Amsterdam, NL, July 1st, 2022: Steam Data Suite, the analytics tool provider dedicated to Steam, expanded their platform with sales, revenue, and wishlist estimates, of unprecedented accuracy. The numbers, available for almost all games on Steam, are part of their market insight solution, aimed at understanding market trends and building business cases.
 
“After years of data collection and thanks to the growth of our platform we’ve been able to use the actuals data for over 2.000 games and historical performance-indicative data for all games on Steam to land at a predictive model that is incredibly accurate,” explains Oscar Hogervorst, CEO of Steam Data Suite.
 
As opposed to other Steam benchmarking tools that are available, Steam Data Suite relies on modern Machine learning technology to train its predictive model. Most other Steam performance estimation websites rely on the Boxleiter methodology, consisting of multiplying the number of reviews by a specific factor, or a limited sample of game ownership. Oscar Hogervorst: “Publishers need a reliable benchmarking tool to run their business and game operations. We’ve put a lot of effort into integrating this information in a way that helps them build case studies, focus their marketing proposition, and simply understand the market they are or are looking to operate in.
 
The benchmarking feature not only allows Steam Data Suite users to access sales, wishlists, and revenue statistics for any game but also reports key benchmark metrics for different genres and segments of games, strongly facilitating the marketing research process. It thereby complements the platform’s range of solutions focused on the concept of iterative optimization, which leads developers and publishers through the cycle of evaluating the gaming market as well as their own games’ performance, tweaking aspects of that performance through marketing optimization, and finally measuring the results of their optimization efforts.
