Daily Reaction: IGN up for Sale, PSLS Offers 2 Cents

In light of today’s news that the popular gaming media giant IGN is being sold off, the Daily Reaction crew weighs in to see what the future may hold. As the reality is that the backbone of any industry, even gaming and its media, is still a business, the ramifications that may be felt by this decision might be seen for years to come.

Good to see the Murdoch empire shrinking.

PSLS is ridiculous, IGN isnt worth that much

Those aren't PSLS' made up figures, they're official ones...

If you actually read the article, PSLS agrees with you.

Anything that takes away from Fox News is a good thing.

Kind of surprised.

Why? News Corp isn't having the best time with online.

Why doesn't News Corp auction off Fox News????

Hopefully IGN's buyer is a good company.

My money is on Viacom. They almost bought them the first time, and this time they will actually spend less to get more.

If Viacom buys them
expect a pro Microsoft IGN, just like Gametrailers. Viacom/Microst Business partners. That's almost a monopoly for media for Microsoft.

Atleast Murdoch is Money hungry, and will do anything for money, companies might be able to buy review scores, but atleast then it's an even playing field. Viacom changes that to a monopoly, fishing and eating from the same pond.

I would buy IGN if I thought it was possible to save it, but....

Murdoch's oriental wife should be in Battle Royale All Stars
