Game Over for Gamecenter?
10:20 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

Gamecenter posted a note on its website informing readers that they would be shutting down operations at the end of this week. This is the latest move by ZD/CNET to cut costs and streamline operations in order to compensate for decreasing revenues and the recent slowdown of the Internet economy. Earlier this month, the Gamecenter Alliance (which IMG was a member of) was dissolved, presumably for the same reasons. Here is the notice in it's entirety:

Gamecenter is closing shop at the end of this week, wrapping up a fun-filled, four-and-a-half-year run. We're still working on a couple of feature stories to be published by week's end, so don't delete your bookmark just yet.
GameSpot, which is also owned by ZD/CNET, will become the primary portal for the network. Although several gaming networks have had to downsize or even cease operations, IMG is still going strong. You can rest assured that we will be bringing you the best gaming-related coverage for many years to come.
