Achievements on the Xbox have been a staple of the franchise since the launch of the Xbox 360, with 1000 Gamer Score given to each game. With the inclusion of Xbox Live Arcade titles each of them got a cap of 200 Gamer Score at launch and in the past couple of years that has been bumped up to 400 and for the Xbox One it's now 1000. Add on DLC to the mix and you have games reaching upwards of 1,600 Gamer Score.
