Brendan Sinclair joins GamesIndustry International

Veteran journalist will bolster the US team

GamesIndustry International is pleased to announce the latest addition to our US team. After seven years of tracking down news for CBS-owned consumer games site GameSpot, Brendan Sinclair is joining the editorial team led by James Brightman in New York. 

Brendan will be working from Toronto, leveraging the growing development scene in Ontario, Canada, to further bolster GamesIndustry International's already robust news and feature coverage. 

Brendan joins GamesIndustry International during a time of amazing growth for the number one games trade publication. Since relaunching back during the Game Developers Conference, GamesIndustry International's audience has grown substantially, reaching a high watermark over the summer of well over 1 million visits. 

"I'm excited to join the talented team at GamesIndustry International. The business of games is going through a period of tremendous upheaval, and there's no site better positioned to cover it from all angles," Sinclair commented.

"I'm ecstatic that Brendan has chosen to join GamesIndustry International. His ability to sniff out exclusive news scoops and track down the big stories will be a huge asset for the website as we continue to grow our brand on a global scale," said US editor James Brightman.

Brendan officially starts today, September 10, and game companies are encouraged to reach out to him at

Welcome indeed. You're a perfect fit here Brendan. You are/were my favorite columnist on Gamespot and that was kind of because of your industry centric approach. This site could not get a better fitting person for the job!

Aloha and Congratulations. I look forward to your contributions to GamesIndustry International

Edit: Not to ruin the moment or anything, but the picture reminds me of Mustache Dad from Twilight... Which I only watched with Rifftrax... Just sayin'...
