IGN makes content page update

Wednesday, 25th June 2008 10:09 GMT By Patrick Garratt

As you can see here, IGN’s had a bit of a redesign. The new stuff looks to be mainly functional updates to aid the display of data and content.

From the site:

The new game information pages have been redesigned to highlight the latest content posted, as well as to more prominently feature videos and community applications.

Some of the goals of the redesign were to:

  • Provide timely and relevant content to users based on a game’s lifecycle. The new pages emphasize media and the most recent articles before a game is released, and emphasize ratings, reviews, and game help after the game is released.
  • Provide more in-depth content and detail about a game to users. The pages now feature an “About Game” box which gives a brief summary of the game as well as displays information about game characters, game credits, features, specifications, and the other editions which may be available.
  • Provide easier access to our user toolsets. The new game profile pages feature reader reviews, Wikis, quote and trivia submissions, blogs, message boards, and other related applications higher on the page so they’re easier to find and use.

Take a look.

    Been a long time since they had a spruce up. I don’t envy them trying to make sense of all that stuff, to be honest.

    Ugh, looks like someone ate a HTML manual followed by a big fat javascript book, then a thin little pamphlet on CSS and vomited the entire contents of their stomach over a browser hoping that some of the good bits will stick.

    It’s an approach to web design I’m all too familiar with, working over at GU :)

    Will it still take longer than going out and buying a magazine at the shop to load up though?

    It does once you factor in the fifteen adverts you’re forced to watch before you can actually see the content.

    Stopped going to IGN when they started asking me to pay for information. Can’t justify that in any way…. and the site looks and loads like shit. I’ll stick with VG24/7, thanks.
