1UP has Reached Its End

Today, Ziff-Davis announced that as part of a restructuring of its new property IGN Entertainment, three of IGN's smaller secondary sites -- namely, 1UP.com, Gamespy.com, and UGO.com -- would be "winding down." As is often the case with such reorganizations, some of 1UP's staff was laid off while others will be moving over to work as contributors at IGN.com. No timeline was given for 1UP's closure or if its servers would continue to run indefinitely. (Industry)

I used to actually like 1up until I found N4G. I was so ignorant.

Goodbye good riddance. You people did more to ruin gaming than you ever helped. These guys thought their opinions were more important than the public or the games. When journos think they're rock stars and what they want is best then its time for them to play a new game called "Tale of the Unemployment Line" I can't wait for the first DLC called "The Writer No One Missed"

@camel_toad: Wow, you sure got smarter. Now you frequent a site focused entirely on click-bait articles. Enjoy your "journalism".

Wish it was Kotaku... oh well.
Merrill  +   878d ago
Soon enough, hopefully. They're the worst.
TheOneEyedHound  +   878d ago
They are next, that's why they are on a trolling spree.

To: Kotaku and 1up

Sites that troll do not get remember, good riddance.
Rhezin  +   878d ago
naw I wish it was DESTRUCTIOD. That sh!t needs to go
cyguration  +   878d ago
I'm sorry but Jim Sterling actually writes stuff in favor of consumers and the game community.

Not many big sites out there actually care about gamers. Whether you like Destructoid or not at least Sterling and crew are pro-consumer...a rarity in today's gaming media climate.
ApolloTheBoss  +   878d ago
No way, man. Destructoid is part of Rev3 Games. And Adam Sessler, the best damn gaming journalist who ever lived, works at Rev3.

Twitter is killing everything.
BrianC6234  +   878d ago
I gave up on 1Up a couple years ago. Boring site.
bobtheimpaler  +   878d ago
Good riddance. More stuff like this should happen if people continue writing tabloid level trash.

Hopefully next-gen equals better "GAMING" journalist because this-gen they were complete assholes. Never heard of the words fanboy until this-gen. And what is funny is too me that so many Xbox sites forgot they once owned an PS & Nintendo..

I don't know if they became bias because of the money. During my gaming history I have owned an SNES, Atari, Sega Genesis, Sega Saturn, Sega Dreamcast, N64, PS combo, PS2, and PS3 not including handhelds and prototypes..

I didn't call my friends names because they didn't own an certain console. I just gave them a controller and asked what console you wanted too play? Maybe this is wishful thinking but hopefully we have an more mature gen coming soon....

You people all make me SICK . People lost their jobs.
Campy da Camper  +   877d ago
Let me ask you a question: when the Aryan compound in Idaho was raided all their P.R. guys were out of business. You are saying its sad that they lost their jobs?
NoPoint  +   878d ago
Oh the irony in the comments, N4G has the worst gaming community around. Don't get me started on the content.

Given that you're part of the community, you've got very little room to talk, I'd think.

In any case, 1up is one of many "publications" that need to shape up or ship out. N4G's quality or lack thereof is irrelevant. Likewise, the condition of the community is similarly meaningless.

In my AOL Voice.

"Good-Bye"
Inception  +   878d ago
So after posting crap article 'Can PS4 restore our lost love for sony?', this site is officially going down. Well...it's sad to see people lost their job. Not even one of us want to be in their shoes right now. But it can't be help if you only making crap & flamebait articles day after day. Hopefully, the other gaming sites learnt from 1up mistakes and open their eyes that video game is about fun and making new friends. Not calling people fanboy and hatred just because they like different consoles.

well said

1up was awesome until they were bought out. Then they became a second hand forgettable gaming site... * sigh *

And in other news...7Up has never been better.
