TRADE BODY UK Interactive Entertainment (UKIE) has announced that it is making preparations for a chart system for Xbox and Playstation digital games.
The charts will rank the popularity of games on the Xbox Live Arcade (XBLA) and Playstation Network (PSN), according to MVC. The firm will move onto consoles after it completes its PC version over the next few weeks.
Andy Payne, chairman of UKIE said, "We're in conversations about XBLA and PSN, because they are very important as well."
"You could argue that we should have started with that. And I wouldn't disagree. At the time, people were touchy about data. But attitudes have changed amongst content owners and platform holders."
Payne said that the Xbox and Playstation charts will be easier to pull together than the PC version. Digital distribution of games and other content is on the upswing. Users now rely on and enjoy gaming services over the internet without leaving their homes. µ
