Xbox One Achievements Are Color-coded

Posted on October 23, 2013 AT 09:18am

Xbox One’s achievement system will have color-coding options to allow players to see who earned an achievement while playing a multiplayer game.

In the video below, around the 11:15 mark, you can see that a player earns an achievement in Powerstar Golf. The achievement comes up a blue color to indicate which of the two players earned it–just in case you’re not paying close enough attention and miss that it says the Gamertag as well.

On the Xbox 360 when a player earns an achievement it comes up grey and only the controller flash indicates who earned it, now things will be a lot more obvious. This isn’t exactly game changing, but it’s a nice little feature.
