Gamespot has released an official Q & A about the recent firing of long time editor Jeff Gerstmann. The article is in response to allegations that Gerstmann was fired due to advertisement pressure. According to the article, Gerstmann was fired following an “internal review process by the managerial team.” The whole thing screams “Please don’t go, we don’t suck.”
Interestingly, tomorrow Gamespot will be holding a tribute to Gerstmann. Sure, they fired him, but they still love the guy. I think if I was Gerstmann I would be pissed off that they are trying to make themselves look like the good guys.
