Future's computerandvideogames.com gets a fresh new look

True legend of gaming is reborn for 2006!

27/04/06 - Veteran UK games website, computerandvideogames.com (CVG) has this week unveiled its exciting new look - its first major redesign in almost five years.

The modern look and feel of the site is introduced as the CVG website gears up to cover all the major announcements and news direct from the show floor at next month's E3 expo in LA. Aiming to maintain its position as Europe's most respected and trusted games websites for hardcore male gamers, aged 25 to 40, CVG will continue delivering the biggest scoops, speak to the industry's biggest names and provide a brand new multimedia mix.

Its comprehensive redesign sees the popular multi-format games website expand and modernise, allowing it to feature more video and audio content direct from E3 than ever before. CVG is updated regularly each day with the latest news, biggest interviews, fresh reviews and features. The site continues the legacy of the UK's oldest and most fondly remembered games information source, which began life as a monthly magazine back in 1981.

Giving gamers a chance to choose the information they want, the new look CVG enables users to select how news, reviews and features are filtered - with the option to pick dedicated Nintendo, PC, PlayStation, Xbox and mobile channels.

John Houlihan is Editor of computerandvideogames.com:

"The time was right to relaunch CVG, with the biggest and potentially, most exciting E3 ever just around the corner. As a true legend of the UK games scene, CVG has been addicted to gaming since 1981 and this experience shows. The new look enables us to give readers more of what they love, irreverent but serious coverage for an ever expanding army of grown-up gamers. The relaunch is really only the beginning and we're planning to bring even more innovation and new features to the site throughout the rest of 2006. Watch this space."

James Ashton, Group Publisher for Future's London games portfolio added:

"As one of the world's oldest publications about video games computerandvideogames.com continues to blaze a trail with its latest online incarnation. As technologies evolve and reader demands change, Future is committed to leading the pack, providing information and entertainment in innovative and exciting new ways."
