Gamespot names new editor-in-chief

By Patrick Garratt, Monday, 28 January 2008 19:38 GMT

Ricardo Torres is to be Gamespot’s new editor-in-chief, the US site has announced, replacing Jeff Gerstmann after a torrid departure last November. Torres was previously editorial director for the site (isn’t that a step backwards?) and has done loads of awesome stuff, like being “instrumental in bringing the GameSpot audience groundbreaking live coverage of the PlayStation 3 and Wii launches on the East and West Coasts”. Seriously, he’s well experienced. Good luck to you, Ricardo.

“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.”
