IGN.com has been recently reported to be merging with UGO.com via a NewsCorp and Hearst Corporation departure. In the wake of this news, Reviews On Q has uncovered multiple job listings for the games journalism leader.
IGN is only hated here on n4ps3(g) Everywhere else it is the premiere source for gaming news along with GameSpot among others.
I think that my biggest issue with IGN.com right now is that their news for games, movies and comic books will always run up the same feed. When I'm on the lookout for gaming news I'm not looking for a Smallville episode review.
Agree awiseman And I am exclusive PS3 guy. but whats obvious is obvious. It's funny that these 12 yo call IGNorance, when they are the ignorant ones. lol
You should probably reel back on the flaming. As I said before, you can't discriminate against a group based on the actions of a few.
Correction, awiseman. It's hated here and on IGN.com :p Wish more companies would get on board with telecommuting, though. Especially for many of the jobs that people want done on gaming Web sites.
I know IGN is the big guy in the industry, but my experience with them is that they are really community focused and really friendly people that work there.
If you're talking about the main IGN site (IGN.com), then you are absolutely correct. They are very well taken care of as well when it comes to events. That doesn't include some of their subdomains, such as the Vault Network -- http://vault.ign.com/ -- which is run mostly by a mixture of low-monthly paid employees and volunteers from around the country. I used to be one of those Vault Network guys and the difference between us and the core IGN group at E3 was very noticeable, but we were still treated pretty well overall.
