TA Stats - January 25th to 31st 2016

By Chewie, 10 months ago
This report is for the period January 25th to 31st 2016.

Welcome to the stats for the tail end of January here on TA. Where did January go already? It seems like only yesterday that the Statisticles and I were huddled around a tree opening presents from each other. Well, I was opening presents from them. I'm more of a gift receiver than a gift giver. Having said that, here, take the gift of numbers arranged into tables.

Games Started
51,236 TrueAchievements gamers started a total of 73,292 games between them (2,194 different games).

8,129 TrueAchievements gamers completed a total of 10,825 games between them (1,289 different games).

132,194 TrueAchievements gamers won a total of 1,292,327 achievements online between them (58,460 different achievements).

Xbox One
As you might expect, new free title ROBLOX leads on Started and takes the top spots on Achievements Won (only three of them though). Not being available in all regions and some less than stellar ratings perhaps keep it from higher numbers, grabbing 5,800 starters. A bunch of date sensitive achievements and an apparent unobtainable keeps it from Completed entirely.

New release LEGO Marvel's Avengers settles for second but manages to beat Games with Gold freebie ZHEROS. It gets two mid-table spots on Achievements Won with Rise of the Tomb Raider claiming more spots thanks to some new DLC. Completions of the DLC put that game into ninth on Completed with 150 completions.

Despite being a sizeable list, other new releases Sparkle 2, AIPD, Level 22, Amazing Princess Sarah, The Living Dungeon, This War of Mine: The Little Ones and Sébastien Loeb Rally Evo don't make the tables at all. The previous week's new release and easy completion, Clockwork Tales: Of Glass and Ink, does appear on Completed in eighth.

Meanwhile, Fallout 4 manages to climb to the top of Completed above the usual fare whilst sales give Far Cry 4 a boost all the way up to fourth on Started.

Xbox 360
Freebies current and old continue to dominate all round though new release LEGO Marvel's Avengers (Xbox 360) does make a strong showing in terms of placement (fifth) if not in terms of numbers (fewer than 250 starters). I wish there was more to say, but there really isn't.

XBLA
XBLA is a similar story with freeness dominating. Recently added Backwards Compatible title Counter-Strike: Global Offensive keeps a high position in fourth and sales put Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon into eighth.

Windows
I may have got a little overexcited last week with the news that a major title was finally coming to the Windows 10 platform. As promised, Rise of the Tomb Raider (Win 10) shows up but it does so with a rather conservative under 100 starters and a fourth place position. I suppose it can't really be expected to compete with free. With the news that it would be imminently delisted, a few people rushed out to get Pac-Man Championship Edition DX (Toshiba) (Win 8) and ten completed it, putting it into seventh on Completed.

Genres
As another week passes without any high impact new releases, Genres remains mostly unchanged though the reduced gap between Role-Playing and Action threatens to mix things up. The only other noteworthy change is Special, which appears from off the bottom straight into sixth thanks to ROBLOX.
