WoWHead.com Sells Out

Rollie

 
Insider information has rustled up that Affinity Media has purchased WoWHead.com for over $1 Million USD. After the story broke on http://www.techsoapbox.com/, WoWHead eventually confirmed the sale http://www.wowhead.com/. That means Affinity Media now owns Allahkazam, Thottbot, and WoWHead.

Wow interesting......


They were sold to Affinity Media, which use to own IGE but no longer does. But it still owns Alla and Thottbot.

Sure they sold out. If you sell to someone, you sold out, doesn't matter who it is.

As for the whole Affinity <-> IGE relationship, that is yet to be revealed. While Affinity claims to have sold IGE, and I have certain sources that do confirm something about that, it doesn't show the big picture and what kind, if any, of ongoing relationship they still share.

Interesting little article at CNet

Brock Pierce (CEO of IGE) was walking around with an Affinity Media badge on as recently as 2 days ago at a Virtual Goods Convention.

I'm not saying that anyone is being dishonest in claiming that Affinity Media no longer owns IGE, but that sure seems strange to me.

Where does it mention Affinity [i:823ffcdd9d]anywhere[/i:823ffcdd9d] in that article? Sure, if you can dig up that little piece of info [i:823ffcdd9d]somewhere[/i:823ffcdd9d], or at least mention where you got it from, I'll take that as fact... :/

So uh... Who are Affinity Media? Unless In-Game Dollar is a subsidiary of Affinity Media, then Affinity Media does not own [i:d7fd3924ee]Peons4Hire[/i:d7fd3924ee]. So who are they?

WoW will always be WoW to us... or w0w to me. Plus it's only natural to try to differentiate the words in a URL.

If someone came to me and wanted to buy something for a million dollars. That would be hard to pass up. Gold buying is not a moral issue to me, so I would do it.

Wowhead was already in the Zam network which was part of allakhazam and thottbot so I am not sure what the commotion is about. They were already indirectly owned by the gold sellers. Am I missing something?
