So, I was wondering, do the numbers of PS3 and 360 get updated anymore on the front page? I was checking the numbers for fun and made some calculations using the Hardware Year-to-Year tool plus some other sources after a conversation with friends and I kind of reached a point where some adjustments should be made, although my reasoning might (and probably be) flawed as I'm no economics boy or anything. I was thinking of making a thread, but I am unsure anyone cares about 360 and PS3 numbers at this point. Might as well ask you directly about this I guess. xD

Bit of a complicated answer.

Will (trunkswd) now handles the weekly hardware, and therefore if there's an ongoing over/undertrack then he can act on it.

However, neither he nor I can adjusted the numbers that have already been posted. This means that past over/undertracks cannot be corrected by us. Brett obviously can make these adjustments, however I find there's little point in asking him to adjust older HW or SW - he simply doesn't do it no matter how many times we ask him to. Even getting adjustments to recent SW releases pushed through once a month is a challenge.

Oh, well, this is in regards of a past overtracking (circa 2013/2014), so little point in it now, then.
Well, there was no harm in asking! Thanks for the fast reply.

I'm sorry if it seems that I'm being too inactive with the position. I'm trying to fullfill a quota per month, but there's been certain things (like uni) depriving me from properly sitting down, sort out how I want to write things and do it.

No worries, there's no quota as far as I'm concerned. So long as each writer contributes an occasional piece that's fine by me.

The story of 3 switch third-party games.

in Nintendo Discussion 21 hours ago

Ka-pi96 said: I still think it's just the "new platform so charge extra for games" thing that afflicts every new console launch. I'm expecting Switch games to be priced normally again by the end of the year. That's my thinking too. Sucks for Switch owners but I can't blame third parties from trying this on - they want to squeeze as much as they can out of early adopters....
