VGCartz Methodology: Equipment estimates are based on a sample of retailers and trends in selected countries, which are then extrapolated to represent a wider region. This usually allows us to get numbers that end up being within 10% of the actual totals.

This data is regularly compared with official shipping data published by console manufacturers and data obtained by regional trackers with a larger market coverage than us. We then update our own estimates to bring them in line with those numbers. This can result in frequent changes over a short period of time, but we think it’s important to prioritize accuracy over consistency.

Please note that our estimates are based on through sales data (units sold to consumers). In almost all cases, the numbers published by console manufacturers are based on shipment data (sale), when a device leaves the factory and enters the supply chain for delivery, it is considered a sale. This is why there is always a difference between company numbers (sales) and VGChartz estimates (through sales), even after adjustments have been made. The only exception is when the console has been discontinued and the remaining stock has finally sold out – at which point the numbers will match.

Diablo 4 Server Slam Weekend Announced For May



Blizzard has announced a Server Slam weekend for Diablo 4, which will run from May 12-14.

This will give fans one last chance to play the RPG before it releases in early June. Any character progress made during the Server Slam will not carry over to launch.

The tournament weekend starts at 8pm UK time on May 12th and ends at 8pm UK time on May 14th. It’s available on PC, Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4, as well as couch co-op for consoles. as well as cross-play and cross-progress for all platforms.

Diablo 4 has PvP from the start, in case you didn’t know, and a lot of other endgame ideas.

Live, game director Joe Shelley called on players to “slap our servers!”.

“We need as many people as possible to log in and check out Diablo 4 and play the game because we need to test our servers before we launch,” Scheli said.

This Server Slam weekend gives players another chance to earn rewards available in previous betas. And just like the previous beta, all classes are available this weekend in Server Slam, the level cap is set to 20, you can explore the first zone, Fractured Peaks, play the prologue, and play one of the stories.

But it will also include all of the changes Blizzard has already made to Diablo 4 for launch, so expect the rebalancing of the classes the developer previously outlined. You’ll also see the legendary drop chances at launch, rather than the inflated drop chances of previous betas.

Meanwhile, World Boss Ashava will appear nine times over the course of the weekend. If you defeat Ashava at level 20, you will receive the Cry of Ashava mount trophy to use in the final game.
