HA! Finaly some changes! Yesterday i was yawning at the lack of changes in the top, and wondering if the new system was the reason for it. Well today we have 2 new games entering the top10, at #2 and #4 ! Also of note: both Lacrosse games are gone from the top10. Both of these games are selling for 400 MSP, i wonder if this is the reason for their sudden fall and if the new system has something to do with it. I have decided to add the price of the games to add details to the top.

Change in the way the Top download list is handled

Interesting, some changes in the way the top download list is handled on the dashboard. This could explain why in the past days there has been very little changes.

Previously games were selected and ordered based on the previous day’s sales information. This caused an illusion of the channel being frozen if sales data was delayed as well as exposing an instability in the channel due to occasional daily spikes.

To improve this experience, we have changed the time interval from daily to rolling weekly. What this means is that the top downloads channel will show games based on the previous week’s data each day.  Though it will be slightly more difficult to get on the list in the first place, the top downloads channel will be more reliable and less likely to be affected by daily delays or issues.

Updates to the Top Downloads Channel on Xbox LIVE Indie Games

Is this new way going to help brand new games get their share of the top, or will it profit the ones that have already been there for ages ??? Time will tell…
