The Transformers Xbox Achievement We Didn't Expect To Earn

Ten days after the release of the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was released, I earned an Achievement in the game that suggests the game has either slow sales, low online adoption or some other peculiarity.

When does an Achievement reveal too much?

The Transformers Revenge of the Fallen game was released on June 23, but it was 10 days later, on July 4 that I started playing the game. After completing one level, I earned the Good Mojo Achievement.

The description for the Achievement: "Make it into the Top 10000 on SP Leaderboards - Either Campaign."

In the long run, that Achievement will be a badge of accomplishment for people who managed to rack up a lot of points while playing this game. But, by definition, the first 10,000 people to both get the game for the Xbox 360, finish at least one level in single-player and connect to Live will earn the Good Mojo accolade.

So, 10 days after the game was released, 10,000 people had not yet done that. Does that reveal a slow start in sales? A low percentage of active Xbox Live connections among owners and renters of the game? Or an ignoring of the single-player campaign?

I'm not sure and have asked Activision for comment. If anyone out there is getting the game now and earning the Achievement with as little effort as I did, let us know.

    yeh i did

    I had a similiar moment on the ps3. After playing the first post-tutorial level, I received the 100K, 10K and 1K medals. I thought it was a glitch in the game, then had a good laugh when I realised what they were for. Especially considering I wasn't very good at the game anyway.

      I got all three too. However, I didn't get the 1K one until I did moderately well on a later level. I took it as a sign that people aren't playing through the game, as it is extremely repetitious.

      Lol that was the same for me on the Xbox360 i then checked leaderboards to see i was in Top rank for the tutorial level on autobots campaign
      but 2 hours later i was knocked down to 200...
      Hah going by the article i couldnt imagine being dropped any further :P

    I thought I'd throw my 2 cents in and mention that I bought and finished the single player campaigns for boths sides, but did so without an Internet connection. No achievement for me.

    I got the 1K one on the first level...turned it off after that because it was BOOOOOORING!
