If you are a gamer, I bet you have heard of this name — FileFront. NO?
Here is a brief one, thanks to Wikipedia:
FileFront is a computer game and video game download service that provides patches, demos, modifications and other user generated game related content. It was first launched in December 2001, and created by I/O Error Development.
The current owner of FileFront, Ziff Davis (Ziff Davis Media Game Group) who bought it back in 2005 will put FileFront off the line on March 30, 2009 — for good and for ever.
In a message (see below) posted by FileFront’s management and team, all FileFront operations will be suspended indefinitely citing poor economic conditions as the driving factor.
Dear FileFront User:
We regret to inform you that we are forced to indefinitely suspend the FileFront site operations on March 30, 2009. If you have uploaded files, images or posted blogs, or if you would like to download some of your favorite files, please take this opportunity to download them before March 30th when the site will be suspended.
We would like to give a warm thank you to all of you who have been part of the FileFront communities we have built together. Your support has had a meaningful impact for all of us here at FileFront. Again, we want to give you a sincere “thank you” for your support over the years and wish you all the very best.
Keep gaming alive,
FileFront Management and Team.
If you have any file hosted there, better grab it ASAP before it’s too gone for good! So, again you have been warned.
I’m sad to see you go, but it happens.
