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.
I met Jennifer Batten today. She signed my guitar. Me so happy. Amazing guitar player. (13 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: larger scale and deeper vehicle gameplay would be a pretty big change (39 minutes ago)
one coming to mind right now. But I'm sure there's others I'm just not recalling at the moment. (44 minutes ago)
Though in all honesty, I don't believe Ubisoft will do it, and if they do, it won't be anytime soon. If I'm not mistaken, there's not many FPS open world games. Homefront: The Revolution is the only (44 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: I want a different enough style of gameplay, in hopes of a different enough game experience. Far Cry: Primal burned me out, it was exotic, but at one point I just saw a poorer FC3 and 4. (46 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: I think you'll get more fantasy Far Cry.. which seems to be what you want.. but I doubt they'll be called "5" or "6" (52 minutes ago)
I hope they get that right. I don't expect Battlefield-quality flight models but it would be nice. (58 minutes ago)
