While we've been aware that the Xbox One's achievement system will have some fluidity to it since the system was revealed in May, it turns out that it has color-coding options as well. As Xbox Corporate VP Marc Whitten explained via Twitter, the system's achievements are in a player's "chosen color," which is more evident in a recent Microsoft Studios livestream on Twitch of Powerstar Golf.

At the 11:15 mark in the video, a blue achievement pops up indicating which of the two players earned the "Valuable Commodity" award. When players earned achievements during multiplayer sessions on Xbox 360 games, the color was always grey, while the circular controller indicator showed who earned it. Now we wonder just how fancy our achievements can look on Xbox One; perhaps Microsoft has included gold trim options or patterns such as a gorgeous, chatoyant finish?
