The Big Numbers

78,634 TrueAchievements gamers started a total of 123,381 games between them (2,213 different games).

6,889 TrueAchievements gamers completed a total of 9,087 games between them (1,178 different games).

138,890 TrueAchievements gamers won a total of 1,713,183 achievements online between them (54,321 different achievements).

Xbox One
This week's big new release, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, takes the lead as the most started game with 15,000 starters and eight places on Achievements Won. Mad Max is the week's next biggest release but has to settle for third behind Evolve, which grabs over 10,600 starters thanks to being made free for the weekend. It also grabs those last two spots on Achievements Won, denying Max of a place.

With all that happening, the new Games with Gold freebie and new release The Deer God takes fourth with 8,000 starters whilst Goat Simulator pops up in tenth thanks to a single day of freeness. Unfortunately, plenty of other new releases don't make the grade, including Super Toy Cars, Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart, Quest of Dungeons and Broken Sword 5 – The Serpent's Curse, though Super Toy Cars has an easy completion, putting it in ninth on Completed.

Recent easy release Whispering Willows still leads on Completed, this time climbing up from 300 to over 500 completions whilst the boost in players puts Goat Simulator into second. Finally, a new update, "Update 17.1: Echoes of the Sentient", puts Warframe into seventh with 120 completions.

Xbox 360
The changeover of Games with Gold is what dominates the 360 as new freebie Battlestations: Pacific grabs almost 2,500 starters and half the spots on Achievements Won. New release Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (Xbox 360) is sandwiched between the two Metros in third with under 400 starters, meaning the One version got around 38 times more players. Meanwhile, Assassin's Creed Rogue gabs eighth with almost 170 starters thanks to the week's sale.

The single day of freeness also applied to Goat Simulator (Xbox 360) so naturally it takes first place with 1,200 starters, fills up Achievements Won and leads on Completed. Elsewhere, the week's sale plonks Assassin's Creed Liberation HD into tenth with over 80 starters.

The previous week's new release, Age of Empires: Castle Siege (Win 10), continues to sit in second between Microsoft Solitaire Collection (UWP) and Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta, though its number of starters dives from 870 to 400. The completions also drop off from 40 to 20, putting the games from second to sixth. The drop also allows Solitare to reclaim Achievements Won, grabbing all but the bottom slot on the table.

Windows Phone
Two welcome new releases on Windows Phone arrive in the forms of Doodle God Blitz (WP) and Imperia Online (WP), but neither manages to topple Twins (WP) from the top spot even though that game drops from 1,070 to 580 starters. All three claim places on Achievements Won though Twins only claims a single spot at the top with the other two sharing out the rest.

Next week we don't get any massive new releases, but there's a handful of indie releases that will try and make the tables. Oh, and some castles will be crashing the party.
