RIP 1up.com, UGO, GameSpy
Sad day for gaming news today folks. Apparently Ziff Davis’ purchase of IGN has spurred them to close down three excellent gaming news blogs. Almost as if they didn’t even stand a chance. Word on the street is that some of the staff that has been laid off will be moved in to help write for IGN. Was not expecting this. Hope the domain names don’t go to waste in a dark abyss or start to forward to the black hole that is IGN.
