After hearing all about the cuts accruing at 1up, people turned blame to the company that just recently purchased the web blog, UGO. I can not say that UGO is to blame. Some people say they are some people say they aren’t. Some time this type of thing happens when a new company takes over. Check out what UGO CEO had to say about the whole thing.

“We really have largely left it alone. We kept, we believe, the core editorial group that can continue to do great things. What we’re adding is as an editorial site that will sit on top of the UGO publishing site. And we kept who we believe are the critical people who can make up a great site.” – J Moses, CEO of the UGO Entertainment
