It will help developers determine where on the launch spectrum, from a large-scale, expensive, very visible game launch designed to achieve top downloaded chart position, to a launch that focuses entirely on campaign profitability that they should aim to achieve in a launch given the metrics they see in their game and their ultimate revenue goals.
