Consoles will get digital charts soon

A welcome step towards open digital data has been made, with new regular UK XBLA and PSN download charts in the works.

UKIE says it is preparing to offer a ranking of Xbox Live and PlayStation Network games in the UK once its PC download data is finally made public in the coming weeks.
