GamePro steals other sites articles


Ok, so get this shit -- last Saturday XBLRadio posted a story on their blog about how Best Buy was screwing us by charging an extra $3 for some of their more profitable Xbox 360 accessories. XBLRadio coiled this the "Halo 3 Tax". Ha ha, very clever, moving on.

Now, last night GamePro posted an article about a supposed "Halo 3 Tax" at, of all places, Best Buy. Now, take a good, close look at that picture. Does it look familiar? It should. It's the same image posted by XBLRadio on the last Saturday.

Now I have no problem with people reporting news from other sites. Hell, that's how news spreads across the internet. Like herpes. Even I do it. But what struck me was that GamePro made absolutely NO mention of the original XBLRadio article that this was taken from.

To me, that's bullshit, and only goes to show how far GamePro has fallen since it's glory days of mediocrity.

Finally, if you Digg this up, I'll pay for your next prostitute. Honest.

About MaximusPaynicusone of us since 3:44 PM on 01.27.2007


My name is James. By day I am a freelance copywriter and editor. While the perks of this job are getting to sleep 'til 2pm and working in my underwear, I've learned far more about hemorrhoid cream and proper swimming pool chlorination than I ever care to.

I guess you could say I'm a "former" video game "journalist" (though I wouldn't call myself the J word). I am the former Editor-in-Chief of Binge Gamer and I spent time writing at other blogs. I gave it up because while I love gaming and the gaming industry, I just didn't have the constitution to run my own business.

Not at the age of 23, anyways.

Let's see... apart from that I'm prior service US Army (Military Police), a stand-up comedian, a connoisseur of soft drinks and I once wrestled a cheetah.

I was victorious.
