1UP confirms reason for GameSpot editor was fired

1UP confirms through their own source that Jeff Gerstmann was fired for his negative review of Eidos Interactive's Kane & Lynch.

According to 1UP, Gerstmann already came under fired from Sony for scoring Ratchet & Clank Future a 7.5, for which he as the (former) GameSpot editorial director was responsible for overseeing and defending.

1UP's source also points to CNET's new management under the new executive VP Stephen Colvin as the real catalyst for the firing.

Damn, what's gonna happen to EIDOS and their games? :( Their rep is so f*cked now.

not really as publishers by definition (IMO) are the money grubbing part of gaming. Devlopers get my respect not the money guys behind it.

douche bag. everybody at GaySpot should get fired and that website should be removed from the internet. 7.5 for R&C? eat sack you biased pricks

Aoron Thomas did review of R&C

It wasn't him who gave R & C Future a 7.5, it was Aaron Thomas...who I think should have been fired instead.

They are letting the wrong people review games..Arron only reviewed sports game..how da hell you goin to let him deal with a ratchet and clank game..

Its over for gamespot they lost everything..They have no trust worthy reviews because the money do it for them..

They're even shamelessly tryin to use this situation to move traffic to their website. Wow, how despicable!

MARK MY WORDS: 1UP ARE THE NEXT SITE TO GO DOWN IN FLAMES,THEIR BIASED NATURE IS STILL VISIBLE TO UNBIASED GAMERS,AND SEEING AS HOW THEY'RE ALREADY IN DEEP FINANCIAL PROBLEMS,ONLY MICROSOFT CAN COME IN AND SAVE THE ZIFF DAVIS MEDIA FROM GOING COMPLETELY BANKRUPT;MAGAZINE SALES ARE POOR AND SITE HITS ARE LOWER THAN EVER.WILL MICROSOFT STEP IN?CONSIDERING GAMESPOT IS DEAD,MAYBE.

IF MICROSOFT DON'T?I GUARANTEE YOU THIS:BY CHRISTMAS NEXT YEAR,1UP WILL BE EITHER COMPLETELY GONE,OR ALL THE CURRENT EMPLOYEES WILL ALL BE AXED.

OH WHAT A GREAT TIME TO BE A N4G AND IGN MEMBER!
