By Chewie, 2 years ago
This report is for the period November 2nd to 8th 2015.

Welcome to part two of our stats double dip (part one here) with the third week of blockbuster releases in a row.

The Big Numbers
90,789 TrueAchievements gamers started a total of 133,785 games between them (2,059 different games).

15,446 TrueAchievements gamers completed a total of 19,552 games between them (1,182 different games).

160,104 TrueAchievements gamers won a total of 1,964,155 achievements online between them (54,809 different achievements).

Xbox One
New release https://www.trueachievements.com/Call-of-Duty-Black-Ops....htm grabs over 34,000 starters and half the spaces on Achievements Won, though not the top spot, which goes to freebie Pneuma: Breath of Life. That easy game is the second most started game with 25,000 starters and the most completed game with almost 7,800 completions. The week's other major new release, Need for Speed, grabs fourth with 6,000 starters behind the previous week's Halo 5: Guardians which slips to 7,000, down from its massive release week 65,000 starters. Other new releases Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations and The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy's Grand Adventure don't make the tables. The week's sales put Spectra into ninth with 830 starters.

Xbox 360
New Games with Gold freebie DiRT 3 leads with 3,600 starters, way above new release https://www.trueachievements.com/Call-of-Duty-Black-Ops....htm, which takes 340. DiRT 3 also manages to grab every spot on Achievements Won. The week's sale puts Killer is Dead into eighth with 100 starters.

Although it didn't get enough starters to make that table, the easy completion of new release Barbie and her Sisters Puppy Rescue puts it straight into fifth on Completed. Recent sale title Dead Island Riptide (Xbox 360) also pops up there in tenth.

Previous freebie The Walking Dead (Xbox 360) settles down to numbers matching the rest of the table this week though it still leads on both tables and sweeps Achievements Won clean. The week's sale and an easy completion put Monster Jam Battlegrounds into sixth on Started with 130 starters and fourth on Completed with 50 completions. With news of its impending server closure, along with Triple Fame throughout November, over 80 players decided to start Spartacus Legends to try and grind out the completion before it's too late whilst almost 30 reach that goal. I wonder if we'll hit 1,000 completions for the game before the server closes. Right now we're 893 so let's do a weekly completion watch to find out.

Although last week's new release Trucking 3D (Win 8) slips from second to fourth this week, it does appear on Completed in fourth with almost 30 completions thanks to an achievement fixing patch making the game completable.

It's the same over on WP as Trucking 3D (WP) grabs second on Completed with the patched achievements. Unlike on Windows, it doesn't lose its second place position on Started. Runemals (WP) still easily leads on both Started and Achievements Won.
