GameSpot Editor Fired Over Review?

Primotech reports the firing of Jeff Gerstmann, long-time GameSpot editor, saying sources close to the situation indicate this due to his tepid review of Kane & Lynch: Dead Men for Xbox 360, pointing out Eidos had invested in a prominent advertising campaign on the site. The article points out this Penny Arcade comic offering a typically searing take on the situation, along with another indication this unconfirmed story is making the rounds. A later update on DESTRUCTOID reports the departure of GameSpot editor Tim Tracy though it's not clear if or how this may relate to the situation described above.

102. GameSpot Editor Fired Over Review? Nov 30, 2007, 19:04 osage no onna
 
I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this story. It's just insane of them to fire their best known and most respected editor.

I have no doubt he got half a dozen job offers as soon as the news broke, but still, just disgusting.

That site isn't getting a single more click from me.
