Coming soon

Last year, about a dozen editors/contributors behind tech blog Engadget jumped ship to start The Verge, a sister site of SB NATION, both owned by Vox Media. If you’re unfamiliar with their format, check them out – content / publishing focused, with an enormous group of community-based editorial contributors. According to reports the latest venture coming from Vox will be gaming focused. The vertical has been busy staffing up – hiring Chris Grant from Joystiq and Brian Crecente, former editor-in-chief of Kotaku, as well as editors/contributors from The Escapist, MTV News, and others from Joystiq. Until their site launches, they will be posting at The Verge.
