IGN makes content page update

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.
