The PC charts use data supplied by leading PC games publishers including Disney, Electronic Arts, NCsoft, Sega, Square Enix, Take Two, Ubisoft and Warner Bros.

UKIE is looking for more games publishers and developers to sign up to the charts by providing their data.

Showing title ranking by units and revenue, the charts will initially be released monthly and later weekly.

UKIE CEO Jo Twist said: "As an industry, we need to measure the true size of the digital games market and that's why we have invested in this system for the industry to own. Companies that are involved are already getting a competitive advantage, using the data to make informed and fact based commercial decisions."
