GameSpot is a video gaming website that provides news, reviews, previews, downloads, and other information on video games. The site was launched on May 1, 1996, created by Pete Deemer, Vince Broady and Jon Epstein. It was purchased by ZDNet, a brand which was later purchased by CNET Networks.
Andy Jassy, the new Amazon who is taking over after Jeff Bezos steps down, has pledged his support to help the company do better and do more in the gaming space.
Jassy said in an email to staff, obtained by Bloomberg, that Amazon Game Studios might not have succeeded right away, but he’s in it for the long-haul.
“Some businesses take off in the first year, and others take many years,” Jassy said. “Though we haven’t consistently succeeded yet in AGS, I believe we will if we hang in there.”
