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 xiti.com)
- Visits : 371751 (official xiti.com)
- Unique visitors : 208668 (official xiti.com)
- 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 xboxyde.com, 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!
Commented on 2005-05-25 18:41:02
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.

What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks yeah agreed. Nothing like getting that Soldier stunt driver skin instead of an event specific one D: (49 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And a bunch of dances and voice lines. (50 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I got one drop in the last event, one non-event legendary, and I unlocked another two with credits. (50 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The last event had a ton of skins but it seemed extra bad because they were all legendary. That didn't help. (51 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Another annoyance is getting that rare legendary during an event and having it not be an event skin. (51 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks it was really at it's worse during the last event too. They released more random collectibles so the drop rate was even more obscure. The dupe money has always been really shit though (51 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea.. and I think dupes made it a lot more annoying too. (52 minutes ago)
