28 RAPTR METHODOLOGY This report is based on data collected from Raptr s service, available at Raptr is the leading social network for gamers and currently automatically tracks gameplay activity for over 10 million users across console and PC. Raptr uses a proprietary formula to determine the winners of the most played games released in This formula is based on several key statistics, including total hours played in the first month, average session length in the first month, and average playtime per person in the first week. To create equal footing for comparison, all games are compared based on the same time frames after release. Based on our historical trends, firstmonth playtime data is a strong indicator of a game s long-term playtime trends. Due to data capturing restrictions on the Wii and PS3, we did not include games limited to these platforms as part of our report. 28
