Confirmed: Xbox Live Gamerscore cap to be raised to 400 from April onwards
Good news, achievement hounds; a rumoured increase to XBLA Achievements has been made official.
Microsoft’s Larry Hryb – Major Nelson – confirmed earlier reports in a blog post.
Starting next month all new Xbox Live Arcade games will have the choice of increasing Gamerscore points from 200 to 400, with the addition of up to 30 achievements.
He further revealed that this Gamerscore increase will be made mandatory for all new Xbox Live Arcade games from June 2012 onwards.
The achievement cap increase will make Arcade purchases a more tempting proposition for those keen to secure their virtual bragging rights.
