TheFeed is following the story of former Gamespot editorial director Jeff Gerstmann closely: Not only is it the most recent-flare-up in the timeless war between advertising and editorial in media, it's also a hell of a soap opera. We're just glad we're not involved, because everyone in the story is in a hard place.
Gerstmann can't tell his story because he undoubtedly signed an agreement to that effect. Eidos may have nothing to do with the whole thing, but their game will suffer the blowback, and employees of gamespot have to decide how to react to the situation and/or keep their jobs.
This afternoon's rumor, courtesy of Kotaku, is that gamespot may soon see a mass resignation. Citing a source who would rather not be named, Kotaku reports that gamespot's editorial staff is demoralized, and recognizes that the site's crediblitly is "in ruins."
Also interestingly, the unnamed source says the firing was not over the Kane and Lynch review, but rather had to do with a conflict between Gerstmann and Vice President of games Josh Larson.
