As you may have noticed, we've rolled out some site navigation changes today, updating the terms in our main navigation and introducing a new content promotional unit.

The biggest change is the new three-item content promotion unit that appears on all story pages. These items showcase the biggest stories on GameSpot and will generally mirror what's at the top of the GameSpot homepage. The idea is that this will make it easier for users busy reading reviews, previews, news, or game guides to see the latest major updates right when they hit the site.

This is latest of a number of site enhancements we're rolling out this month. We're eager to hear your feedback, so please post comments below.

It is alright. I liked it better when the video game systems were different than the others.

I spent like ages trying to fix my browser because it came out weird at first. Now, it comes out fine. Thanks for this. Looks much more bolder now. No more GBA/GC I see. I can understand this.

I do think there should be a unions link somewhere so it makes finding unions easier right from any page.

I don't like how everything is bolded, but it is nice that there aren't as many consoles on the list. Where can you go to find the pages for the other consoles that were removed?

First time I saw that I just thought my comp had spazzed, but it looks kinda cool. One thing though, you can't open a new window from the menus now. When I'm surfing a page butI wanna check out something elseon the site, it was really useful to be able to open the link into a new window, rather than start up IE again.

The bold might take some getting use to... :P

It looked all black and trendy for a second. Was that a glitch, or will that eventually be implemented?

EDIT: I see that the black trendy look only kicks in on news pages (or my internet browser is glitching) - why not make that sitewide? And also, are the Xbox and GC tabs gone for good now?

The new look only appears when I enter the site. When I switch to another page it gets back to normal.

I like it a lot :)

It's a really nice change to the gamespot, but it doesnt seem to work with firefox browser. In the gamespace page, the layout is just untidy. Hope gamespot can fix this.

That's weird. It looks different on IE/Safari and Firefox.

On IE and Safari, it looks just like it did before, except with the new tabs.

However, on Firefox, the old black bar where the consoles are is not there. Weird.

I like it on Firefox better.

I think all of the console tabs should be removed and replaced with a single tab called consoles and when you click that all of the consoles are listed that wouid be alot better I think.cryptosopoidium

Dont you think it would look to empty?

It looks the same for me in IE and Firefox...

You should leave the Gamecube tab for at least till the end of the year.tequilero

Considering that there are virtually no future Gamecube games, and that the tab hasn't been updated since Leo Star Wars 2 came out (and then the only other recent update was TP's release), I'd say that it's time to let the tab go.

It looks quite ugly now. The all-white tab was very clean and Apple-like. Can you guys make it like a theme?

Where you can choose the style, kinda like you guys have for the background color!

I know, Gamespot changed it.

It looked really cool before on Firefox. Now it just looks like the old tab from yesterday.

Hmm, the old firefox look was pretty cool. But I was on right when they changed it, and took a 10 minute break to eat, so I don't get how that slipped by me. :|

I was really hoping for some sort of navigation for GameSpot endorsed Unions' news articles, but unfortunately that doesn't seem to be in development...

Maybe try clearing your cache or something like that - I don't know how to do it, but I've heard it works for other people.

Well done Gamespot, I'm liking the new look, bolded things up, taking out things that arn't used as much anymore, I think it all looks pretty good.

The bold fonts on the top navigation bar (forums, videos, etc)look too bold. The previous font was better.

I'm using Opera (not on the Wii I might add) and it looks fine for me. I like the new look. It's more compact and tidy. I also find it interseting that you took the GC, GBA, XB platforms off, but it makes since cause those platforms are being faded out nowadays. I never checked the individual console pages anyhow. The top-stories thing is cool, but the thumbnails don't always come in and when that happens it doesn't look as good. But overall I like it. Looks nice. :)

You can go HERE. Another way is to click the system links in the footer!

Sorry for double-posting but why list "cheat codes" two times. Replace the "cheat codes" button with a "unions" button considering there already is a cheat codes link underneath the consoles buttons.

Ok, I haven't seen anything different except for boldness, which I don't like. Maybe it's my cache, maybe it's because I have Ice as my layout, I don't know. I do know that I don't like the repetitive feeling I see. For example, I see cheat codes twice, one in the while like bar and one in the blue bar below it. And I personally don't feel that "sports" is that important to have up there. If anything needs to be up there, it should be "unions," and it should be in the first spot where "forums" is.

it looks good. But i would suggest that every time your arrow moves to a section something about it come out. Like when you scroll to froums you see hot topics, or when you go to videos you see the top 5 most seen videos and in news you see todays headlines.

A Unions tab would be nice, but there is a big need for GameSpot endorsed unions to get features where their news articles and links to the union get displayed on GameSpot. Right now being endorsed is almost pointless. It will also encourage other unions to set higher standards and improve their articles so they can become endorsed

I actually really like it and think it would be even better if it was shown all across the whole website rather than just the stories. I think it'll look really nice.

It's ok. I just think things should be easier to find. There are times where it takes me forever to find certain features. But I do like how things are starting to come together nicely.

Ok, now I see it, and I do like that. They need to make it throughout the whole site now except only the previews. :P Maybe with the union update they could integrate this into it. We have our unions and we can post news updates, right? Well, whenever one of the unions we select has an update, it goes in one of those boxes so we can be updated. Just a little thought that came to me when I first saw the new layout.

Thanks for telling me Davidhye.
