Being a big fan of GameCentral here in the U.K., i was gobsmacked to hear that with teletext being shut down in January 2010, there will probably be no more GameCentral. For those of you that are wondering what the hell i am on about, read the Wiki page here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_central

And for those of you who like me, love their games and read this every day, please sign the petition here: http://www.petitiononline.com/SaveGC/petition.html

I hadn't been reading for about a month or so since the TV arial for the bedroom got knocked out of place (it's in the flat upstairs and i've been too lazy to ring the landlord to tell him), and i couldn't find Gamecentral on digital teletext - i have now though (ITV1 page 805) - and am outraged at this news!

Do you read it daily too, Mr. Street? And did you read the Digitiser pages too??

I took some photos of it too, Gord knows if I can find them though . yea its pants that Teletext is closing down but I guess with the switch off of analogue TV it was bound to happen. But are they going to keep the digital teletext service up? Even though it's not great.

The whole thing is shutting down - normal teletext, digital teletext and henceforth everything on it. It was going to shut down two years later, but the powers that be decided to close early.

Online petition? That isn't going to work. Online petitions never work.

With nothing else to add, all I have left to say is that people in journalism often stay in journalism; They rarely have the skillsets required to do anything else but write articles. With any luck, the contributers and other staff will continue their work in some other media. Perhaps a blog or mailing list!
