Kinect PlayFit Oversight

Issues & Bug Reports

This might have been an oversight and might have been implemented before the XboxOne app achievement system. Kinect PlayFit is an Xbox 360 App and it actually has achievements! So shouldn't this app count towards the Apptastic badges? The description doesn't say Xbox One only.

Apptastic
Unlock 10 app achievements on your gamertag.

I know that this is an old thread; but I'm curious if this was ever addressed. There is no reply to Marv and I'm not sure how to check....

Personally I would say yes. Eric would have to link it to the badge though being a 360 app I'm not sure what that would entail or if it was possible.. I don't think it would be that hard, but I could be wrong.

Status changed to 'Resolved' - Thanks for the bump! This is now fixed. I have reclassified Kinect PlayFit as an app. As a result, this title is now excluded from gamer completion totals and completed game listings.

I'm at a loss, I guess MS wanted people to use the app, but then when the One apps came out they decided to not make them have gamerscore because it wouldn't be fair to those people that actually did something besides watch a show to get gamerscore.

Because it is now classified as an app, which Microsoft does as well (you find it under apps on the 360) it won't count as a Gane towards Kinect-ed or King of Kinect badges. I seem to recall this being the only app with gamerscore (please, correct me if I'm wrong), so it may have just been Microsoft testing the waters before releasing the Xbox One with app achievements.

I went through just about all the 360 apps and this was the only one that had achievements. This was well over a year ago tho, but I doubt anything has changed.
