Xbox 360 Live Arcade Achievement Policy Changing

Major Nelson confirms the rumored changes.

Earlier today an anonymous source tipped off that some changes are coming to the total number of Gamerscore points and achievements Xbox Live Arcade titles can have. Starting on April 1, each XBLA title can carry double the number of achievement points, going from 200 to 400, and 10 more total achievements, increasing from 20 to 30. Major Nelson has since confirmed this information, also revealing that starting in June, all XBLA games will mandatorily carry 400 Gamerscore points.

In addition to the XBLA title changes, DLC can now carry double the Gamerscore points as well, going from 50 to 100.  Diabolical Pitch and The Splatters (that will release in the limbo period) will continue to implement the old 200 point scheme, so it's still unknown which title will be the first to offer the increased point capacity.

Let's take a minute to go back in time to 1986. Nintendo was basking in the success of their NES console with hits like Super Mario Bros., Excitebike, and The Legend of Zelda. Meanwhile, Sega wanted to prove that the Master System was the better entertainment medium of choice. Attempting to go toe to toe with Mario, they created Alex Kidd in Miracle World. For Master System fans, the release of this game was a day to remember. According to them, it was the dawn of a new era. According to some, Mario had met his match, and Nintendo would soon crumble under Sega's mighty fist. But reality had other plans.
