I'm not sure it's so much about trust. I've been working for Brett for almost a decade and I've actually been doing the software for coming up to two years now (time frigging flies). I don't doubt he trusts me to do this stuff.
The real problem is that Brett would need to spend time building new functionality into the section of the site where we work on the charts. The stuff he does that I'm unable to do - and the reason for that - it's stuff that requires someone to literally go into the site code and tinker. I cannot do that - I know nothing about coding or website development.
For me the logical thing to do would be for him to devote a few hours or days, or whatever it would take, building those tools for me, and then he can just leave us to it and never be bothered with any of it ever again (something that'd suit him no end I imagine). That requires more work for him in the short term but nothing thereafter, but he doesn't seem to be able or willing to put that immediate work in. Which leaves us stuck with the status quo where Trunks and myself are sending him almost daily e-mails reminding him that X needs adjusting or Y needs re-setting, and then waiting... days? Months? Years? For him to actually do it. It's like pulling teeth.
Well, what is he spending his time doing if it's not VGC? Gamewise doesn't seem to be updated, either.
Not website stuff. I believe he makes his money from property nowadays. The sites run at break even point.
Are you ever going to update PS4 with the numbers Sony gave at E3?
Yes, see Trunks' comment in this thread.
And nor will it until there's an industry-wide consensus as to what generation it fits into (and if it's the start of a new one then we'll be waiting for at least one competitor to also launch so that we can introduce a meaningful new market share graph).
It's on the weekly chart, which is what matters for now.
Eh..... It would be nice to see its total in the homepage though.
It would, but it would mean making a call on whether it's current (and so competes for current gen market share) or next gen (and so we wait for a competitor to launch so that we can start a new market share graph). My view is that if we make that call right now we'll get slaughtered whichever way we go, so I'd rather just a wait and see. Maybe there won't be a consensus, maybe gens themselves will become obselete, in which case we'll need to think about how to redesign that part of the front page. In the meantime the total can be viewed in the weekly software charts.
