UGO buying out 1UP, Disney buying out EA, and Gears of War 3 set to buy Cliff a new country in today's bought-out edition, brought to you by Pepsi.
Print mags are a thing of the past. They'll all close up shop soon.
When you can carry a screen the size of magazine page rolled up in your pocket. Until then PSTOM & GI don't need to worry about losing my subscription.
How i would love to see EA bought over by Disney, at least they might make some decent games lol
Pure was pretty decent... Disney makes a lot of tween games, but that is their buisness model.
Decent? Pure is one of the most underrated games of this gen so far. Didn't get nearly the love it deserved.
@2.2 I hate endorsing games I haven't played the final build for, but I love the demo from E3. So until I try the real one, it's just pretty decent lol..
Magazines especially with the internet have to find a way to reinvent themselves or it's the way of the dinosaur. We're already seeing EGM dying but EGM is 1up anyway.
I can't see why you really would want to pay for things you can get for free online.
Mags don't need to reinvent themselves, they just need to realize that websites can be just as profitable and give up on print. If they really insist on staying in business, they should do reviews, and then strictly editorial that comments about the gaming culture and the extremely hardcore side. EGM is going horribly wrong when they try to appeal to the common man. They need seriously hardcore content. Make it so good that you can't be a hardcore gamer without it.
Good stuff, keep it up :)
Well, I knew Gears 3 was inevitable, but in 2010? That seems a little too soon for it to actually, you know, improve upon the last one. =/
Gears 2 did improve upon the sequel in a lot of meaningful ways, and I'm sure Gears 3 will do the same. I'd rather have a trilogy span over a single console cycle anyways...
I thought it seemed too soon too but the original Gears launched in Nov 2006 and now Gears 2 came in Nov 2008 so maybe 2 years is just their normal development cycle?
If EA gets bought out by Disney, than say goodbye to M rated games, and hello to Hannah Montana Party Bash
That's not necessarily true. They might slap the Disney name on the ones geared to a general or child audience, but they would still make more adult oriented content. After all, Disney owns Touchstone Pictures, Hollywood Pictures, Dimension Films, the ABC Network, ESPN, Lifetime, the FX network (taken over from Fox), and more that I can't remember right now. Disney is more than Hannah Montana and Mickey Mouse now.
@7.1 Bubbles for actually thinking!
no ms better buy ea come on ms imagine madden only360 system seller right their baby
if you think madden is a system seller then um wow is all i can say
EGM has morphed well into 1UP, they either need to tie the two together somehow or just give up on the print. GI is such a better mag than EGM nowadays.
When EGM dies so goes a small part of my childhood... Please god TAKE GAME INFORMER INSTEAD!!!
