The lights are on
Among Windows 8's many goals is a stronger emphasis on gaming. One way of doing this, is adding achievements to Solitaire, Minesweeper, and Majong.
Xbox360Achievements.org has all all three titles listed with their achievements. Solitaire and Minesweeper each have four achievements for 50 points, and Majong has three for 25.

I always hated minesweeper though good to see them start to marry all three platforms.
Is that an emphasis on gaming, or is it an emphasis on the arbitrary accumulation of phantom pats on the back?
Screw Halo 4....I must sweep mines.
Achievements for Minesweeper? Don't care. All I see here is another step by MS to unite all of their brands into Windows (your work) and Xbox (your play). That's all.
Not saying it's a bad thing; I'm actually liking this unification approach.
Love microsoft for trying to get computer games involved with Xbox. Really wish they would work on cross platform games to achieve this like shadowrun.
LOL! That's all I have to say. LOL!
Minesweeper Achievement: Win with 99 bombs in play.
