The database used to be very important because all weekly software sales were registered within each game page, but now that only reported software is updated does the database still have a use?

Do you use it to track your collection or review the game in question or is it dead to you now the homebrewed sales are gone?

Since there is still shipment data for games, yes, because that’s the place where you’re going to see them. Where else would I find the sales data for games if not in a database.

Besides that every once in a while I update my collection. No Odyssey2 to add though.



For historical reasons. The GDB can compile and keep this specific history of the site alive



Just a guy who doesn't want to be bored. Also

I used to take pride in updating my collection. When the man tried to hold us down by taking away the option, I quit caring. I probably bought a thousand games since then. Too many to update. The feature is dead to me.

Basically this, but with ~85% fewer games bought since then.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
