As part of some restructuring within the Giga network, this blog is going on indefinite hiatus. Fear not, however, because the GigaGamez team will continue covering the business of games in the broadband era. In the next week or two, look to GigaOM for that coverage, along with the usual wealth of tech industry insights and reportage from Om and crew.
Meantime, here’s a selected hit list of favorite features and popular posts from GigaGamez’s first four months of operation. In subsequent months, we’ll hopefully return the site to live operation. For now, however, look for us on GigaOM.
