I finished Hardcore/very easy about two days ago and got the achievement so this is possible, but I have also heard things just like you about difficulty affecting it, all I did was strictly the main story.
Playing the game on HARD difficulty will not get you any achievement nor will it get you and extra experience per kill or quest or anything, it just makes the game more difficult. You can get acheivements on any difficulty.
