The lights are on
Has Capcom found a workaround to Microsoft's stingy achievement rules? To date, all retail games are awarded 1,000 achievement points, and all Arcade games, no matter their size, only 200. Capcom's upcoming Resident Evil: Code Veronica X HD and Resident Evil 4 games will both offer 1,000 achievement points, despite being download only. The reason for the higher points is that both games fall under Xbox Live's Games on Demand, not Arcade.
These games will have a retail presence in Japan, but stateside gamers will have to download them. This is a strange precedent for Microsoft. The only other similar case we know of is Death Smiles 2X, a shoot-em-up that was not localized for North America but was released via Games on Demand nonetheless.
So if you're a developer of an Xbox Live Arcade game, and want your title to have 1,000 achievement points, release at least one retail copy on Xbox 360 in a region somewhere in the world, and then tell Microsoft it should be listed under Games on Demand.
Here are the achievements for Code Veronica via Xbox360Achievements.org:

Yes can't wait. I havn't played RE4 since the ps2, so I'm very excited to play it on my 360.
They forgot the Resident Evil 4 achievement:
1 Shot, 37 Kills (100g): Obtain the Infinite Rocket Launcher
One of the very few games I haven't beat was also one of the best. Me and my brother rented RE4, got to the end, then had to take it back (one of the reasons I stopped renting games). 1000pts means I really have no reason not to get it, unless it's overpriced but I can always wait.
i still have yet to beat this game and now theres nothing stopping me (except that its not out yet) cant wait for it
I'm sure achievement *** rushed to click on this page lol
Looks like you get 90% of the achievements just for playing through the game a single time. Oh well, I'm a huge RE fan. Easy achievements and all in HD may be enough to convince me to buy them again at some point.
I have both those on gamecube, it'll be great to have them on my console and play them while online. I'll finally get to unlock everything that was inthe ps2 version of Re4! :D
