GameSpot Staff Speaks Out

GameSpot May See Mass Resignations Over Dismissal on Kotaku hears from a GameSpot employee whose identity is being withheld as he discusses allegations that the departure of editor Jeff Gerstmann was over a negative review (story). The story states that "mass resignations" may yet take place in the site's disheartened editorial staff as the source says "our credibility is in ruins." The story offers speculation about friction between Gerstmann and a new boss and possible issues with his work and goes on to verify the credibility of this post on ValleyWag based on postings reputedly from a GameSpot staffer discussing the way reviews are vetted at the site and describing the pressure their advertising department places on their editorial process.

Gnet : We have a strict barrier between our ad department and our editorial department. Well, actually, you know this is all bullshit, but you can't really prove it!

Staff : Fuck you, we're quitting.

Gnet : Goddammit.

Byebye Gamespot. When you inevitably die, I'll take 3 seconds out of my busy schedule and remember the day when you were a really good game site, and offered good, unbiased reviews. Then I'll laugh heartily at your demise.
