1up is owned by...the MAN?
Well, duh. Considering 1up = EGM and that I have yet to see any independent game magazine with EGM's reach and distribution ability, this comes as no surprise. The fact that 1up is a part of Ziff Davis media and that Ziff is owned by uber investor Willis Stein doesn't automatically make 1up an underground operative for [conspiracy theorists insert publisher name here]. Stein doesn't seem to be hoarding up on game publications so I wouldn't worry too much about it. 1up may have to filter certain news items and/or comply with certain rules or regulations but that's what us little people blogs are for. Game-hawg, you're alternative to THE MAN. spread the word.
