UK newspaper The Guardian has today outlined its plans to continue covering games – despite the closure of its weekly Technology supplement.
Games content at the paper will now move to its daily weekday G2 supplement – from Thursday, January 7th there will be weekly print reviews in G2, as well as a top ten games chart.
The games team at The Guardian have won our Games Media Award for best newspaper coverage of games for three years running.
The final Technology Guardian was published last week, after being closed as part of a downsizing at the publisher.
Charles Arthur, the Guardian’s technology editor, said: I am thrilled to announce that that our games coverage will be continuing in G2. Our award-winning Gamesblog will also continue, and we have plans to expand our coverage in the new year to include previews.
We know that people trust our games coverage because – increasingly – more people are buying games online via our site, and we are extremely confident that our games coverage will go from strength to strength in 2010, both in print and online.”
