By Chewie, 1 year ago
This report is for the period July 6th to 12th 2015.

Hello there chaps and chapesses of the TA world and welcome to the stats from the second week of July here on the site. As with last week, the releases are a bit thin on the ground but hopefully there's still some interesting numbers to look at.

The Big Numbers
62,016 TrueAchievements gamers started a total of 107,789 games between them (2,460 different games).

8,015 TrueAchievements gamers completed a total of 12,489 games between them (1,479 different games).

134,088 TrueAchievements gamers won a total of 2,039,894 achievements online between them (67,809 different achievements).

Xbox One

New Games with Gold freebie Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag remains the most started game on the One, despite sliding from 11,400 to 4,800 starters. Although it wouldn't be released until the following week, EA Access members got early access to EA SPORTS Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR, making it the second most started game with over 3,400 starters.

The week's massive sales put five games on the Started table, with LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham the most popular in third with 2,600 starters, followed by Goat Simulator, Borderlands 2, Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China and Saints Row IV: Re-Elected in sixth, seventh, eighth and tenth with between 1,400 and 2,200 starters. With a few easy games thrown in to the sales too, Goat Simulator, Funk of Titans, The Walking Dead: Season Two and The Walking Dead also pop up on the Completed table. Though they all sit below other recent easy title Thomas Was Alone which remains high around the 500 completion mark.

With all those sale titles, new release Spectra doesn't get a look in, though F1 2015 does as the ninth most started title.

Although it sits down in fifth on Games Started, Batman: Arkham Knight is clearly the most actually played game of the week, almost sweeping Achievements Won again if not for the single Assassin's Creed achievement up at the top.

Xbox 360
Games with Gold continues to dominate on the 360 though the sales also give us Mass Effect, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Far Cry 4 (Xbox 360), Destiny (Xbox 360) and Injustice: Gods Among Us with between 180 and 250 starters. In fact, Mass Effect, Destiny and GTA: SA prove so popular that they also make entries on Achievements Won. Although "Grand Theft Auto Online Heists" has been out for a while now, one achievement from the DLC pops up here as the fourth most won. I'm not 100% sure why but it could either be the "Ill-Gotten Gains Part 2" update, the subsequent social weekend or our very own TA Bean Dive.

New Games with Gold freebie Plants vs. Zombies continues to dominate, including getting most of the Achievements Won. The sales have their effect on XBLA too as Goat Simulator (Xbox 360), MONOPOLY Plus (Xbox 360), Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack and RISK (Xbox 360) all take their place on the table with between 130 and 720 starters. MONOPOLY also lands at the top of the Completed table thanks to its easy completion (58% of players have completed it).
