Gamespot has a new editor-in-chief: Ricardo Torres will take over the position.
So why are we telling you about a personnel change within another website? Because Torres takes his new position on the heels of controversy and intrigue in the GameSpot editorial department. In case you weren't paying attention: About a month ago Gamespot's editorial director Jeff Gerstmann found himself out of a job. The rumor on the internet: Gerstmann was fired from the website after Eidos complained of a bad review of Kane & Lynch: Dead Men. Gamespot denies it.
"I'm excited to have the opportunity to help further GameSpot's position at the forefront of the industry," said Torres. "I'm eager to continue the site's tradition of excellence and I'm confident we can move forward into 2008 and set a new industry standard for how video games are covered."
