Umm, is Ratings the same as sales? I'm pretty sure not everyone who brought the game would have rated it?

You can't rate a game on the PS Store until you've bought it so the ratings is the best way to determine the least amount content has sold.

It could be much higher but we can only say it has sold atleast 5,009 at this point.

psp2roundup1983d ago

Get that, but the line needs to be "have crossed the 5k mark with 5,009 comments from buyers and counting" or similar...

Snookies121983d ago

Yep, gotta buy it before you're able to give it a rating.

ChronoJoe1982d ago (Edited 1982d ago )

Yeah counting the ratings and suggesting their sales is not a very good idea at all. All we can say is that at least 5k people have bought it, but I'd also bet only 10-20% of people bother to rate their content.

Statements like

"As of the time of this article, Gravity Rush was the second most downloaded PS Vita game on the PS Store. The now closed Zipper Interactive’s final title, Unit 13, holds the top spot with 5,014."

Just aren't true. There's no evidence to suggest that's true, ratings don't = sales.

A horrible article, really...

Glad i read the comments before clicking the link. Tracking digital sales is impossible to my knowledge, unless the devs release the numbers themselves.

GraveLord1982d ago

Exactly.

5k is the MINIMUM, the game must have sold. It is actually much more than that.

Whoever wrote that article is extremely misninformed.

Buying before rating is one of the best ideas around. Hate it when people jump to "rate" something they haven't played.

HarvesterOSarow1981d ago

I disagree. I understand that it helps the digital community to be more fair, but I have many PSP games on UMD and PS1 games that I am unable to rate because I didn't buy Sony's digital copy. The correct way to do that is for PSN to scan Save Data or something and see if you played it, then enable the option to rate.

I've put 1000 hours in Monster Hunter and I am unable to rate them on PSN and let everyone else know that it's a 5/5!

REALgamer1982d ago

I've bought 10 Vita games from PSN but haven't rated any.

Does that mean mine aren't actual sales? >_>

snake-OO1982d ago

I bet 90% of the people who buy games off pen store, don't bother rating.

himdeel1982d ago (Edited 1982d ago )

I RARELY rate games and would include myself in the 90% but have like many PS+ members have access to over 100+ games. I've rated maybe 10 of them maybe.

So ratings in some cases on PSN aren't an exact science more an approximation of the number of people that have legitimate access to the content. However with Vita games one game per PSN ID means at least that number have purchased the game.
