These updates first came to prominence in 2020 when publisher Xitilon began adding simple lists of five achievements worth 1,000 Gamerscore each via free updates to its back catalog of games. This proved divisive at the time among the achievement hunting community, with some saying it devalued Gamerscore.
Since then, many developers and publishers have jumped on the game's easy update bandwagon, including eastasiasoft, which added nearly 20,000GB in easy title updates in one fell swoop early last year. Now the publisher has done the same thing again.
We recently got 18 game updates worth 1000GB each across 18 games, 16 of which are from Eastasiasoft. The two games that are not from eastasisoft are Taco Tom 2 and Akinofa. Here is the complete list:
Xbox games updated with easy title updates of up to 1000GB
Last year, we saw Microsoft trying to clamp down on easy Gamerscore titles by introducing changes to the rules governing achievements.

As part of our Xbox 2024 predictions, we think Microsoft could put an end to easy 1,000GB title updates this year with more rule changes.
