    The New York Post is reporting that our former hosts, GameSpy Industries, are up for sale:



    CNET Networks, which holds a stake in GameSpy, and an "unnamed major portal" are among possible suitors for the company, according to a source. CNET said it doesn't comment on speculation, but a source close to the company said there is a "serious level of interest" in buying GameSpy.



    GSI, a privately-held company with reported revenues of about $17 million, has been posting a large number of jobs on their website over the past couple of months, including Editor-In-Chief and FilePlanet Project Manager, recently filling positions such as Director of Product Development and Director of IT.

    We'll have more on this breaking story as news becomes available.

    It's quite feasable that whoever buys GSI will abolish the whole Planet* thing in favour of a bigger GameSpot-style GameSpy.com portal.

    Keep in mind that this story comes to us via the New York Post, which - in some circles - is considered little more than a tabloid. Until there's an official word from the Green and Black Empire, nobody knows what's really going on, if anything.
