I havenâ€™t been here very long but reading some of this isnâ€™t too surprising to me. I remember being vaguely aware of this site back in 2007-09. The PS3-360 era was a real dogfight and Iâ€™m sure that generated a ton of content.
I think thatâ€™s probably why traffic fell off too. 8th gen simply wasnâ€™t interesting to talk about from a sales perspective. Nintendo was a no show until the switch, and Microsoft was a no show the whole time.
Perhaps renewed competition from MS and Nintendo will see an uptick in interest in sales discussion. I know thatâ€™s why Iâ€™m even here
Overall numbers on the site (minus forum posts) have actually improved since the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S launched. I can definitely tell that article views have gone up. Though, we aren't anywhere near the peak during the PS3-360 era.
