Like a thief in the night, Microsoft just can’t stop wrapping its grubby mitts around other people’s stuff. According to a rundown of Microsoft’s new MyXbox service over at Gamestop, the Xbox 360 will soon reward players with Medals to compliment their Achievements.

“Microsoft will also institute a new medal system so you can show off your most recent achievements,” the article reads. “Medals are basically graphical representations of achievements, kind of like graphical badges or trophies.”

Even so, we’re not prepping an angry internet petition for Microsoft or anything. After all, at least it hasn’t unveiled a brazen Wii-mote clone.
