Kinda seems underhanded to me but given the state Gamespot has in recently, its hardly surprising he would leave......but it is surprisngly that he left in favor for IGN.

IGN dipping into the GS stable.. feels dirty. I'm sure there's no great love for CNet among the staff here but to jump ship from your dysfunctional family to join forces with a direct competitor, effective immediately, does raise the eyebrow. But best of luck to Jason, he'll do a great job for them. His contributions will be missed.

GS and IGN are major competitors, but it's not surprising considering the editor exodus recently, and to be EIC of the PC channel at IGN is definetely a step up. Relocating from San Fran to LA couldn't have been easy, though...

IGN's PC division was the only one worth a damn and now it just got a lot better.

IGN is in Brisbane, right outside of SF. So no relocation necessary!

I stand corrected. :P

I guess it's because they disparagingly referred to "our friends in San Francisco" once, talking about GS, so I thought they were in LA. Go figure, lol.

I've always liked Ocampo's PC reviews. I wish him the best of luck and success.
