DailyRadar Closing

by Steve Gibson, Apr 30, 2001 11:59am PDT

It seems like only yesterday that DailyRadar showed up. Despite what many people felt was some questionable things they have done and posted DR has also managed to fairly consistently come up with some pretty good scoops and videos and information on upcoming games. Well they are closing up shop. A few people have forwarded along the email that was sent out. Here's a bit of it:

Both DailyRadar and the Computing Network achieved many successes in their relatively short lives: these were high traffic sites with decent revenues and - better still - we were proud of them because of what they did for consumers. Sadly though, we're currently in an economy that is incredibly unforgiving of investments in the Internet that are not on very fast tracks to profitability. DailyRadar and the Computing Network were on track to profitability but we couldn't devise a plan that would deliver it anything fast enough...
Ok this is getting a little scary.. eek. A notice should be up on DailyRadar later today as they are closing immediately, also the guys at GameSpyDaily have gotten confirmation of the reports.
