They gotta make some money somewhere... Gamespot is definitely not a cheap site to run.

Don't blame them. I'd love to see you do something different if you were in the shoes of the guys running the site.

Maintaining websites is becoming an expensive thing to do.  The "dot.com" phenomenon has bursts its bubble and it's one continuous slide.

Well, if you don't like it, go about your business and look somewhere else. Have you ever bothered clicking on their ads, or maybe regularly buy Computer Gaming World magazine up to now? If not, well, that means you didn't support Gamespot well enough.[br

Free pa naman yung karamihan ng articles nang isang linggo. Pagkalipas ng 7 araw doon lang magiging 'locked" at mabubuksan lang kung nag-subscribe ka. Yung ibang articles at features free talaga. OK pa rin Gamespot.   =)
