I now have respect for IGN... Took them long enough to get it.

Walter_Official2981d ago (Edited 2980d ago )

Its a good thing they did, but its only because GT has a large fan-base. Which IGN wants.

Edit: @One-Shot Yeah but they will always look for more ways to expand and get more people watching them over Gamespot.

One-Shot2981d ago

Pretty sure they have that already.

SolidStoner2981d ago (Edited 2981d ago )

I was watching sometimes Game trailers... for me gamespot and IGN are to immature and reviewers dont know how to play games there (like they really are noobs, watch any sim racing review.. like done with a controller without a wheel).

Best for gamers to watch uncommercialized private youtube videos like Angry Joe show, inside sim racing etc... they are 4 times longer, played by gamers for gamers!

IGN is like commercial full with childish opinions... thanks for saving GT trailers anyway!

Mr Pumblechook2981d ago

I will give it a go, as long as they don't bring over that complete door knob, Max Scoville from PlayStation Beyond, to completely ruin it with his fake persona and BS knowledge of gaming.

nX2981d ago

I think IGN just wanted their video player.
There's no way anyone ever liked the abomination IGN is using.

Without Bosman and crew this means very little if anything at all.

P_Bomb2981d ago (Edited 2981d ago )

Interesting, but GT's competition buying the name and video library isnt quite the revival I think most fans were hoping for. It's like when WWF bought WCW. Wound up being WCW in-name-only. They buried it, creatively.

Most of those GT guys reformed as EasyAllies I believe. Need them back to make it truly mean something. Not much faith in an IGN "raw/smackdown" brand extension. In the end it's still IGN.

NukaCola2981d ago

You have respect for IGN, an unethical corrupt company of scumbags making a business deal on the downfall of another to get more users to make profit for themselves???

One-Shot2981d ago

Um how is any of that what you mentioned?

Stereotypical_gamer2981d ago

Why would you give them respect just for buying something that someone else created? IGN will ruin gt just like they did there own site. It's just a name now.

Ign influenced reviews? No thanks

demonddel2981d ago

It gave uncharted a 9 does that count for anything or a 10 from them would change ur mind about them

ginsunuva2980d ago

IGN has been shitty way before UC4.

One-Shot2981d ago

What? GT isn't even doing reviews anymore.

Relientk772981d ago

This is cool. I've always liked GameTrailers

Stereotypical_gamer2981d ago

You do understand that they just bought the name right?

ApolloTheBoss2981d ago

Without Mike this news is meaningless.

Good for them. I wish them all the best of luck and every success for the future.

I shall be tuning in to their shows with great enthusiasm :)

SocialShy3039d ago

They always had some great stuff and I think it's safe to say that when GameTrailers shut down that everyone felt it. Won't be shocked to see bigger stuff from them as their goals are being reached quickly.

nix3038d ago (Edited 3038d ago )

one reason i hated Game Trailers last gen was because of their huge bias towards 360. Switched footages, zooming on the grass blades to make PS3 games look inferior was what made me stop going there. Otherwise, i used to go there for my game trailer dosages. and of course, YouTube also happened.

Having said that, i wish them all the best.

SocialShy3039d ago (Edited 3039d ago )

Glad to see the news is spreading.
