    All Games Beta, commonly referred to as AGB has today closed down. The site has been replaced with a single image marking the end of the short-stayed site. AGB entered the Gaming scene in January without as much as a whisper but soon became a must-see-site for the latest Gaming gossip, leaks and news. The site will be missed by many.[/p]

    Never heard of it myself. [​IMG] That's probably why it's shut down; no one even knew it existed.

    Obviously people haven't been paying attention to the gaming news scene lately... Most posts now on sites are sourced from AGB, it's always got the information out first and has many many leaks of information that have always been right, if you never heard of the site, all's I can say is you really missed out.

    Archive.org has no record of them.

    Then again, they have no record of my site either (the UniqueGeeks.Net online/offline nds/gba save converters)

    Never heard of them, on top of which they lasted 6 months.

    Probably won't be missed.

    People do pay attention, but attention or not isn't the reason. Sometimes, news posts contain the same paragraph from the source, or enough information for them to go 'wow' and then 'eh', making looking at the source useless unless they wanted other type of info, which wouldn't happen unless they were bored.

    Other than that, sad news is sad. (Knew nothing of the site, though)

    Let me point something out to you guys: AllGamesBeta.

    Does that mean that they were just testing the water, or are they going to open a new site with more money?

    Sounds like they meant that they report news of beta (and such unfinished) games, what with the leaked screenshots and upcoming games focus they had.

    Yea, I kind of thought about that after I posted. Though it was sort of thought provoking. Z.Z

    sorry to see a video game website go down.

    But I've never heard of it.
