It's quite funny that we almost didn't get the cheevo notifications, the best part imo.

Very interesting article, and actually surprising.  It's not the typical corporate articles you find on xbox.com.  Jesse Schell gave a great presentation at DICE earlier this year about the psychology of achievements and how it's going to affect the future.  The guy is like the Willy Wonka of videogames.   :D

I'll see if I can find the full video.




EDIT:  Found it.

The whole thing get's real bizarre around Part 3, 1min30sec.  This is what got a lot of negative paranoia outrage on the internet about Jesse Schell working for "Big Brother" and "SkyNet".  He's just predicting what's bound to come.  Don't kill the messenger, yo.
