We've been going after them for years, trying to get the highest point ones however we could in the hopes of getting into the five-or-so digit range on our GamerScore.

New creations published by developers large and small are now available and the new Creators Program system allows any developer to quickly and directly publish their games to Xbox One and Windows 10 offering a simplified certification process and no concept approval required to be available.

Xbox One's gamescore is a way through which they can compare and contrast their achievements with friends.

"Somebody who only plays multiplayer in Halo 5 at a professional level, maybe they only have 2000 Gamerscore", Ybarra said, "[but] you want to be able to celebrate that person.

"No more splash screens means you get to fun even faster". A couple of days ago we wrote about a big UI change for Xbox One that is coming this fall but according to Windows Central there are more changes coming. Hopefully it is one of those situations where they give us something we didnt know we wanted until it was actually here.

"We can do a lot more to reflect and let people show their gaming history and their status", said Ybarra.

As it is, your Gamerscore doesn't discriminate between your favorite games and anything else you've played. The new program is pretty much the return of Xbox Indie Games from the Xbox 360.

Ybarra noted that this new system will not replace Gamerscore, but rather work alongside it to provide gamers with more ways of showcasing the things they've done and the kind of gamer they are. That way, someone who intentionally plays a lot of games with easy achievements just to boost their gamer score won't have a tremendous advantage over someone who has dedicated themselves to the mastery of a few games.
