These dynamic Challenges with rewards. Challenges > achievements
Spill 10k gallons of zombie blood by Christmas and get a reindeer mask? You're on!

They're pretty cool. Until they don't work. KI's Good Instincts challenge wouldn't unlock for anyone until like 2 days ago.

This is not new, just going to be more prominent. The first couple dead rising games had things you could unlock with achievements as well.

I buy DLC. If that makes me a "sheep" then oh well. Don't like it? Oh well, get over it.

Yeah I gotta admit...MS totally nailed that one. I'd love it if Sony took this idea as well

that's not the same at all. usually achievements just coincide with unlocks. challenges let developers add content after the games been released.

I think you are not understanding the concept of Challenges. They are post development and living (as in actively updated and changing) goals that are presented by the developer to gamers, with various rewards that are time limited. They are dynamic, time-exclusive and ever-changing, presented to the gamer almost like a news feed update to their Acheivements.

Think of the daily and weekly challenges in games like Halo multiplayer or other games, but that are not limited to multiplayer, that can have varied qualifying lengths of time to complete and that offer some reward that are usually not obtainable again once missed.

The example used here is the Reindeer mask for Dead Rising 3. If you don't meet that challenge by Chrustmas you will not be able to get that in game item again, period (or at least not until next year if they choose to recycle the challenge reward).
