Staying Power Index:
[(previously released titles) / (total previously released titles)] * 100

The Staying Power Index defines platform software “Staying Power” as the ratio of a platform’s previously released ranking titles to all the platforms’ previously released ranking titles combined.
Simply put, it’s the power of the titles that stayed in the charts: hence Staying Power.

Super Staying Power Index:
[(past-years released titles) / (total ranking titles)] * 100

The Super Staying Power Index defines platform software “Super Staying Power” as the ratio of a platform’s past-years released ranking titles to all of the 50 charting titles combined.
Simply put, it’s the power of the titles that came out last year and even the years before for a platform. I think it’s safe to say that a title would need some super appeal to stay in the charts for so long in such a windy industry as videogames: hence Super Staying Power.

Momentum Mean:
[(total rank changes) / (number of rank changes)]

The Momentum Mean is the total number of rank changes of a platform’s ranking software divided by the number of software taken in account. These software include only the ones which stayed in the charts for two weeks or more, thus excluding brand-new titles and re-charted titles.
Simply put, it’s the speed and direction in which a platform’s software moves about the charts: Momentum Mean, just what it means.

Wii U: [(0 + -2 + +4) / 3] = MM +0.67
Nintendo 3DS: [(-3 + -4 + +2 + +4 + +2 + -6 + +1 + +13 + +10 + +7 + +7 + +4 + +7 + +2 + +6 + -22) / 16] = MM +1.88
PlayStation 4: [(-6 + -6 + -5 + +2 + -20) / 5] = MM -7.80
PlayStation 3: [(-6 + +4 + +1 + +5 + -6 + -10 + -5 + -12) / 8] = MM -3.63
PlayStation Vita: [(-4 + -13 + -5 + -11 + +1 + -6) / 6] = MM -6.33
PlayStation Portable: [(-3) / 1] = MM -3.00

1st, 3DS — MM +1.88 | last week: MM -5.29
2nd, Wii U — MM +0.67 | last week: MM +1.33
3rd, PSP — MM -3.00 | last week: MM -4.00
4th, PS3 — MM -3.63 | last week: MM -9.67

5th, PSVita — MM -6.33 | last week: MM -10.40
6th, PS4 — MM -7.80 | last week: MM -5.33

 

Momentum Index:
[(Momentum Mean) + (total brand-new titles) + (re-charted titles) – (out-charted titles)]

The Momentum Index defines platform software “Momentum” as the average momentum of a platform’s ranking software opposed to the number of brand-new releases with a bonus for each of the platform’s re-charted titles and a malus for each of its out-charted titles.
Simply put, it’s the momentum of all of a platform’s titles, all things considered: Momentum, plain and simple.

Wii U: [+0.67 + 5 + 0 – 0] = MI +5.67 | last week: [+1.33 + 14 + 0 – 1]
Nintendo 3DS: [+1.88 + 5 + 3 – 0] = MI +9.88 | last week: [-5.29 + 14 + 0 – 5]
PlayStation 4: [-7.80 + 5 + 0 – 1] = MI -3.80 | last week: [-5.33 + 14 + 0 – 1]
PlayStation 3: [-3.63 + 5 + 0 – 2] = MI -0.63 | last week: [-9.67 + 14 + 1 – 5]
PlayStation Vita: [-6.33 + 5 + 0 – 3] = MI -4.33 | last week: [-10.40 + 14 + 0 – 5]
PlayStation Portable: [-3.00 + 5 + 0 – 0] = MI +2.00 | last week: [-4.00 + 14 + 0 – 0]

1st, 3DS — MI +9.88 last week: MI +3.71
2nd, Wii U — MI +5.67 last week: MI +14.33
3rd, PSP — MI +2.00 last week: MI +10.00

6th, PSVita — MI -4.33 last week: MI -1.40

 

Super Momentum Index:
[(Momentum Index) * (Staying Power Index)]

The Super Momentum Index defines platform software “Super Momentum” as the Momentum of a platform when adjusted to its Staying Power.
Simply put, it’s how good or how bad a platform’s momentum truly is: Super Momentum, just like Super Mario.

Wii U: [+5.67 * 6.67] = SMI +37.819 | last week: [+14.33 * 8.57]
Nintendo 3DS: [+9.88 * 42.22] = SMI +417.134 | last week: [+3.71 * 40.00]
PlayStation 4: [-3.80 * 11.11] = SMI -42.218 | last week: [+7.67 * 8.57]
PlayStation 3: [-0.63 * 17.78] = SMI -11.201 | last week: [+0.33 * 20.00]
PlayStation Vita: [-4.33 * 13.33] = SMI -57.719 | last week: [-1.40 * 20.00]
