I guess they'll have to if they want to avoid making a mess out of the front page, blog post are not the most ideal for a lot of info.
Haa that front page looks crazy!

#4 Posted by Kush (9089 posts) -

Definitely looks pretty awesome to me. Sort of makes me want to do drugs and eat fruit roll ups!

Haha, Vinny's 5 star picture totally fits in there with the Japan craze!

Its really cool. But I have to admit, the first thing it reminded me of when I first saw it was Gamespot's home page whenever they get a new big advert. When they skin the site. But this is much cooler

While it looks cool, it saddens me a little to know that it won't be long before we see adverts there instead of vinny and ryan's pics.

SS Vinny, awesome

#12 Posted by HandsomeDead (11854 posts) -

That Super Saiyan Vinny pic never gets old.

#13 Posted by c_rakestraw (922 posts) -

That's an awesome background. I wonder if they'll be doing this for any other events.

#14 Posted by MisterSpiffy (908 posts) -

Wow, that's pretty nice.

I'd take adverts over the site closing down though dude?

And it sounds like they're being very proactive with the adverts anyway. I mean it's taken them this long so you'd presume when they do implement them they're focusing on doing it right?

Can't wait for all the TGS coverage and those PS3 announcements (plus any others that will inevitably come).

Yeah I know adverts are a good thing, but putting such an awesome front page skin on before they put advertising skins on will just make the adverting seem horrible.

They said the adverts wont be intrusive or overbearing, and I think this fits the bill. I imagine they'll use that top space (where it says "All week in Tokyo) for ad space, but I can't see them skinning the whole front page

Nope, they plan on skinning the whole front page.

A.  Brad has a weird face in that picture.
B.  BEER!!!
C.  Hopefully, they are going to do some form of Halloween theme/Thanksgiving theme/Hanakkah (sp?) theme/Christmas theme.

Wow, it's going to be weird seeing the site look so different after it having no ads for so long.

I must apologize for my re-post of this topic; thanks for the redirect Brukaoru. 

Anyways, I couldn't agree more with the rest of you.  The design is absolutely beautiful and quite eye-catching.  It will be sad to have ads replace the awesomeness, but we've been spoiled and business is business.

I'm sure Jeff and the crew will do their best to incorporate ads that are not incredibly imposing. It looks like they are going for a GameSpot kind of design in the placement. As long as they keep it field-related, this is fine.

A bit off-key: Just wondering if Eidos will ever advertise on GB. That'd be pretty awkward!
