Slow Console Pages Yesterday. Fixed Now.

Yesterday morning we added a new service to the console pages on our site that let you see every game available for a particular console and the 90-day average price (for an example see these NES, PS2, SNES, or Wii pages). We gave you the ability to find the current prices on ebay, amazon, or right from that page.

This change though slowed down these pages to an almost unbearable speed. It took us over two minutes to load some pages. We couldn't stand the wait when we were testing. I'm sure you were upset too.

The good news is we think the problem is fixed now. All the console pages load as fast as they did two days ago. The pages still take a little while to load (no more than 15 seconds) but then there is no waiting time for sorting or filtering the data.

Sorry for this annoyance. And Thank You for using our video game pricing site.
