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:

I just hope these two hit soon. I need to go back and play these two again.
Sweet, looks like 1000 pts. for just finishing the game, works for me.
Really looking forward to RE4 on the Xbox360.
I played it on the PS2 and loved it.
easy achievements are easy man this is like just playing the game and no side quest.
total want now i just need a price
Can't see how this is a brain teaser.
the wait is horrible..x(
Strangely, it still seems to have only 12 achievements like most Arcade releases.
omg, look at me im cool, i have points.(scrsm) pff, how the eff is this news. just give me good RE HD remakes and im happy.....points? pu-lease.
i hate trophies you get for following the story.Its better when you do something ridiculous and get it on accident. My fav trophy was from Wolverine. I released these huge mutant things and took them all out(fckin insane to do), hard work=memorable trophy
Kinda cool they're doing that!
yess. i was hoping they'd give these games more achievement points. it's just so much to do in them that it would be an injustice to not give these games their well deserved achievements. good stuff capcom.
when will this be on the xbox live store?
Achievement whores rejoice!
whell this is on my gamer list it looks bad ass since resident evil is on the top four but evean thogh the best games still has a down fall
can anyone tell me the differences between the two games? im gonna have to decide which one to buy
