    Microsoft’s Marc Whitten has revealed another small tidbit about the Xbox One’s achievements: users can define their own color scheme for achievements, making each individual pop-up recognizable and serving as a nice little bit of personalized style in the process.

    The Xbox One’s achievement system has been overhauled in both design and functionality. Now those iconic pop-ups are sleeker and take up a smaller portion of the screen, but one of the biggest differences is the introduction of color.
    No longer are gamers stuck with the drab grey-green-white color scheme that’s been emblazoned in any achievement hunter’s psyche, and as Microsoft’s Marc Whitten put it, players are free to customize their very own color-coded achievos to show off a little style as well as avoid confusion in co-op sessions.
    Gamers can also change their chosen colors on the fly, but we’re not sure how expansive the palette is: so far teal and a dark forest green variants have been spotted, so we might see a nice medley of hues.
    The newly refined achievements are but a small portion of the Xbox One, but gamers who opt in for Microsoft’s next-gen contender will spend a fair amount of time watching those multi-colored balloons pop-up on their gaming sessions.

    Along with the color-coding, the Xbox One can also record in-game footage when an achievement is unlocked, which affords for unique opportunities for developers as well as gamers. With this feature players will not only be able to share and gloat to their Xbox LIVE friends, but upload walkthroughs to networks like Twitter to help other players unlock tougher achievements.
    Achievement recording is made possible by the console’s Game DVR, and you won’t have to worry about every small achievo getting recorded, as Marc Whitten explains:

    “It won’t be automatic for every Achievement. It’s a feature that Developers can unlock for achievements, OR, for instance, have hidden in the game for doing something cool or discovering something hidden.
    “Basically we allow developers access to GameDVR and they can put conditions on an automatic recording. But not every Achievement will automatically be recorded.”

    It will be interesting to see how gamers not only customize their achievements via color, but the unique ways that developers utilize the achievement recording feature for those hidden unlockables.

    This is excellent news, thanks for the share! But maybe you should consider mentioning something about achievements in the topic title, that way you'll get more views. :)

    This is awesome! That green looks disgusting like throw up, but the blue complements all of the other colors in this frame. Great post man.
