According to a statement from Microsoft, the Xbox One saw 81 percent growth compared to October 2014. Staying on message, it said "the strength of the greatest games lineup in Xbox history," including October's top-selling game Halo 5: Guardians, helped drive "record Xbox Live" usage for the month, as well as put the console above its competitors.

I am pleasantly surprised to see Rock Band 4 charting.

Other than that the top 10 looks to be what I would have expected. (Though Uncharted Collection charting is a bit of a surprise for me I figure most of the copies out there came from bundles.)
