GOG.com Conference Reveals Closing as Low PR Stunt

eldavojohn (898314) writes "A press conference from noon today revealed that GOG's closing was a hoax designed to promote the transition from Beta to full service. Several people claimed as such but GOG said in a media press conference online, 'We'd like to apologize to everyone who felt deceived or harmed in any way by the closedown of GOG.com. As a small company we don't have a huge marketing budget and this why we could not miss a chance to generate some buzz around an event as big as launching a brand new version of our website.' Although deceiving and worrying, it appears GOG is doing better than ever and those who invested in GOG can rest easy for now."

Ah, cool. So in a couple months we'll get another article about how GOG.com is really dead this time because they decided to cash in all their trust with this stunt, and we won't believe them. Hilarity will ensue!
