TA Stats - November 16th to 22nd 2015

By Chewie, 10 months ago
This report is for the period November 16th to 22nd 2015.

Welcome to the stats for the middle of November here on TA. Yet another big release hit the Xbox this week, one in a series close to my heart but one that I'm shunning because I don't feature in it. Not even in the background!

The Big Numbers
77,148 TrueAchievements gamers started a total of 113,110 games between them (2,026 different games).

10,990 TrueAchievements gamers completed a total of 14,318 games between them (1,158 different games).

165,382 TrueAchievements gamers won a total of 1,812,981 achievements online between them (53,830 different achievements).

Xbox One
New release Star Wars Battlefront takes the lead with over 24,000 starters. That's considerably fewer than the over 60,000 Fallout 4 and Halo 5: Guardians managed on their debut weeks, and even 10,000 fewer than Call of Duty: Black Ops III, though it's 14,000 more than Assassin's Creed Syndicate got. With a fairly big drop in the number of earners between the top two and the rest of the list, Star Wars only grabs a couple of places at the top of Achievements Won, with the rest going to Fallout

Meanwhile, the week's other release, Games with Gold freebie Knight Squad, takes second with 8,000 starters whilst Deadpool doesn't manage to take a place.

The release of the final episode finally puts Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series into the top of Completed with 3,600 completions. Knight Squad also takes a high spot in third with almost 800 completions, though that may disguise the apparently rather frustrating mostly luck-based list. Just a week after release, Fallout jumps into the middle of Complete as over 300 finish it up already.

Xbox 360
New Games with Gold freebie Dungeon Siege III can't topple its predecessor DiRT 3, grabbing 1,200 starters and only a single spot in third on Achievements Won. Backwards Compatibility again dominates the tables whilst The Great TrueAchievement Score Challenge 2015 heating up sees the notorious Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Burning Earth as the third most completed title.

Although it was only free in Brazil as an alternative to Dungeon Siege III, being Backwards Compatible and with the ease of switching regions on the One means Joy Ride Turbo takes the lead on XBLA with almost 690 starters and two spots at the very top and very bottom of Achievements Won.

As on the One, the final episode of Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series (Xbox 360) sends it straight to the top of Completed with 570 completions and eight spots on Achievements Won. The Spartacus Legends completions also continue to grow, going over 100 this week. Right now the game sits at 1,160 completions, edging closer to my arbitrary target of 1,500 before closure.

Fallout manages to hold Role-Playing at the top of Genres, despite a solid effort by Star Wars to send Shooter into first. Knight Squad sends Action from seventh to fourth.

After weeks of big releases, next week will be a relatively quiet one so it'll be up to the recent blockbusters to see who has the longest shelf life.
