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.

"Here's why reviews exist. You go to a store. You look at a shelf of games....You were interested in Kane & Lynch. You remember that rave review GameSpot gave; awarding it 9.0. So you buy it. You play it. You think it sucks monkey balls. Now you're pissed and out $60 bucks!"

Na. You believe all the reviews you better like the taste of monkey balls.
