Forums - Gaming Discussion - What's causing the delays in chart updates?

From what I remember the site code is very „stiff” and old, and changes in it may cause crashes or other problems. Most charts ale based on the generation philosophy. Leaving that philosophy behind might be premature. Console manufactures are still making new consoles end not doing endless revisions. Even if there is PS4Pro2 and XBoxOneX2 there still might be PS5 and XBoxTwo.

It's also kinda hard to find the total hardware numbers. Sometimes if you click on "Weekly Hardware Numbers" it loads under the "total software" but sometimes not at all.

I'm sure more people would be official supporters if they knew their money would go toward sales data updates.

Also, dump the generation function on the main page. The lack of Switch looks bad on the site. Nobody new to the site is going to say, "Oh, they do it by generations, that's OK then." They say, "Why don't they care? Do I want to join a community that doesn't care about its main page?"

We know you guys care and bust your ass to do what you can but changes need to be made.

Here's a crappy mockup I made:

Consoles are arranged by release date, with the year added for context. Just add in relevant new hardware when it releases, and remove its predecessor.  Red = Nintendo, Blue = Sony, Green = Microsoft.

Numbers should be larger, but overall it looks very good.

The interesting thing about this chart is that the PS4 was released 2 years after the 3DS and is only 5 million units behind one of the most popular hand-helds release. PS-Vita must be envious of both PS4 and 3DS :p

You have to click on the previous week if hardware sales aren't updated.
