Microsoft Tries To Patent Achievements For Watching TV

Many gamers were bitterly disappointed with Microsoft’s attempts to move away from being a console and instead become more like a TV.  Instead of alleviating fears, it seems that Microsoft are making them worse and with the revelation that they tried to patent unlocked achievements for watching your TV it seems as if Microsoft are more occupied with ensuring the Xbox One has its gaming aspect added in as a bare bones minimum. We can only imagine what can achievements they wanted to unlock, maybe an achievement for watching a Microsoft ad or mocking achievements for watching an Apple ad, but in all honesty it doesn’t look great for players either way. Such an attempt comes off as an embarrassment for the company and we all wait with baited breath to see just how they plan to win back gamers, having driven them off in drones with their antics so far.
