TA Gaming Stats - August 10th to 16th 2015

By Chewie, 2 years ago
This report is for the period August 10th to 16th 2015.

Welcome to the first in a double bill of stats this week after some dodgy internet (Statisticles chewing through the wires) last week left me unable to get this one out. Here we are with the stats for the second week of August. For the subsequent week, jump here.

The Big Numbers
62,630 TrueAchievements gamers started a total of 101,472 games between them (2,177 different games).

8,735 TrueAchievements gamers completed a total of 13,718 games between them (1,498 different games).

133,715 TrueAchievements gamers won a total of 2,004,957 achievements online between them (67,704 different achievements).

Xbox One
At the very end of this week, the new Games with Gold freebie was added with top down zombie title How to Survive: Storm Warning Edition grabbing 8,200 starters and four spots on Achievements Won, including the top three. Most of the rest of Achievements Won belongs to the second most started game, Rare Replay, which drops from 21,900 to 4,600 starters.

New releases of the week to make the table include Toy Soldiers: War Chest in fourth and Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings in eighth. The ports of Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons and The Bridge dont make the cut and neither does Commander Cherry's Puzzled Journey. However, Brothers retains its easy completion from the 360 so does pop up over on Completed as the second most completed game, sandwiched between the previous week's easy new releases Submerged and Beyond Eyes.

Xbox 360
Over on 360 the new Games with Gold is Metro: Last Light, but with one day of freeness it doesn't really establish itself yet, settling for fifth with 400 starters. Previous freebie, Metro 2033, still rules alongside Rare Replay additions Kameo: Elements of Power, Viva Piñata and Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts. All of these gain at least one place on Achievements Won, including Last Light right at the bottom, with Viva Pinata grabbing the most places at four.

Although a number of titles were on sale this week, only LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (Xbox 360) and Hitman HD Pack make the table in ninth and tenth with between 150 and 200 starters.

Rare Replay continues its dominance on XBLA, with Jetpac Refuelled stealing pole position from Banjo-Kazooie. Those two and Perfect Dark claim all the Achievements Won

Sales give TRIVIAL PURSUIT LIVE! (Xbox 360) and Max: The Curse of Brotherhood (Xbox 360) a boost into sixth and seventh whilst also allowing Syberia 2 to be the tenth most completed title.

Microsoft Solitaire Collection (UWP) manages to stay above 2,000 starters this week while Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta drops below 1,000. Solitaire also pushes Minecraft off Achievements Won, claiming the clean sweep. I look forward to more achievement-carrying Windows 10 games being released to liven these tables up.

Twins (WP) continues to do well despite dropping by half to 760 starters. Popping up into third is sale title Monster Island (WP), which grabs 125 starters and eighth place on Achievements Won.

Rare Replay continues to keep Action in first, though only barely, as it drops from 21 million to 13 million this week, less than 600,000 more than Action-Adventure in second. Card & Board still stays high with its Solitaire and Magic Duels boost, but it is beginning to drop, this time from fourth to fifth.
