Yea that definitely sucks. I usually download most of my files from there as they have the fastest speeds and no annoying waits like other places.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Filefront was one of the few sites that gave me 1.4mb/s downloads.

This serves me right for always clicking "continue to filefront"

I think they had a pretty steady business model, just the ad revenue dried up with nobody wanting to advertise much since its hard to sell anything in the first place right now.

I think as soon as the economy picks up again we'll have another good free, fast, no lines or registration download site again.

Like many, FileFront was the first place I went to for patches. The transfer rates are better than most pay services. Combine FileFront with GameTrailers and there really is no point in paying for any review site subscription.
