"I have some incredibly exciting news to share with you today. UGO Entertainment, including 1UP.com, was acquired by IGN Entertainment in a deal that creates what is by far the Internet's largest network of gaming and entertainment websites. This is huge news for 1UP on a whole bunch of levels, but most importantly for us in that it unites (what we think) some of the best in gaming editorial under one umbrella. It's a really exciting time for us."
1UP Joins Forces With IGN

This is going to be interesting.

All they seem to do anymore is push the marketing campaigns put out by major game developers. I see no reason to be excited.

Agreed, there are any number of smaller scale operations with vastly more interesting takes on gaming news and reviews. I don't care about either site/network of sites now, and nothing about this merger will change that.

1up was already corporate but this takes them even lower. I always have a hard time believing gaming news when the page is splattered with ads for some **** tastic overhyped console game. Hopefully they don't start being biased like most of those sites
