Ubisoft, Sony‘s sports game division, and Midway’s Mortal Kombat development team were all named by Electronic Gaming Monthly‘s Editor-in-Chief Dan Hsu as companies that banned the gaming magazine from covering their products after receiving negative reviews. More details await at the full article.
In light of editorial integrity and the issues surrounding it, Electronic Gaming Monthly‘s (EGM) Editor-in-Chief Dan Hsu named three major developers and their publishers who didn’t like the gaming magazine’s reviews and banned it from further coverage of other products.
Ubisoft, Sony‘s sports game division, and Midway’s Mortal Kombat development team were all named as culprits in the latest issue of EGM. EGM won’t treat the said companies and their products differently, stated Hsu. Reportedly, the three companies stopped sending game-related goods to the magazine anyway.
Over a month has passed after GameSpot’s long-time editor Jeff Gerstman was fired because of what most believe as pressure from publisher Eidos, but it seems the shockwave he left is still stirring up doubts within gamers. We can’t help but give our kudos to Dan Hsu, and here’s hoping more publications like EGM reveal what’s going on behind the glittering reviews of games consumers put their money on.
