Pretty sure they've said that achievements will only be in the Steam version of the game. In other words, there'll only be Steam achievements, and not in-game pop-ups from in physical copies of the game, or from GOG.com or whatever. 

Steam Version is the Superior Edition.

There have been two other threads on this already. They had polls, and a clear majority of folks don't want them in PoE.

 

While I do think they work in some games, I don't think they have a place in an infinity engine inspired game focused on story.

Your statement should be: a clear majority of the minority of contributors who visit the boards and bothered to vote in an unscientific poll. In other words, a tiny minority with strong views.

 

Do you have a link to these polls? I don't recall seeing them.

Thanks. So 141 votes out of 74K contributors, or 2%. It may or may not be statistically valid.

Once people figure out how to monetize acheevs (and they are already starting to), then people's tunes are going to change right-quick.
