On the Verge Again: Vox Media Officially Launches Into Videogames Content Arena
Vox Media, the Washington, D.C., online media start-up that launched a new tech site called The Verge last fall, is debuting an early version of its expected videogames offering later today.
The site, temporarily called Vox Games, will begin daily publishing today as a section on The Verge, to be followed later by a standalone site under a new brand name.
The company said that “our goal here is to create the premier destination and media outlet for video games news, reviews, video and entertainment.”
As with The Verge, the Vox Games staff is made up of well-known editorial personnel from other prominent sites. It is headed up by former Joystiq Editor in Chief Chris Grant.
Other staffers are former editors in chief of top videogames sites, including Brian Crecente (Kotaku) and Russ Pitts (Escapist).
