eldavojohn 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."
