1UP has apparently been acquired by IGN.

How do you feel about this? An independent voice lost?

Always thought that 1up was one of the better sites.

Not sure where to go now for 'independent' reviews :( Suggestions?



OMG!  The IGNorance is spreading!  Run to the hills!  Run for your lives!

Other than maybe Jessica Chobot, there really is nothing there to like.



Disconnect and self destruct, one bullet a time.

1Up aren't a very good site. They've lost all the good people, they are pretentious as fuck and they offer nothing noteworthy to the medium. IGN are better than 1Up, being acquired by IGN doesn't make much sense though, don't see the point.



Bet with Conegamer and AussieGecko that the PS3 will have more exclusives in 2011 than the Wii or 360... or something.
