I don't undestand why the people are so exctited bout fantasy numbers.
Guys, do you at least know how ioi put the numbers? he just write he's estimate in this site, and stop.
Why are so extited about the estimate of one guy, that usually are so wrong?


Yep, there were several threads of IOI saying generically how he do the charts... the process is good, the precision for weekly numbers is obviously quite off, but with the continuous corrections the totals are quite close to reality.

Because people are never just asking for sales. They create a ton of threads and bog down discussion with questions we all know the answer to. That and people treat VGC like a product or service they're entitled to rather than the free website it is.

Also someone literally reported this thread because the typo's in the poll are so bad they died a little inside.

And I can see what they mean!


Will we include poor grammar in the rules? I'll start panicking.

The problem with these threads is that they don't really solve anything except make people upset. ioi updates when he updates. All this really does is spam the popular thread topics with these ones

Didn't they just update a few days ago to finish up the week ending June 27?

I don't mind. The sales numbers at this time of the year aren't even interesting and there haven't been any big game releases. Weekly, the PS4 is probably doing 100k+, X1 at 70-80k, and the Wii U at 40k.

But it IS a product and service that IOI offers. This isn't a charity website or some kind of voluntary work. This is a product that people use to get sales estimates. 

So for you, gamers aren't entitled to free to play games simply because they are free? Are people not entitled to free services like gmail or youtube simply because they're free? When google messed up with google plus, people weren't entitled to complain about those terrible changes within Youtube simply because the service was free to begin with?

As far as I know, Ioi makes money from ad revenue and his partners. This website is advertised as a videogame sales website and those sales are currently not being provided. 

People are entitled to complain about a service that is not being provided to them as advertised, free or not.
