Go somewhere else if you want recent numbers.

God. It sucks bad that no one gives official or estimates nowadays. Thank you Media Create and Famitsu.

Well, there is always Sony.  They will continue to publish data because its good PR for them.  And with AMD we will at least know the absolute max Xbox One sold on a yearly basis.

Honestly though if the charts aren't going to be updated anymore ever again ioi or somebody else just needs to come out and say it already. The site is already 2+ months behind, and it won't be long before it's 3 or 4 months behind.

Stop leading people on with the false assumption that things will return to normal if they actually aren't going to. The last message that was said about the whole charts situation was that it would "return to normal soon" or something like that (can't find the thread or exact quote currently), and that at least like 2 months ago by now, nothing went back to normal.

I mean holy shit, it doesn't take any effort to say something about the situation rather than just ignore it. I don't know what the reason for the charts being behind so badly is but don't just leave people wondering.

Only Brett (ioi) can update the charts. While I write the sales articles, I don't have access to updating the figures.


Will,

Even though you don't have access to updating the figures, do you have access to those figures? 


There are no figures to have access to. VGChartz gets figures from a handful of retailers and there is an algorithm used to extrapolate for the full market. That is as much as I know. I do help make sure the retailers databases and VGChartz match, as well as updating release dates.

VGChartz shouldn't continue with this scam!
ioi should respect us users and give us new numbers, he is treating the users and this site like shit tbh.
We should do something against this!!!


But the thing is the guy makes them up. 

There are so many wrong figures on this site. 

So not sure why users exactly want an update on made up numbers.

I have written blogs about it and VGChartz keeps locking them!

Also, if ioi won't do his job, shouldn't he be fired and replaced?


Brett (ioi) owns the website. I've asked him before about having me update the figures. No word on that yet.

I must be the only one here that hate getting new numbers, I rather read those 20 new threads about the NX and splatoon every day



Bet reminder: I bet with Tboned51 that Splatoon won't reach the 1 million shipped mark by the end of 2015. I win if he loses and I lose if I lost.

This website isn't about sales data anymore. Imagine paying thousands of dollars for VGChartz Pro and not to receive any actual data for months...


Ouch i didnt think of that i would be super heated if that was the case.



You aren't the only one...



Predictions: PS4: 110m, XB1: 65m, Wii U: 15m, 3DS: 70m, PSV: 15m

Curl - 6 was right about Zelda U never being a wii u exclusive, I should have never bet against him :p  

VGC staff is trying to solve the problem, but they haven't been able yet to figure out where to plug the USB key to update ioi.



Stwike him, Centuwion. Stwike him vewy wuffly! (Pontius Pilate, "Life of Brian")

A fart without stink is like a sky without stars.

TGS, Third Grade Shooter: brand new genre invented by Kevin Butler exclusively for Natal WiiToo Kinect. PEW! PEW-PEW-PEW!
