IGN eclipses rivals in net ratings

According to traffic figures from Media Metrix/ComScore sent out by IGN today, the firm trounced rivals including CVG, GamesRadar and Eurogamer in the month.

The number is a new record for IGN, which only launched fully localised UK versions of its major gaming channels at the beginning of January.

Average time spent on the site has also shot up.

According to the statistics, Gamespot attracted 2.7 million unique visitors in the month, followed by Gamesradar with 997,000 and Eurogamer with 225,000.
