TrueAchievements given Microsoft thumbs up

Xbox 360 Achievement tracking and statistics website has been granted an Xbox Community Developer License - and has celebrated with a site relaunch.

The site, which offers an alternative scoring system for achievements based on their difficulty, now has direct access to Microsoft's Xbox Live GamerScore information allowing them to track their members' game progress in more detail and with greater accuracy.

Gamers can now easily follow and comment on their friends' achievement and game activity on their Facebook-style friend feeds, as well as organize gaming sessions to help with those harder-to-obtain achievements.

Their plans for this year include full-game walkthroughs, community TrueAchievement score competitions and events, gaming partner recommendations and a whole host of additional statistical analysis.

The site recently smashed through the 50,000 registered members barrier, and expects to comfortably double that number before the end of 2010.
