Regular visitors might have noticed some changes to the console pages on VGPC over the last month. The ones with all the games and prices listed for NES, Wii, Xbox 360, etc. We've made the pages load faster, a lot faster.
Some Load Times: Then & Now
PS1 price list: Then - 26 seconds to load. Now - loads in 4.8 seconds.
SNES price list: Then - 14 seconds. Now - 2.8 seconds.
Dreamcast price list: Then - 9 seconds. Now - 1.6 seconds.
Playstation 2: Then - 31 seconds. Now - 6.4 seconds.
We made these changes because we were getting frustrated ourselves when we used the price lists and it took so long to load. If we're getting impatient with our own site, other users must feel the same way. Now you can find prices for all your games and still have time to play them too.
You can still sort and filter the data the way you could before. Just click the "sortable and filterable" link or one of the table headings.
