< Machina updated his status:

Will and I have now taken over the weekly HW figures (though as with SW, if we want adjustments done to figures already posted we have to get Brett to do it).

Will has now posted the first set of HW figures (week ending 14th Jan).

I hope the team can take control of the database as well someday, so we can have if fixed.

Thanks for keeping the site up.

Our Switch pre-order rankings after the first full week, for those who are curious:

No. 50 - Zelda

No. 71 - Mario Kart

No. 74 - Bomberman

No. 76 - Binding of Isaac

No. 78 - 1-2-Switch

No. 79 - Super Mario Odyssey

No. 80 - Splatoon 2

No. 83 - Arms (am surprised this is so low, but expect it to pick up next week)

No. 85 - Fire Emblem

Nothing else inside the top 100.

< Kerotan posted something on Machina's wall:

The latest global update is bugged. Japanese sales not added. Not sure what else is missing.

Takes a short while for the public pages to update. It should be fine after that, but if you spot any errors still after about 30 minutes let me know again.

< Paatar posted something on Machina's wall:

Are Switch pre-orders going to be tracked before the launch of the Switch? Just noticed they weren't there in the recent one( 14th) and the event was before that date. Thanks!

Yes. I expect them to break into the top 40 next week.

Although only Zelda is doing well out of the launch titles.

Ah okay. Sweet! Didn't even occur to me. Haha. Thank you! :D

Deadpoolioo said: But those are just Vgchartz numbers. Do we have any idea what it's actually sold? A valid concern expressed in a bit of a dickish way, but I'll address it anyway, for others' benefit if not yours. The game's already been adjusted based on available data from other trackers, so I'm confident it's close to actual.Reports with sales:- The last week that there was...

What stops Trucks & headmods from migrating the userbase to a new website?

in General Discussion 1 day ago

LurkerJ said: Machina said: There are no numbers? FeelsBadMan Gun That part was poorly phrased. VGC went through prolonged periods of time in which we didn't get numbers, but the userbase stuck around anyway. What I am trying to say is; the members are mainly here because of the discussion environment created by the mods, whether they realise it or not. I appreciate what you...
