GBAtemp.net acquired by CNET Networks
First I would like to congratulate all the hardwork done by the staff and people behind the scene who made GBATemp up and running for many years. With the onboard of CNET Networks, does it mean we'll have "lose" the wiki site? It's a sensitive issue. All the hardwork and contributions by members of the forum, will it be archived and placed elsewhere?

*sigh*

Nicely done indeed. I was contemplating the absurdity of the matter and was reminded of the upcoming date...

This may be the only website that I visit that has an April Fool's event. I commend your efforts.

No it's a good joke. But maybe just a LITTLE farfetched.

I mean, cmon...CNET...one of the biggest media companies around...owning a site devoted to the Nintendo DS ROM / Wii ISO release scene? Haha...

To avoid the pursuit of legal action from C|NET, I assume.

It doesn't matter, Internet Lawyer.

It still says C GBATemp.net. If GBATemp has been bought, so has it's assets, intellectual property, etc.

Theres a 1/11881376 chance that all the new staff members first letterof their name can be arranged as april coincidentally. Their names are Ryan, Adam, Liam, Peter and Ian or Adam, peter, Ryan, Iran, and Liam.

Drop the joke,(If it is a joke).
