Ratings on the Windows Phone Marketplace

So after launching our latest app 1 Second Game on the Windows Phone Marketplace I went to have a look at how it's doing on the web based marketplace.

It was a little disappointing to see that it had 0 ratings and it had been out since the 17th July (but was only actually available to download from the 19th July) so 2 full days and 0 zero reviews.
I clicked to view the details of the app, and found that there actually was 2 reviews!? However it also said that there was only 1 review??

This is very annoying as people browsing the marketplace might be more inclined NOT to download apps that have no ratings.

Hopefully Microsoft could make it a little more consistent and a little more real time so that ratings are reflected everywhere quicker.
