The venerable GamePro brand – which began life as a magazine in 1989 – is being retired.

GamePro, G4TV and VGChartz have all issued apparently official statements after being caught out artificially elevating their content on social bookmarking site Reddit by using multiple accounts.

GamePro Media has shed two key execs – Daniel Orum (president and CEO) and Bob Huseby (senior VP, publisher) – despite the fact that GamePro magazine is “in a really good place,” according to SVP George Jones.
“We’re in a really good place now,” Jones told GameDaily.
“We measure the vibrancy of the magazine through the health of the publication on newsstands and we’re selling through at a good clip – not like the heydays of the ’90s but still really well on an issue-to-issue basis.”
He added that things picked up after the magazine and brand repositioned itself about three years ago.
“I see all the numbers and there’s no reason for us to worry right now,” he said.
GamePro’s circulation stands at just under two million.
No reason has been given for the departure of Orum and Huseby.

Pretty. We felt a bit like Homer with sprinkles when we look at this, a close up look at the cover panels of the upcoming GamePro Resistance 2 exclusive. We assume this is a ploy to preempt the fact the feature will be scanned in its entirety about 15 seconds after it falls through Johnny Internet’s letterbox, so good for GamePro. Take a look.

Americans are going to get the chance to win a beta key for Resistance 2 in the next issue of GamePro, as you can see here. This is the E3 issue, and it apparently contains a proper whopper of a story, which is presumably one of the big E3 reveals.
Take a look.

Epic boss Mark Rein has said that GamePro’s rumour of Microsoft being in the running to buy the developer is a little shy of the money.
“I have not seen the actual GamePro article but if they’re going to make predictions about us selling Epic we would prefer if they started at $2 billion,” he said. “Because we don’t want anyone thinking that we’re cheap.”
The GamePro prediction came to light yesterday.

According to this, the latest issue of GamePro predicts that Microsoft will buy Epic this year for $1 billion.
“Microsoft will buy Epic Games for $1 billion this summer,” said. Travis Moses, assistant editor at the US mag. “Epic Games is one of the few highly regarded indie developers… partly for their games but mostly for their Unreal engine technology. Microsoft has lots of cash on hand, and in buying Epic, could collect royalty rights for Unreal technology across other platforms. Given Epic’s tight partnership with Microsoft, along with widespread use of the Unreal engine, and this move makes a lot of sense, particularly in light of [Electronic Arts]’s Pandemic/BioWare merger [as] well as the Activision/Vivendi shockers.”
GamePro hit the news wholesale recently by running a Gears of War 2 flash on its cover, a move that drew down the wrath of the great Rein himself. Draw your own conclusion, number-crunching fans.

Read it here. It’s basically a guess at what to expect and, in total, it’s seven paragraphs long.
“In Gears 2, expect a slight graphical boost,” said the piece. “We also think four-player co-op is a must this time around. Seeing as how a number of other games are doing the team co-op thing, Gears 2 shouldn’t slack in that department. Overall, the multiplayer will probably see the most changes in the sequel. Though definitely fun, Gears of War’s online multiplayer component was no-frills. Expect a better matchmaking system, more game modes and better ranking.”
Epic boss Mark Rein called the idea of GamePro’s issue containing the announcement of the game “complete nonsense” yesterday. Just goes to show: listen to Mark.
