When are we getting updates on software sales numbers? Last update I'm seeing is from December.

I've noticed their work, most definitely. Very grateful for you guys and all the work you do.

That said, I just tried to check the staff page to see who our other writers are and found I couldn't load the page. What's up with that? It loads Brett Walton followed by a bunch of gibberish.

This has been fixed...

Question about Latest Shipment Updates; When I click on "All" is there a way it can take me to a longer list of updates? Or should I just use the Game Database?

I'll have to think on this one...

That doesn't answer my question. I still don't know when we'll see updated software sales charts all it says is they're doing it differently now.

The changes

From 2019 onwards (chart time, not real time; so roughly 6-7 weeks from now) we will be shifting away from tracking physical retail software sales to reporting on and archiving official software shipment data. We will also give official regional sales charts greater coverage going forwards, and also intend to publish some new revenue-based charts, rather than our own estimated charts. Hardware tracking will remain as it is at present – no changes there.

It's all explained within the two threads as to what and why we are changing - @Machina can give you more details if you like...

The answer to the question is never - we won't be making any more software estimates.

From now on we're only reporting official charts (the subject of this thread) and official shipment data (which can be viewed on the front page under the Latest Shipment Updates section and in the GameDB).

Good idea; will bring this up with Talon.
