IGN’s parent company, Ziff Davis Inc who are also the parent company of 1UP, IGN, UGO, and PC Magazine has emailed developers who have previously won awards to offer them a rare opportunity, they’re offering the chance to buy the rights to use one of their game of the year logos, at $500 a pop.
Notch, furious posted pictures of the email onto Imgur, this could be a scam, or Notch trolling which isn’t something he usually does. Notch tweeted:
“Wow, we won like a million awards from these amazing scam artists”
The picture also gloats about how their seal of approval is the best known, and how large their magazines and websites are.
