3D Portal closed

Another gaming network bites the dust

Source - GameSpy / 3D Portal

During the chaos of E3 last week, we managed to miss the announcement that the 3D Portal network had closed following a buy-out by GameSpy Industries earlier in the month, adding yet another name to the long list of gaming sites and networks which have collapsed in the last few months. All that is left of the long-running network, which started out life five years ago as a 3D Realms fan site, is a farewell message from founder Brad Wernicke, while HalfLife.net, DukeWorld and UTWorld are all in the process of being merged into the appropriate Planet sites. A similar fate befell the Xtreme Network after it was bought by GameSpy as part of a deal to acquire the MPlayer online gaming service.
