There is some info from NewTeeVee on the latest plans by the FunnyOrDie people:
“Glover kept mum on most details of the new video game site, but did spill a few tidbits. “The video game site will not be a game-playing site,” said Glover. “If we became a game-playing site, that actually limits who we could partner with, who we could align with, and advertisers we could get.”
Let’s review… FunnyOrDie launched just over a year ago to a lot of attention due to the fact that the site was co-founded by Will Ferrell who graciously provided a very funny and very viral video called The Landlord. However, after the initial surge of viewers the site has been on a constant downward trend, losing close to 1,000,000 unique viewers over the course of a year.
Now they’re launching a gaming site that will not include any games one might play. The only thing I can imagine is a site for people to post recorded gameplay highlights. If that doesn’t get you excited nothing will.
