When will mods get paid if ever?
What games have you released through your other company?
Do you plan on making games for consoles since MS and Sony have made it easier for Indies?

Question for mods:

Why do you volunteer to graft for free? I get it if it's humanitarian work, but this is far from it.

Why do you put up with the grief when it comes to lack of numbers etc? What's in it for you?

Here's a few questions for ya, Brett.

1. What's been keeping you busy enough to get you so far behind with the numbers? I can understand if you don't want to answer this because the answer could be too personal for you to answer but I figured I would ask it because some of us would like to know.

2. What are features do you plan on adding to the site? 

3. Would you be willing to hold contests and give prizes (optional) in the forum? If people guess correctly, they get a prize type of thing. I think it would be fun and since this is a numbers site, it woud fit along with the theme.. One of the other users did a thread like that not that long ago (Bell_Cranel). 

  1. Life, lack of broadband and other work commitments.
  2. We have two new developers on board so there will be a host of new features coming to the site this year
  3. Potentially - speak to one of the mods about it.

So he did appeared, my question is answered then, also new badges, cool.
Even a "schedule" for regular updates, nice.

Nice to see you back Brett!
My question is if you could take a look at this:

Wii U is overtracked in 2014 and PS Vita undertracked in 2014
3.5M shipments of PS Vita and PSP (PSP got discontinued early in 2014 in USA and later in Europe and Japan) = VGChartz says that both sold 2.8M. 3.34M shipments of Wii U in 2014 = VGCharz says that Wii U sold 3.65M.

Another question: Do you count PS TV sales with PS Vita sales? There were a lot big deals, bundles etc. in the last months for PS TV but VGChartz wasn't showing a significant boost for PS Vita.

I just want to say thank you to ioi and his team. You have nearly caught up with the charts now so that's fantastic, I was worried a few months ago that this site was closing down but now I'm optimistic for the future of this site.

I've informed Brett of this thread as promised, from here we'll have to see if he decides to drop by.

Thank you for hooking this up

Ok guys, what do you think of the answers?

I wished more of you jumped on board, thread could of been loads better.

It's nice to just get a response to be honest :-p


Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.
