Some sort of Myspace or Facebook for gamers?

It doesn't actually say that the forum will be getting its own site.

Seems odd to have all that stuff as a separate entity. Seems more logical to have everything integrated with the main site, like all the extra stuff they do at IGN.

Hope EG doesn't turn into IGN Europe.

'Eurogamers' has been touted for ages now, and it's up for beta testing in the next week or so. That link has been up for quite a while.

As for what's in it? Dunno. Looking forward to it though.

I deliberately spelled it 'rite' so that it was obvious that my comment was tongue in cheek. :)

Raups tried something very similar around 1998ish with The Online Gamers Association. It was basically a community site, with user .plans (or er, 'blogs' /shudder) and some games news etc

It was a good idea back then, as there wasnt anything like it around, but it didnt really take off, unfortunatly.

I for one welcome our new EGmyspacebook.blog.com

Ah well it might be ace.

Its an interesting idea if it allows you to do things like search for users by game. For instance, I buy GRAW2 and want to see which forumites have it, so I can search, find their gamertag and away I go.

Its also a potential marketing goldmine.

Yes, this is the bit that makes the most sense.

Which makes it sound something more useful to EG and selling advertising and user details than it does to the actual users.

I think the first part of that is going to be "nicked" for here.

Top notch idea I reckon.
