IGN Entertainment has a new owner. After being on the auction block for six months J2 Global (parent company of Ziff Davis) has purchased the internet gaming giant for an undisclosed amount from News Corp.

News Corp. bought IGN back in 2005 for $650 million and rumors suggest that the sale was for much, much less than that amount. The sale will include all of IGN’s other networks and sites like 1UP.com.
