Question is in the title. I'm wondering how they rank the Top Sellers list. There has got to be some kind of time frame that resets the list or something.
How exactly does the "Top Sellers" thing work?
The game that sells the most...makes the list. Simple really.Somehow I don't think it's that simple. I mean, shouldn't then one game that outsells every other game be on that list forever? And how is Dead Island now beating Deus Ex? Also, those games that go on sale (For ridiculously low prices) somehow manage to trump over pricier games that have been on the top for some time. That can't be right.
There are dark forces at work here.
I recall reading that is actually as simple as that. They base it on how much money it makes, and not how many units are sold over the course of a week. Whenever a game gets close to release it's always in the top spot for that week because everyone starts buying it then. Dues Ex came out a few weeks ago, so it's not selling as much this week as it did others.
