Take a look at how Achievement Unlock Notification on Xbox One compares to Xbox 360

Xbox One is almost ready to launch so we have gotten plenty of new footage for it. We might have seen the achievement unlock notification for Xbox One but how does it compare to Xbox 360?

Achievement unlocked notification already looked pretty damn good on Xbox 360 so we can’t imagine how Microsoft might have improved it any further. As you can see below, Microsoft has not only managed to make it look better, it also doesn’t seem to disrupt the flow of action on screen.

    All that I care about is weather or nit I can turn off notification sounds but leave the sound for achievements on. I always wanted that and I don’t understand why someone hasn’t thought of it.

    How the hell does the xbox 360 achievement system ruin the flow of action on screen? If anything the xbox one looks more faster as a gif pop up purposely taking your eyes off combat.

    All in all ps4 and xbox one achievement system unlocks are pretty crappy compared to the predecessors which is a damn shame. As the saying goes: if it ain’t broke don’t fix.

  • The animations look cool, but I have several issues with the new achievement notification:
    With all the animations, it could be more distracting than before. Also, you can no longer see at a glance what the achievement is. You have a smaller window of time to see what the achievement was between the “Achievement unlocked!” and “Hold guide for details” messages. Not a big fan of the color, and most importantly: It’s hard to see the text. The text is way too small. Granted, I’m not seeing this on an HDTV, but the old achievements were really easy to read.
    A good thing, at least, is that you have to hold down the guide button to read more about the achievement. That way, you don’t accidentally bring it up if you just tap the guide button.
