    A pretty poor april fool joke. I saw through it right away. Can't remember what GBATemp did last year, but that was also lame.

    Interesting how: the domain is still registered to France, new moderators initials spell APRIL, and that the advert on the front page is entitled 'CNET Advert'...fishy.

    I'm pretty sure it's a joke. A nice joke, in fact. But, what annoys me is when a prank gets busted and the prankster still tries to shove it down your throat. [​IMG]

    This is pretty obvious. If you've paid attention over the past, this is something that was nurtured by Shaun and Costello, and they vowed never to 'sell out' I think the whole concept of this is poking fun at some other sites.

    Besides, why would C|Net be partnered with a site that predominantly updates it's users on ROM releases, hacks and borderline piracy issues? That's bad for business.

    C|Net and its partners have done lots of things bad for business. I don't think buying up a ROM news site would be their worst mistake.
