IGN shuts down Gamespy and 1UP

DeathspankDeathspank Memphis, TNPosts: 137Member Common

Due to financial reasons, IGN has shut down both Gamespy and 1UP.

 

Personally, I will miss gamespy as it was one of the better gaming news sites and I liked it more than IGN. Wish all the people who were afftected by this all the very best and hope they find jobs soon.

    it sucks when things shut down and people lose jobs. At least gamespy wont be a requirement to play some online games anymore. I never felt the need to play them if they had GS

    I don't have much contact with IGN other than digging up old video reviews from the web.

     

    Still, it's unfortunate to see them shutting divisions.  Judging from comments, they'll be missed.

    I'm wondering how long they'll keep the VN sites running before shutting those down.

    I knew something was wrong when I noticed Gamespy didn't put up new articles.

    Scratch one from my daily routine :(.

    Felt the same about GS.

    If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

    My favourite games review website of all time was Games Domain: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Games_Domain

     

    It was active from March 1994.

     

    All the games reviews were beautifully written by keen gamers. It was a pleasure to read.

     

    Since then, it's shut down and nothing has come close.

     

    Those were the days.

    I miss Nintendo Power, the show and magazine.
