US site Shacknews has been bought by GameFly, as confirmed here.

Fileshack’s gone with it. The outlet was formed in 1995. No financials terms were disclosed.

“GameFly has demonstrated a true understanding of and commitment to Shacknews’ gaming culture,” said Shacknews founder Steve Gibson.

“We are confident GameFly will protect the legacy and community we’ve established, while at the same time providing much needed resources to expand into new and exciting areas that would not otherwise be possible.”
