Ladies and gentlemen and more, welcome to a new iteration of the PlayStation Store charts weekly threads.
But first, like I did for the last week's thread (although not as strongly as I did previously), I need to preface that while I can manage to be the thread opener for now, due to my other duties here on the forum as well as other circumstances I cannot guarantee that I will be able to be the main person handling these threads continuously. Still, since this is still 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* (higher pitch, to get a reaction)

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 is 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, including me!

And now, time for the rest of the OP's content. This time the starting infos and details will be under spoiler since from now on I'll also use the OP for the rankings / links to the previous weeks' threads.

STARTING INFOS AND DETAILS

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.

Hey, I was wondering, is there a consensus on how pre-orders work in terms of "Best selling" and "Most downloaded"? Is it cumulative or not?

Edit: Doesn't seem so.

it's a cumulative revenue for best selling just like game that's available, while most downloaded, i don't know.

small note: don't trust the rank for game that's just released (no-preorder) and a game with preorder just started (less than a week open preorder). the rank should be higher.
