By Chewie, 2 years ago
This report is for the period October 5th to 11th 2015.
Welcome to the stats for the first full week of October here on TA, which saw yet more new releases as well as the conversion of a title's pricing model to completely free.

The Big Numbers
53,269 TrueAchievements gamers started a total of 75,413 games between them (2,076 different games).

6,750 TrueAchievements gamers completed a total of 8,672 games between them (1,178 different games).

133,787 TrueAchievements gamers won a total of 1,275,662 achievements online between them (54,684 different achievements).

Xbox One
Despite some new releases, free Games with Gold title Valiant Hearts: The Great War remains the most started game with 8,600 starters. It also sits comfortably on top of Completed with 1,600 completions. The most popular of the new releases are Rock Band 4 and Battle Islands in second and third with over 5,200 and 4,200 starters each. Rock Band also manages to slip two achievements onto Achievements Won in seventh and eighth, denying Valiant Hearts the clean sweep.

Other new releases Onigiri and Transformers: Devastation also make the bottom of Started though Teslapunk, Elite: Dangerous, Three Fourths Home: Extended Edition, Monkey Pirates and Kaiju Panic miss out. Easy completions do put Three Fourths Home and Monkey Pirates into third and fourth on Completed though. Tales from the Borderlands also manages to jump up into fifth on Started thanks to the first episode being made free.

Xbox 360
The current and previous Games with Gold freebies, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (Xbox 360) and Crysis 3, remain on top of Started and dominate Achievements Won along with three The Taken King achievements. The week's sale also puts Escape Dead Island in a high third place position with 150 starters, despite less than glowing reviews.

After a couple of weeks with both Saints Row: The Third and Saints Row IV on Completed thanks to fixed achievements, the Third game drops off the table this week though IV remains in fourth.

The freeness of the first episode has the same effect for Tales from the Borderlands (Xbox 360) on XBLA as it does on the One though with smaller numbers overall it manages to easily claim the top spot with 380 starters and seven places on Achievements Won.

Finally a new Windows 10 release in Microsoft Bingo (Win 10) gives us something new to look at. It shoots to the top spot with 680 starters and six places on Achievements Won. It doesn't get the top spot there though thanks to Project Spark (Win 8), which grabs three places including the top one, as well as a boost of starters to fourth with 170 starters, and completions to sixth with almost 15 completions; all thanks to the game not only being made free but also having some achievements get easier unlock requirements.

New release Briquid Mini (WP) is denied the top spot as Doodle God Blitz (WP) continues to lead, settling instead for second. It doesn't even manage to break onto Achievements Won either.

Action-Adventure continues to lead a merry dance way above everything else. After its recent boost, Sports continues to drop down the table, this time from third to fourth. Lower down the table, Rock Band pushes Music & Rhythm into eighth below Special which gets its own boost into seventh thanks to the jump in achievements earned in Project Spark.
