It's still global weekly chart for the 1st , when you open it, though!

Oooh, promising news. Brett's gonna teach Will and myself to do the HW.

Brett will still have to sign off on the final figures but this should really speed things up; we'll hopefully move from an update once a month or two (if we're lucky!) to once a fortnight, if not more frequently than that.

Machina can I make a thread about these surprising and outstanding news or you will make one on your own, to publicize the developments with an official way?

I'll wait until I've actually done a week's worth of HW before I go too public, just in case Brett doesn't follow through very quickly.

will you* Ok boss!
I'm so excited! Finally, consistent hardware sales tracking!

To be honest, I was expecting ioi to pass you hardware sales tracking too someday but not so soon...

Ioi is the site owner, hence he surely wants his site doing well!
Hardware sales are the attraction of vgc, visitors or even members could lose their interest in the site with such an inconsistent update policy!
So, ioi returns with the best solution like he did with software sales, YOU!

Where is your compatriot? It's time for that two months update, machy...

I haven't a clue; he hasn't responded to my emails for a while now! Very frustrating :@

I'm noticing how popular all the sales articles are becoming (correct me if I'm wrong; it seems like all articles have received a boost in views, but sales articles have benefited the most). Just curious - is there a specific website/forum etc that VGC articles get regularly shared to, or are there other gaming sites writing articles based on our numbers?

Not as far as I'm aware. They tend to do pretty well on N4G where none of our other articles do, though that only counts for a minority of the hits they get.

Nogamez said: Conina said: This. It goes with the expectation that all competitors launch their products very close to another, that the strategies are similar and that the successors are launched within 5 - 6 years, no matter if the product is successful or not.  P.S.: What annoys me is when thread creators are don't know even the basics (f.e. what console generation we are...

Yeah not sure where that chart came from. I didn't upload it! Can't remove it myself, have to wait for Brett to come online and do it. Needless to say that is NOT the actual 8th October chart xD...

That's a shame. Back when Big Brother used to be quite popular he was on the Celeb version and he was a really great character; consistently witty and intelligent. In many ways he reminds me of Marilyn Manson, but like an 80s gay pop forerunner to him. He had a pretty outlandish persona and quirky sense of fashion and style but underneath the bravado was a quite introverted and considered...
