So... will Microsoft allow us to get anymore achievements with the updates? Like some of the ones on PC?

No. Achievements cannot be added with updates. They can only be added with the release of DLC. Until 4J Studios decide to give us our first DLC, then we will never see new achievements.

I can't remember exactly what was said about this, but I remember seeing things said before about this and how 'title updates' don't allow new achievements to be added, only with DLC can achievements be added, but having a DLC update to add achievements alone would most likely still involve a cost, which most people might not be prepared to do!

EDIT: Damn, beaten to it D: haha!

Nope, it's microsofts policy to only allow additional achievements in DLC.  Though you may see some that you have to pay for.

Damn! What about skin packs? They're DLC.
I've also gotten achievements on halo reach without the DLC's.
It could still work couldn't it?

Correct me if I'm wrong, arcade games have a restriction of 400 G or less. So that's why there is probably not going to be any free achievements. Although I want Achievement DLC to at least yeild 400 G and 80 MS.
I'm secretly stupid. But don't tell anyone.

Do you mean in terms of, that you've noticed new achievements listed for you on Halo Reach, despite not having downloaded the DLC to get said achievements? if so, then I think its because when DLC is added that introduces new achievements, they are automatically added to everyones achievement list for that game, regardless of if they have the DLC or not! Which is stupid in some ways, as I've completed the original 50/50 achievements for Saints Row 3 and got 1000G on it, but it won't appear on my 'Completed Games' area as a result of the DLC achievements being present :/ so I'd have to buy the DLC and complete all those new achievements in order for it to be added there now!

Why would you want more achievments anyway? They don't 'give' you anything. The gamerpoints are worthless.

Tell you what. I give you a +1 if you mine 10 stacks of each item/block, and prove it with screenshots and leaderboard scores etc. ;)

Under the new terms, the base Gamerscore you'll get from an Xbox Live Arcade game will rise from 200 to 400 points or 30 Achievements, with another 100 points or eight achievements - eight achievements per financial quarter - possible via DLC.

In total, Xbox Live Arcade games could offer up to 800 Gamerscore or 62 achievements. Compare that to an upper limit of 350 Gamerscore or 35 achievements under the existing policy.

A beautiful trap to lure the achievement hungry into purchasing DLC.  You think you completed this game?  Well, think again buddy!

They better add more...I completed all the achievements within a few days. It gives the game more of a reason to play.

Maybe they can do a really really cheap DLC that adds close to nothing maybe something small but achievements and charge $1.00 for it or something. That would be alright with me. Considering the crap other games put out as DLC's and charge 19.99 for that would be pretty decent.

Actually if your part of the Xbox live rewards then you can get ms points back when you spend points depending on how many gamer points you've got. At the min if you've got over 25000 gamer points you only get 2% of what you spend back plus a birthday present but new bonus' are added every now and again.

More achievments would make the game more challenging, I know people like me strive to get all the acheivements (bragging rights) and even some more unlockable gear? But we all know Microsoft isn't THAT generous.

Anyone can make up their own list of additional achievements.  Then, build an individual achievement hall fo reach person in that world, craft a cake in the game for every achievement reached, and display them with signs saying what they're for.
