I think you mean delete zero achievement point games? I haven't listened to the new podcast yet, so I'm guessing that's what was meant. I'm not sure why someone would want to delete actual points...

"You can remove any games from your games played list that you have earned no achievements or gamerscore. Press the Xbox 360– guide button, navigate left to the games section and choose Achievements. From here choose the game with zero gamerscore you want to remove and press X (Delete Game History.)"

That's the official Microsoft line, but on the bombcast they mentioned that there is a way (that sounds like some sort of a glitch) to remove achievements.

yes, but there is apparently a way to get rid of achievements as well. In fact they were specifically citing how you could potentially round off nasty scores by deleting the oddly numbered achievements (such as the 2 point achievement in the Orange Box). I'm curious as well, even though I would never do it.

I had a problem finding this too after I heard about it on Bombcast. I didn't know about that Guide menu, but ever since I found it most of my problems with the NXE have been addressed.

Are you guys embarrassed that you played a free game or something?

"Woah, look at this loser who played that Dorito game. 1 STAR!"

I'm gonna give this a bump. Is there a way? I'd love to delete my one, five-point Perfect Dark Zero achievement, as I don't even have that game any more.

Not sure if I heard the same bombcast, I remember someone vaguely mentioning something like that once, but they openly said they didn't really know what they were talking about.

The only way I think you can do this would be the same way you illegally gain achievements, you have to hack your box and change the hex values then somehow get live to ovveride that information. I'm not sure if it can work if your account is on live, maybe it can maybe it can't.

Either way, officially there is no way to do so.
