IGN’s bought WhatTheyPlay.com, as you can see here.

“As videogames become a mainstream form of entertainment, offering insight about game content that helps parents make informed decisions about what games are appropriate will be a useful service. We are excited to welcome What They Play into the IGN fold.” said IGN’s Peer Schneider.

WhatTheyPlay was set up two years ago in order to educate parents about games in general.

No financial terms were disclosed.
