Ziff Davis sells 1up, massive layoffs, EGM is done
I just heard Ziff Davis has sold the 1up network to a UGO entertainment/Hearst Corp. Apparently there are going to be massive layoffs and EGM magazine has been canceled. Check for more.

I've been getting a free subscription to EGM for years now... kinda sad in a way. I'll definitely miss the 1up podcasts though, I listened to them like every week at work over the summer lol.

Thats unfortunate, I remember how awesome it was the few occasions I purchased the magazine.
I guess its to be expected in todays climate, the majority of what the mag offered can be conveyed
for free in websites with the bonus of multimedia to.
