Or...maybe they're just waiting until the PS4 and 720 are out so they can have all the stuff from the same gen on at once? Unless they didn't do that before and I just wasn't on the forum yet.

Really, though, the sales numbers themselves are more important than where they're displayed.


Correct.

I believe (though I'm not 100% certain since I wasn't around for it) that the same thing happened with 3DS numbers on the homepage before Vita was released.

I think the admins also need to let go of their pride and list WiiU sales on the frontpage. I know that some of them have such a distaste for anything non-Nintendo they refuse to play any games on 'teh HD' consoles but this is getting to a point its hurting the credibility of the site.

Or maybe they are too busy playing inferior late ports on the WiiU.

Good point but this is a Nintendo dominated place and since the last few years when Wii sales went down the toilet its become an awfully quiet place. Either ioi is trying to reduce Nintendos humiliation or trying to make the most of the community thats left since HD gamers were always made to feel unwelcome.

...I think you're being too paranoid about this.

The Sony fandom has lots of heft around here, yet I don't see evidence of them glossing over the Hindenburg disaster of the Vita's sales to appease the masses. And with the number of people who watch for even the smallest adjustments from week to week, there's no way they'd get away with that anyway.
