So if i understand this correctly :
Hardware weekly stays
Software weekly will be gone
Software sales will only be visible on the game page itself ( based on shipping reports amd revenue reports etc etc )

Yes.
Yes. Replaced by reporting official charts.
Not quite. There will be a new box on the front page for newly-uploaded shipment totals.

Great work guys!



Times change and, with the rise of digital sales on consoles, it makes sense to move with the times.

It's a bit sad but, at the end of the day, it's better for all to have reliable numbers.



Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

Steam / Live / NNID : jonxiquet    Add me if you want, but I'm a single player gamer.

It is a little sad because it feels like the end of an era, but I'm glad the staff is working hard to make the most of this transition.

It was a needed change, though. Our figures have been outdated for some time, and with digital becoming a big deal, our current system is no longer going to work.

Interesting stuff. Regarding the extra 6 months of silver I get: That's pretty sweet. I was kinda looking forward to upgrading to gold when my year was up in Feb though! It's a net gain tho, and I can buy one small hq pizza with the savings.

Good decision. Excited to see this implemented.



A changing site for a changing market....
Best of luck in 2019!



This is actually kind of sad.Its completely understandable and probably the best course of action to take, but its still sad that VGC dosent have enough sources to keep having software estimations.

Keep up the good work guys!
