The recently-announced Xbox One is coming with new ways earn achievements playing your favorite games, but TV achievements might be coming as well. That’s right. Achievements for sitting on your butt and watching TV.
Microsoft applied for a patent that details a feature that would give users achievements for watching television. The patent is called “Awards and Achievements Across TV Ecosystem,” and it basically will reward television viewers with achievements in a similar way that Xbox rewards gamers for completing certain tasks in games.
Maybe earning points for watching a show or achievements for watching an entire season of a TV series. The patent doesn’t connect it with XBox One, but it would make a lot of sense.
