According to this GI report, CNET has laid off staff in the UK due to “current market conditions,” a move that’s hit Gamespot UK.
“We have recently reviewed the structure of our company,” a spokesperson said. “Due to current market conditions and the changing needs of the business we reviewed our team structure to ensure we continue to operate a successful business.
“As a result we have made some staff cut backs, affecting a small number of CNET Networks’ UK employees.”
GSUK editor Phil Elliot left the site last year to head up GamesIndustry.biz for Eurogamer Network. News editor Emma Boyes has also now left, according to that piece.

It’s Euro web-war, kids. Gamespot UK today claimed it has 3.5 million unique users (UUs) in the UK, quoting ABCe figures from December.
“The gaming industry has seen explosive growth over the last 12 months, with new game launches such as Halo 3 far outstripping the majority of film openings in terms of first-day sales,” said GameSpot UK site manager Laura Jenner. “The UK gaming community is highly passionate and our experienced editorial team is dedicated to delivering the kind of targeted, in-depth and knowledgeable content that this community has come to expect. This audit confirms GameSpot UK’s position as the interactive gaming community of choice within the UK, and we look forward to building on this success further in 2008.”
The news comes on the back of recent figures from Eurogamer Network (1.8 million UUs across Eurogamer.net, Eurogamer.de and Eurogamer.fr) and Computec (1.39 million UUs across its German network, mainly on PCGames.de and Buffed.de). CVG’s last major figures-release was in last May, which claimed 1.56 million UUs across the CVG Network.
