD-DVR.

Achievement guide for...

"incorporating Kinect into this madness, rewarding viewers for certain actions like holding up a specific product in front of the sensor during adverts."

Simply find internet image of product and hold laptop up during advert. If that fails, print image out and try again. ding

I've always thought they should have achievements for Netflix...finishing a season or the entire season type thing...I'd probably have a higher gs than I do with just games.

This next generation will definitely get me off achievement hunting as far as needing completion, especially if they are tying them to ads and things of that nature.

Did anyone else out there anyone beta test XBL? Do you remember the excitement? The hope and promise for the future? Now some years later XBL is the best online gaming service. When I heard the XBL stats I was blown away. 1500 servers to 50000 and by the end of the year 300000!!!(more computer power than the whole world had in 1999). I was left scratching my head. I was wondering why MS needed such a massive network. What was the MULTIPLAYER universe going to look like?

So I waited and waited... NFL and fantasy football... I waited... Set top tv... I waited... Movies... I waited... WTF? Not a word???

Then it hit me. MS is trying to be the world provider for T.V. and movies. Fuck gaming... Own all t.v. And movie licenses and you own it all! All media... Movies, tv, music, and the right to make and license all games! Think about it... It is the Sony and Nintendo death blow! Or at least that's what they think it will be.

Own all of the licenses and kill the compition. It could kill Netflix and Hulu as well by controlling and holding all major movies and tv from them while opening a similar service thru Zune or charging so much that they can't compete.

Why does this matter? Cuz if they kill all of the compition, what will we play... Angry birds? Fruit ninja? Only ea sports games? Only cod?
No thank you!

I might be crazy but this could really suck, as if it doesn't already!

So a new feature and people complain about it. If the achievement system is expanded to watching TV will achievements for TV really bother you guys. And why? In answering this question I want you to explain your position and not just assert it.

First question for you, is tv about content or advertising? How much product placement is in movies and sport? Do you want your game to pause while you receive an advertisement from Doritos? How about this... Do you want to have to answer a survey on which products you buy in order to boot your box?
Have you ever watched the Simpson's? Remember the episode where the school system was sponsored by Pepsi? "if you have two Pepsi's and Johnny gives you two more, how many Pepsi's do you have?" "Pepsi" "half credit"... Funny, but I dont want this!
It takes NO skill to stare at something. Beat black ops on veteran, that's an achievement and hard as all hell! Now watch tv... See a difference?

Someone posted that only the hardcore care about cheevos, casual gamers dont! This is true. But someone else stated that your Gs is made up and doesn't mean anything, this is also true. However it is, it doesn't matter, I like cheevos cuz you get the most out a game, play it different, slow down and enjoy it and sometimes pissed you off. I like the feeling I get when I get 100% and my gamerscore is like a badge of dedication to the game and gaming in general. It won't be the same if it is for eating Doritos, drinking a Pepsi while watching the walking dead. I don't want a Pepsi theme... Does anyone? I dont want my avatar reward to be chips. MOST of all I DO NOT want to only play franchised games, as in dortios stunt track, brought to you by Doritos, Doritos the real crunch. And so on and so on...

Ok, this madness has to stop. Microsoft think they are being real innovative and clever coming up with all these little ideas to reel more people into buying their new system. I think its starting to look a little desperate. They don't need a 199,332 gadgets and wingdings to make this new system desirable.

I fact do not give Microsoft a shot but I do want throw many cakes on their faces for being quite many wrong with Xbox One.

I agreed TV achievements is stupid idea. Achievements should be Retail games, Downloadable games and Indie games. That is because you play through and earn whatsoever cheevos want you do.

But achievements for TV to earn just watching or change setting in TV or switch entire numbers of channels or whatever but it is so silly.

Very disappointed with Microsoft this time around. I still get Xbox One just for play games and achievements just like Xbox 360 anyway and I will not support Mircosoft for TV, Advs, Kinect and other things.

Just play games, play with friends, earn achievements for games and talk with friends over text messages. That is what I usual on Xbox 360 so Xbox One will be same.

I am so exciting for what Microsoft will announces 15 exclusive titles in E3 2013. I knew new IP called Quantum Break (same developers who developed of Alan Wake and original Max Payne series), Forza 5 and other new IP's Ryse (it is Kinect for Xbox One). So 3 is already so we expect to see around 12 surprises this E3 2013 maybe I am incorrect but I am sure since 3 is already confirmed.

I will get games that just require Xbox One controller only or if Kinect is in Xbox One game but require regular controller not only Kinect then I will pick regular controller over Kinect. But if Kinect game only then I not get it. I never want support Microsoft for Kinect because it is bored and gimmicky. :)

I very exciting for Mario Kart, Mario 3D platformer, Bayonetta 2, Super Smash Bros., new Zelda HD game, Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Pikmin 3, New Super Luigi Bros., The Wonderful 101, Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut and load more for Wii U. Infamous 3, Killzone 4, some new IP games and more for PS4. For Xbox One, I look forward some exclusive games for it.

Fact Wii U and PS4 is winning for next generation consoles because they more depth exclusive titles on them. At moment of course Wii U got low sale but this month is much and much change and it is going up and up sales better. Seem later this year Wii U will change to become biggest sales because of lots of Wii U games on way later this year so begin with Pikmin 3, The Wonderful 101 and New Super Luigi Bros. in Summer. I look forward more information for PS4 this E3 2013. I hope one day we see and play new Ratchet & Clank game, Uncharted 4, LittleBigPlanet 3 and more in future for PS4 in cycle of years.

I knew Halo 5 will be closer future and possible next year I bet. I hope Rare confirm this E3 2013 for either new IP game that not Kinect, new Banjo-Kazooie, Perfect Dark or Killer Instinct or even new Conker game. Either need returns on Xbox One. I knew Microsoft already mention that Rare working new title but i hope either games I mention early sentence.

I very exciting for each respect consoles. I already got Wii U, Xbox 360 and PS3 so PS4 and Xbox One will be joins. I will not trade in PS3 and Xbox 360 why? because PS4 and Xbox One will not require you and us to play PS3 or Xbox 360 on their respect next generation consoles. So when PS3 and Xbox 360 become R.I.P. one day future.

Xbox 36 won current generation but Wii won for top sales console so PS3 just behind Xbox 360 while Wii is bottom of them. But it is seem Wii U and PS4 winning for next generation at moment for many reasons better over Xbox One.

I am fans of all consoles and I love many of their games on each of them. I really disappointed with Microsoft for Xbox One. But we hope Microsoft woke up almost near future to better for Xbox One just like Wii U at moment for sales up and up now so it is bit like Xbox One but moment lots of disappointed reasons for Xbox One but we know Mircosoft will polish up one day after launch. But we have wait and see for load more information for Xbox One this E3 2013 :)

Cannot wait for E3 2013. So many of us hype over this to see each games going on each consoles. :)

I not worry about disappointed reasons for Xbox One cos I knew some of them will polish up one day.

Bring it on E3 2013 and many games this year!! :)

On the bright side, hopefully this will allow people living outside of their home countries the chance to legally watch TV from their home country without dealing with internet/region-locking BS.

Over on PS3T I don't recall any complaining about Torne giving trophies for watching TV; the only problem was with the fact that it was Japan-only.

But interactive advertising? Yeah, GTFO.

Microsoft just continues to spit in the face of loyal Xbox gamers. I was actually looking forward to a new console, I hoped Microsoft would take what they had with the 360 and make it even better. But this is a BIG step back from everything they've built up to. Is it really that hard for them to understand that gamers do not want to watch TV on a gaming console, that is what TVs are for. And now they've gone ahead and finished it off by killing the only good thing they had left, achievements. I don't even know if they're sabotaging everything Xbox stands for on purpose or not. It's extremely disappointing. I'm not very hopeful for the future of gaming.

I was 100% on board with Xbox One until this news piece. The possibility of not being able to get 100% GS because I refuse to watch TV I don't like would be dumb. If however it was just for trying features that werre available then meh - maybe.

@92 Of course, because TV signal will not be provided by X1, you need a cable or IPTV subscription. X1 will only enable you to watch it on the same channel, without switching inputs via your remote.

Microsoft, where is the surveyed test group that said XBox One was a good idea?

This is a multi-tasked set-top box which does everything and excels at nothing.

I have been the 360's staunchest supporter. But, with every piece of news revealed about the XB1, I become more and more disappointed.

I'll get your next console after the XB1, the XBox Phoenix, after you've learned your lesson the hard way. Looking forward to your next dedicated gaming platform in 5 years.

The more I read about this bullshit, the less inclined I am to buy it. I am actually beginning to lose interest in this MS next gen device. Achievements & Used Game policy should be left as is just as it is on the 360. I don't buy used but it seems that all these extra measures are in place to milk and fuck over the gamer more than anything else. It makes me sad as an older guy to see gaming come to this.

E3 is whats important if there are no good exclusives sony or no system it is. Both systems are pretty similar spec wise so as long as they don't screw up the games i think they will be fine and here is hoping they drop this idea.

I can see the majority of cheeves will be and related and M$ will gain extra revenue from companies who sign up to help promote their products.this is the start of the fight against DVRs and the consumer's ability to skip and breaks by pre-recording shows. Whether this is going to be reality or not after the XBone reveal and the mess that M$ has made of it I'm glad I made the decision to switch to PC gaming.

In all actuality, this doesn't effect any of us gamers in any way... yet still its kinda rediculous, to go along with all the other bs they are pulling with this shit console...

They will give acheivments to watching tv, therefore getting more advertising dollars... way to go M$ Your greedy and we know it.... If this was like acheivements for full seasons on Netflix and Hulu, im game.. but this is all about adverts and advert revenue, nothing more... PATHETIC I'll buy good 360 games for the next few years... but not a dime of mine is going to X-Bone PS4 will get all my paychecks...

Remove used game fee, and add backward compatibility and i will buy one.. end of discussion...

As a self confessed Achievement-whore (though probably not as zealous as I used to be), Achievements are a massive part of games for me. Without them I would probably only play 95% of the games that I have played more than once. They add not only re-playability however, but an extra set of challenges away from the campaign or multiplayer. The way this new Achievement system is shaping up really could contribute to making or breaking the Xbox One as I'm sure there are many who feel the same about them as me. The current Achievement system is probably what has kept me in gaming over the last few years.

@138 The Xbox One is the weaker system, not opinion FACT, look at the specs they speak for them self, the PS4 also doesn't have a load of pointless features taking more resources than needed.

If you dont want the basically FREE achieves for watching TV then who cares. Its a simple addition they did to make money and gave achievement whores, who most of us are on this site, something to earn for doing almost nothing.

Why bash MS for this? Makes zero sense except for people to bitch and complain about NOTHING! Reading over all these comments and countless others since Tuesdays X1 unveil has made me realize how pathetic the internet is. Dont buy an X1, switch to PS4 stay on your 360 or PS3, nobody cares. Would everybody just take a pill til E3 already when they can do a proper show of what we all want to see...GAMES!

While I do believe this is a horrible idea, I don't think it's a simple as people make it out to be. For example, let's say the achievement is "watch episode 5." Think you can just but the episode on and walk away? Kinect will be watching you to make sure you're watching.

Achievement list:
PoTATO: sit on the couch watching TV for 6 hours.
Channel hopper: flick through every channel in one sitting.
news24: watch the news for a total of 24 hours.
I get it: Watch a program you have no idea about.
Seasoned Pro: watch a complete season of any program.
Really?: Mute the news
I do more than that: Switch from TV to Game.

It's funny to see people here get worked up over this patent, as if it were already set in stone. It's something they're looking into, or were. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan of it just like everyone else here, but I'm not going to get pissed over something that has yet to be confirmed. If they ARE looking into it, they'll likely change their mind on it like they did with the whole used game fee issue. All in all, I'm curious to see Microsoft's lineup at E3.

This could be the final nail that swings me straight into Sony's arms and the PS4.

Depsite having both a 360 and PS3, I've always favoured my 360 in terms of the achievement system over the trophy system. My PS3 has been largely untouched, with me choosing to purchase most multiplat games on my 360.

Achievements are obviously a meaningless score to anyone else, im not argueing that. But its MY score, something I've earnt through the tasks I've completed in games. Some challenging, some fun. It represents a history of the journey I've taken in some of the best games this gen, almost a photobook to look back on.

If that score is able to be increased with meaningless trivial things, like watching a television show, it renders it completely worthless and uninteresting to me. It'll no longer be my gaming hobby on the side, just a completely mindless number representing nothing (again, I know it has no real value now, but you get what I mean).

They have already did the watch certain amount of clips for a certain amount of points with Kinect Sesame Street TV. There are like 16 or so of the achievements in season one that are dedicated to it. That basically is like watching the show. I mean there's no interaction other than sitting there and watching episodes of the show. So this is only slightly new. The simple thing is to not take a part in it. just like with the game I mentioned. Achievements have always had really simple ones(like pressing start).

My only complaint about this is the people on this website commenting how dumb it is. Who is making anyone do this? Do you all play EVERY single 360 game and arcade game? Nope, no one does. So this is just another bunch of achievements that you don't get that someone else will. And for the people saying it should be a gaming console ONLY. So you spend your money on Live and not use the Youtube, Explorer, Netflix, etc. apps. You are wasting your money. Get over it.

Achievements for watching TV? No! Just no! It's called a GAMERscore for a reason. As ridiculously easy some games are (i.e. Avatar: the Burning Earth and NCIS), at least you earn those achievements BY ACTUALLY DOING SOMETHING. I mean, yes, there are some out there for doing absolutely nothing like in LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 and Saw, but all the others require effort, and that's the way it should be. Keep the achievement system for video games only! That's all I have to say.

If anyone here still can't grasp all the tell tale signs, they are clearly stupid. The plain basic fact MS might even have a patent for bullshit like this says mountains about the in spades. Just yesterday I bought a PS3, I can't even stomach logging into Live anymore because of what MS stands for now. They have made it abundantly clear that they care more about their fucking "partners", giving us a halo tv series, and fantasy football then they care about gaming.

I don't give a damn what the rest of you do but I already JUMPED OUT yesterday. Such a damn shame all the money I wasted with MS since 2005, well no fucking more.

Probably to get consumer information that they then SELL so more advertisers can target you specificaly, like facebook.

It makes you wonder if any of these companies read the feedback on their ideas or products, cuz tobe honest i hvnt really seen anyone say a good word about the Xbox One so far!
Trouble is, there are so many people with tiny brains which find all this sort of shit amazing, it will never disappear now and it will more than likely get worse!
Also does anyone else feel really uncomfortable with the idea of a state-of-the-art camera/microphone constantly on in your living room??? I really hope they sort it so you dont have to have kinect, lol im paranoid and kinect really freaks me out!

Just because they patent something does not mean they will use it, it just so they can sue if someone else does. If your worry about a patent then you should be worry about Sony, they patented a system that blocks used games on gaming systems.

@201. Your right, its not really amazing, its actually to be expected because when something that is unexpected or unknown to the consumer, negative feedback is always to be expected.

Seriously though, as ridiculous as this sounds, it's not yet been confirmed, and even if it is, since when have us "achievement whores" ever complained about almost free achievements? I don't remember everyone declaring war on Bethesda when they released a game where the full 1550G was obtainable in 5 mins by simply typing.

Just seeing the words "TV" and "NFL" in relation to the new xbox is anger inducing. Especially when its the key feature that MS is putting front and center. F you MS, F you.

I feel like gaming is a side-feature of the Xbox One, not its purpose.... which is not what I want in my console. I just wanted better graphics/sound capabilities, a quicker XBL with less crap, and a larger hd.... I hate all these anti-gaming features.

Completely pointless. It does not translate because you have no imput that deserves an achievement. I often just leave my tv on 24/7, does that mean I will get every achievement imaginable for one channel?

The whole thing is stupid, and I am super OCD about achievements so I hope there is some opt out function because I don't want this shite showing up in my gaming history.

Besides, I don't even think the TV feature will even work for Europe.

I really need to consider not coming to this website anymore. It's overrun with bitching and moaning. You do realize that just because something is an option that you don't have to use it? It's still going to have all of the games you want available to play. Who cares about the abilities of it if all you want to do is play the games? Stop bitching about absolutely everything that doesn't fit you and your ignorant wants. It's not about you. ...and maybe, just maybe, it's going to be linked to things like gaming tournaments they'll broadcast, or the Halo series that S.S. is going to create.
