GamesIndustry.biz's sister site, Eurogamer, has relaunched with an entirely new site design, adopting a customisable content feed and infinite scrolling as part of the new front page.

The new site launched concurrently across ten different European domains in as many languages, and features device specific layouts for HD, portable and mobile platforms. Google search has been integrated to help find content, whilst social networking tools have been integrated to facilitate content sharing.

Behind the scenes, the new site incorporates extra capacity from server and other hardware upgrades to ensure speed and reliability.

"I'm proud that we have built the new Eurogamer around content and community," said Eurogamer Operations director Tom Bramwell. "We're embracing HD and tailoring the full experience to multiple devices to match the rise of tablets, netbooks and smartphones. We can't wait to hear what people think!"

The Eurogamer network is Europe's leading independent games media specialist and has recently expanded into the US with the acquisition of IndustryGamers.

I had a look last night about an hour after they launched, I quite like it, looks tidier. :)

Running it in the "Portable" mode (at bottom of EG page) on PC is my preferred choice. Greats rid of 90% of the ads, and is much cleaner looking in general. ;)

@Martin. Agreed. It's very noisy when in HD view.

Seems to get a lot less on a page regardless of which mode you use to look at it. Cleaner redesign is welcome, but more paging/scrolling isn't.

And the Digital Foundry box seems to have vanished. Too bad; that's my favorite feature; it was nice to see what was new on it (though it sometimes didn't get updated).
