UKIE calls for PC download chart support

Trade association UKIE has called on publishers to sign-up to its download chart for PC games.

The body has already seen leading publishers sign up, including EA, Focus Multimedia, Kalypso Media, Mastertronic, NCSoft, Sega, Sony DADC, THQ, Square Enix, Ubisoft and Warner Bros.

A close-beta trial is currently underway, however, there’s a number of key players in the PC space still not signed up. And UKIE has extended an invitation to those companies to get in touch and contribute.

"The UKIE membership has rallied behind this project and has worked tirelessly to overcome issues as they arose," said UKIE Chairman Andy Payne.

"They have shown a deep understanding of the importance of the project and the value of the end product that we are working towards.

"Our boxed charts are second to none and we want our digital charts to attain the same level of respect and trust. Therefore, we are now inviting all companies developing, publishing and distributing PC digital games in the UK to contact UKIE to discuss how they can get involved."

The digital chart would be used as part of the Gfk Chart-Track’s weekly, monthly and annual chart data.
