Microsoft is serious about breaking down the traditional walls between Xbox Live Arcade and retail titles. No longer will exclusively digital games get the short end of the gamerscore stick.

XBLA Fans reports that every Xbox One game will have 1,000 gamerscore attached to it. This includes cross-platform titles like Halo: Spartan Assault, which will have fewer allocated points on Xbox 360.

Our Take
For achievement hunters, this is great news. It’s further evidence of Microsoft’s push for parity in the marketplace, and ensures that gamers won’t presume quality on the basis of whether something exists as in retail packaging or not.
