Xbox Game Room has 56 achievements to unlock

Friday, 19th March 2010 10:12 GMT By Johnny Cullen


The achievements list for Xbox Game Room has appeared online, showing you’ll get a full 1000 point achievement list for your troubles.

The list looks easy enough, but for one achievement, you need to tally up 36 hours playtime for 20GS. Best rack up them hours on them Arcade games, then.

You can find the full achievement list for it at Inside MGC (via Joystiq).

Game Room is due out on Wednesday for Xbox 360. It was announced earlier this year at CES in January.

    Interesting to see the achievements are tied to the game room itself and not to the individual games. Looks like the games themselves are going to be awarding ‘medals’ instead, which then count towards your achievements.

    This could possibly turn out okay if they’d announce some games that anyone actually wants to play.

    aren’t all the games like 30 years old

    the near release of final fight on XBLA should have been one of these arcade titles

    it needs direct ports of street fighter 3 and darkstalkers and sunset riders and the simpsons arcade

    this arcade room is supposed to be about nostalgia right? i can see this only appealing to 40 year old men and no one else

    great idea! but until it fills the arcade with games from the past 15 years i’m not interested, you know all the classic scrolling beat em ups and 2d fighters….you know, the games that are popular in arcades

    but i bet as soon as they start getting more recent games, the price will go up, 1 pound a credit for this 10 year old game….then it’ll really feel like an arcade :P

    I think the selection of games is rubbish too. Where’s Sega Rally or Daytona? No Virtua Fighter or Time Crisis?

    Then there’s all the classic 2D scrolling fighter games like Aliens, Aliens Vs Predator, Simpsons, Turtles in Time (that crap 3D remake doesn’t count), etc.

    Until Microsoft get some decent titles signed up, I don’t know why they’re even bothering to promote this. How many classic compilations has Centipede been re-released in now?

    Looking at the list of whats going to be on there it seems MS have selected the oldest of the old. Virtua Fighter, Time Crisis and the like are to ‘new’.

    I’m guessing they’re planning to release the oldest stuff first and move forwards in time slowly, but if they do that they risk putting people off almost straight away. If they want to stick to gaming’s earlier years initially they should’ve at least included a decent glob of stuff from the whole of the 80s. I can’t imagine many people champing at the bit to buy Centipede. Again.

    can you imagine the amount of money capcom would make if final fight was one of these arcade titles instead of an XBLA game

    i think you could easily find 10 people who would pop one credit in this virtual arcade to play final fight, for every 1 person who’d buy the XBLA title….and this way you still get all the people buying the arcade game anyway

    I’m guessing the way this works is that your avatar interacts with an arcade machine in the room, then plays the game actually on that machine, allowing you to pull away from it at any time?
    If so i cant really see anything with advanced gfx working in this. More ‘impressive looking’ games would need to be downloaded and booted up separately like any other digital game, especially anything in 3D.

    Ofcourse maybe thats not how this thing works, i’m not to sure.

    If they released the Simpsons Arcade game that’d be Epic!

    Nah, it doesn’t work like that at all, Geki. Once you’ve gone up to a machine you get the original thing full-screen (or bordered, depending on the game). You don’t actually have to stare over your avatar’s shoulder.

    The games are downloaded, btw. You can’t just walk up and play one, you actually have to download it and install it into your arcade first.
