Goodbye, GamePro

Goodbye, GamePro

Unfortunately, one of the longest-running video game magazines is closing its doors.  As of December 5, GamePro magazine and its respective website GamePro.com will be shutting down.  The following text has been running on their website as of yesterday:

Thank you for your loyalty, support, and participation in the GamePro.com community.  At noon on December 5, 2011, the U.S. version of GamePro online will shut down as an independent site.  GamePro will become part of PCWorld.com (http://www.pcworld.com/gamepro) offering gaming news, reviews, and how-tos from the PCWorld team.  Thank you to the entire GamePro staff for their hard work and dedication.

GamePro magazine launched in 1988 and helped to establish the voice of video game culture, giving players a place to read about many of the mysteries behind the games industry.  Many talented critics and journalists have contributed to GamePro through the years, and though its death is tragic, fans should appreciate the hard work and dedication put forth to have the magazine running as long as it did.
