    Well done VG…

    “With our relaunch imminent”

    Pat please don’t ruin the site like Kotaku did a few years back! All that’s needed are some better commenting features imo. Why fix it if it ain’t broke and all that eh?!

    Sorry which America are you guys referring to? Northern or Southern? America (N & S) is a continent as far as I remember not a country but heeey it might mean that I lack education or something :P

    I Gotta admit
    you guys are great
    but sometimes you make tiny mistakes in your news
    then update it and wont mention it :D

    @12 I guess it comes with being a breaking news site, we could maybe do better in this regard. The news moves so fast at times and there’s always only one person reporting on it at any given time.

    I’m glad you notice that we do fix them though :D

    Thanks for reading.

    @11 Hey I know it was used just in an intuitive and convenient way (that many are not aware of) to say USA. Where did you call (imply) it a country? Well how about where you say: “UK (country -), America, Australia (country and a continent:P) and France (country).

    Sorry I don’t want to be fussy fu*ker it’s just I like VG247 for being mature about some things and I like how things are being formulated here in general but let’s not teach others ignorance :) you have now surpassed 7,559,618 page views believe it or not you are an opinion making medium.

    Best game site around. Constant updates, great reviews (with no score), and awesome staff. Great job, and well-earned success for years to come!

    The first good thing that has come out of next-gen. After wave crappy first party titles (Sony) and micro-transactions (MS), it’s nice to see they helped a good cause.

    Vg247 is awesome and it is great to see its audience increase.

    Well done, VG247 and all who sail in her.

    Who would have thought something like a platform launch would have drummed up some site visits?!

    The site served 7,559,618 page views in the same month.

    November, as I recall, had some very busy and determined posters vandalising the site at the weekends. 10% of the figure could be attributed to that one, special, poster.
    Oh, by the way, what is the password to ?

    great job, ladies and gentlemen.
    i’m wondering, i use noscript and block googleanalytics (as well as all the other non-essential scripts). do you still get ‘hits’ when i visit? does that show up in your ‘metrics’?
