E3: Small summary and a question

E3: Small summary and a question

Wooo, that crazy E3 time is now almost over and it's with great pleasure that I'm finally able to catch up on my sleep. I know some of you guys like these numbers so you'll find a few stats about this long week inside this news. I've also got my camcorder back, so if you want to see a better resolution version of any of Shann's videos, let me know in the comments of this news.

Needless to say that this 10 days period between May 12 and 22 has seen all the previous records of this site beaten. The main server itself has quite nicely handled the load, but there first download mirror was saturated during the first few days. The problem was resolved by adding 2 new servers to the download pool.
A few numbers for this 10 days period :
- Pages : 2453963 (official
- Visits : 371751 (official
- Unique visitors : 208668 (official
- Max simultaneous visitors : 723
- Max cumulated bandwith an all download servers and bittorrent : 120 mbits
- Number of news : 130
- Number of videos : 179
- Videos size : 4.3 GB
- Number of galleries : 144
- Number of images : 1248
- Downloads : More than 400000

I'm very happy with these numbers of course :)
Hopefully I'll be able to get more interesting exclusive content in the future. We are contacting a few developers and hope we'll be able to do a few videos with them. I'm also working on a new version of, and also a new site I'll announce in a few weeks.

Well done - but please, if you are working on a new version, keep it as simple and quick as this one. It's what makes this site so different and so great. Don't fluff things up!!!!

It will just be a design more in line with Xbox360. Everything else will stay the same.

I agree with fatsausage, one of the reasons what makes this site so great is that it is straightforward, simple, transparant and unpretentious.
I really love this site, best site for xbox media: fast in a lot of ways, yet simple!

Yea, great job. You deserve it. I also agree that what makes the site so great is because it's not all fancy. I don't have to go through so much crap just to get to what I want. It's simple.
