New evidence found on Xbox360achievements.org suggests that Windows 8 branded games will allow you to unlock Xbox 360 Achievements on the PC. The site lists games such as Minesweeper and Microsoft Mahjong as Windows 8 titles that will support achievements.
I have to say, I never expected to ever get an Xbox Achievement in Minesweeper (well, I guess I can’t really say I play it much either) but the idea is interesting. This should play out well for full-fledged PC titles, as achievements do add a sense of accomplishment to games in a way. Kind of like a virtual pat on the back.
