I think is GS was smart, they'd go silent on the whole situation, eventually people will stop and move on to the next big thing. By editing this, deleting that, and commenting on it, they're just stirring the pot and keeping it going themselves.

Crap, they disabled user reviews on the game. And I wanted to add my 2 cents. Bummer.

Has Gerstmann said anything about it?
Maybe so, but I find it too hard to believe it is a coincidence they took down the video review and user reviews at the same time as firing him.

Unless of course he went insane because of Kane and Lynch

saw this on another site:

He would be sued if he discusses why he is fired, as he is under NDA.

What a load of crap. You know Jeff got fired because of his bad review. Have you seen any of the game? It looks horrible! I agree that the multiplayer brings a new and fresh idea, but I haven't played the game so I dunno how it's like. All in all, I'd be extremely surprised if the game is good.

To me, Rich Gallup was Gamespot, as well as the Kevin guy, who is now a bigshot at Electronic Arts.

Jeff was about the last guy on Gamespot who could be entertaining.

At least they finally bothered to deny the rumors. I still don't think I believe them though. I mean, why pull his video review? Not to mention the fact that Eidos still has some pretty shady stuff on their site for the game, so it's not at all inconceivable that they would pressure a site to do something like this.

As I've said before, we'll probably never know for sure what happened, but this whole situation has a pretty rotten stench surrounding it.
