Every month since April of last year, I've held regular votes to see which games are the most anticipated on VGChartz. It's been fun, and I've learned a lot about this website's tendencies and tastes. However, there is one thing that continuously bothers me.
We have about two Xbox fans voting.
You see, we vote using a sort of point system, where you vote for 5 games, from 1 to 5 points each, for a total of 15 points. For example, we have 733 points so far this month, because 49 people have voted (and two of them messed up).
The Xbox One and 360 COMBINED have 30 points.
That's about 4% of the total combined.
That's less than the Vita COMBINED.
I wouldn't be so bothered, but I suspect that the Xbox community here on VGChartz isn't so small. I mean, looking at the Forum Index, it should be getting a bunch more votes every month. So consider this my special invitation to all Xbox fans.
I'd actually guess there are a lot more vita fans on the site then Xbox fans. The official vita thread gets quite the amount of attention.
Hell, I was recently accused of being an Xbox fan, and my favorite 360 game is a game that was better on the PS2!
Really it's probably even wose with casual posters and lurkers.
Look at it this way, we are primarily a gaming sales related site... Nintendo has won 3 generations, Sony has won two.
Microsoft hasn't won any... and showings so far were "In the lead for second place for a long time due to a head start" and "In second place until it was discontinued due to some legal reason or something, and maybe still beat the gamecube or fell short.... who knows."
So it's not like there has been much to build momentum to make microsoft fans come to a site like this, vs one based more on the gaming aspects of gaming.
