All good things must come to an end, and Dealspwn is no exception. We'll get right to the point - today is our last day of operation. While it is sad that we will be no more, there's no denying that we've had a fantastic run since we began in 2009. We've covered some utterly brilliant (and frankly terrible) games during that time, built up a fantastic community that has engaged and entertained us, and we saved you all a few pennies here and there.
Or sent out back the way of Old Yeller. I'm not sure how the internet actually works.
Anyway, a huge thanks to all of our previous writers over the years - Mario, Felix, Dave, Matt, Jon, Lydia, David, Tom, Josh, and Chris - as well as the HUKD crew who helped out throughout this year - Buzz, Gooner, Turkey, Neotrix, and FantasyDeals - and to the network itself for allowing the team to cover the industry we love. Last but by no means least, a huge thank you to you, our readers. Without your continued support, your points of view, and light-hearted abuse, we simply could not have existed. In short, it has been an absolute privilege.
You can follow the surviving Dealspwn staff Brendan and Carl on their Twitter feeds to find out what is next for them, but 2016 is a year of new horizons for us all. That also includes our beloved mascot Toby the Dealspwny, who was "born" to highlight how many people mispronounced the site's name. It's Deals Pwn, not Deal Spwn!
Although, funny story - an announcer once introduced Jon as "Jonathan Lester from DEALS PAWN", which sounded like Deals Porn at the time. It was hilarious.
Anyway, I guess all that's left to do is give you a few highlights from our time before we switch off the lights. Enjoy the highlights, and thanks for visiting!
