I get to make a pretty cool announcement today. Thanks to @TruckOSaurus we've got new front page hardware charts!
It's the final piece of the front page puzzle and means that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series are finally displayed in the charts! Of course the Switch's huge head-start makes the percentages a bit amusing at present, but it'll be interesting to watch them change over time.
Here's what you should be seeing at the top left of the front page (colours will vary slightly, depending on the site theme you use - I use the blue one):
There are also a bunch of new charts, including platform history charts for Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony. These are all viewable using the drop-down menu underneath the charts:
We've changed the labels slightly, removing the word 'gen', and dividing modern platforms into Legacy and Current. This has allowed us to continue to display market shares (which is a pretty interesting stat to follow, so I didn't want it removed). For Switch you can view its market share in relation to PS5 & XS, or in relation to PS4 & XO - whichever you prefer:
The WiiU was a figment of your imagination.
I should also say the platform labels are currently placeholders - we're hoping to replace them with nicer images at some point. @Raven is currently helping out with that.
Finally, once again a big thank you to Trucks. We wouldn't have been able to have these new charts without him doing this in his spare time.Last edited by Machina - on 04 May 2021
