Ladies and gentlemen and more, welcome to the first (and hopefully not last) iteration of the PlayStation Store charts weekly threads.
Before going more in depth on the methodology and the details concerning the rankings, for transparency there is something pretty important that I need to preface: there are pretty high possibilities that I will not be able to handle these threads in the future. Due to several circumstances, which may or may not involve a change of how much time I spend in online spaces in general, I won't probably be able to work on these threads continuously. Despite all of this, since this is a new initiative for the forum, I wanted to provide a starting guidance and framework for the users who will decide that they want to take over the threads in the future.

Speaking of which, *ahem*

We are looking for people for the PS Store threads! More specifically:
- one main user who will handle the creation of the threads
- more users who are eager to contribute with the PS Store rankings from different countries


The call for volunteers will be also more properly posted in the official topic for building Install Base; if you're eager to give your contribution and you think you're able to do so, don't hesitate to get in touch with the moderation team!

And now, onto the details of the threads

Where can I find the charts that are posted in these threads?

First of all, access to the official PlayStation website (we'll use the US version for this example - https://www.playstation.com/en-us/?country-selector=true)
Then, click on the "Store" tab at the top of the page;

a small window menu will open and you need to click on the "Buy games" tab.

This will bring you to the web page of the PlayStation Store. Now, click on the "Browse" tab right at the top of the page.

And thanks to this, you're now looking at the "Best Selling" ranking; this is the default option of the page. To check the "Most Downloaded" ranking instead, just use the Sort filter and click on the Most Downloaded tab.

Which charts will be posted?

As you might've guessed from the previous explanation, the two kinds of charts that we're aiming to watch closely are the Best Selling chart and the Most Downloaded chart; the former features games ordered by Revenue, while the latter is ordered by Downloads. More specifically, we're going to focus on the first page of each ranking (therefore, the respective Top 24 games). These charts capture revenue, sales and downloads across both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 combined; this means that for games such as MLB The Show 24, available on both, its placement on the rankings will be the sum of its performances across the two systems.

While the intent of these threads is to focus on PS4 + PS5 charts, separate rankings for both are also available on the same PS Store page: just check towards the bottom on the page, in the "See more" section. Once you click on either the PS4 Games or PS5 Games tabs, you'll be redirected to a list of games that by default is ordered by Release Date; on there, just use the Sort filter to change the order into the two aforementioned options.

Important: Both rankings are characterised by specific caveats that need to be taken into account for having a better understanding of them
  • The Best Selling ranking includes the revenue coming from DLCs and MTXs alongisde full purchases (as highlighted by the likes of Fortnite and Genshin Impact being as high as they are)
  • The Most Downloaded ranking includes both downloads of games that are part of the PlayStation Plus catalog, as well as - going by experience - demos.

Additional infos on the charts

Contrary to other rankings, such as the Amazon best-selling charts and the current eShop charts, that are updated multiple times per day, the PlayStation Store rankings are refreshed only once every 24 hours.
As of right now, there isn't complete certainty about the trailing period the rankings are based on. By empirical observation, one week could be a good guess, but these threads may also become a good opportunity to get full clarity on this.
Recommendation: if you want to post the picture of the full Top 24s and if you're a Google Chrome user, lower your zoom on the page down to 67%; that should make you able to capture it in its entirety at a decent size for readability.

And now, time to let the rankings talk (the US ones, at least)! ...on the second post though, this one is pretty busy already.
