UKIE to publish first digital PC games chart in February
UKIE has announced its digital chart for PC games, which has been two years in the making, will be published for the first time next month.
The basic chart will be made public with more detailed figures available to companies which share the data with UKIE.
“UKIE is committed to measuring the size of the digital games market and is delighted to announce that it will be launching a public beta of the UKIE PC Download Chart in February,” said UKIE CEO Jo Twist.
“Having this digital data alongside our UKIE Games Charts for boxed products, will allow the games industry to lobby government even more effectively, and allow our members to make informed and fact based commercial decisions.”
UKIE will continue to provide boxed game sales figures with GfK Chart-Track, and a chart featuring PSN and Xbox Live sales is the works. You can view the full press release here.
