M Science Launches M Data Viz Platform for Video Game Industry Data

Video Game data first to be featured in interactive client offering, followed by all other M Data products

M Science, the leader and pioneer in data driven research and analytics, today announced the launch of M Data Viz, a proprietary platform allowing clients to visualize, interact with and perform customized analysis on the firm’s M Data offerings.

M Data Viz will initially host video game data through four primary dashboards consisting of industry level, full-game download, digital live services and mobile data for more than 200 individual titles and multiple publishers.

As part of the launch, M Science’s flagship video game product is now providing daily access to data with only a four-day lag as well as continued build out of additional merchants and expansion of publishers and titles.

“The launch of M Data Viz is the next step in supporting our long-standing mission to deliver near real-time actionable data and analysis for our clients,” said Michael V. Marrale, M Science CEO. “We are unseating traditional physical store focused providers and representing the next generation of data in the video game space and beyond.”

The platform’s functionality provides an in-depth, granular level of data on the video game industry and maximum visibility into bookings, paying players and pricing trends across various platforms and titles. Additionally, the platform can segment digital live services and full-game downloads respectively for all major publishers.

The full-scale visualization tool will be the foundation for all of M Science’s product deliveries, including the M Data Enhanced suite launching later in 2018.

“Our video game research and data serve as an excellent example of how M Science is pushing the frontier in its application of alternative data to provide near real-time insight,” said Corey Barrett, M Science Senior Media and Video Games Analyst. “M Data Viz is perfectly adapted to enable the move to a near real-time daily data feed, which delivers the full potential of our video game data to clients.“
