IGN To Be Sold To Ziff Davis’ Parent Company

Stephany Nunneley: ''News Corp. is in the process of closing a deal with Ziff Davis over the sale of IGN, according to All Things Digital.

News Corp. purchased IGN for $650 million in 2005, but sources close to the matter state the figure this time around is much lower.

J2 Global purchased Ziff Davis last year for $167 million, a deal which included sites such as PCMag.com and Geek.com.'' (Culture, IGN)
