    IGN sold to Ziff Davis

    IGN has been bought by j2 Global subsidiary Ziff Davis, confirming speculation that the group had acquired the company from previous owner News Corp.

    In a note sent to VG247 this afternoon, Ian Chambers, VP, International at IGN said,
    “Joining Ziff Davis’s world-class digital media portfolio further strengthens IGN and AskMen’s growing presence in international markets.

    “Alongside our local teams in the UK and Australia, we have developed a global network of expert publishing partners that deliver locally relevant content in 10 languages and over 40 countries. By combining our forces we will reach a greater audience of males 18-34 than ever before.”

    Does that mean the alleged Ziff Davis integrity is coming back?
    I am once again writing a blog, vaguely about playing games the wrong way
