UPDATE: FileFront was bought from Ziff Davis Media by the original owners and has announced that it will continue operating! See the full story here.
Despite the big closings like Circuit City and the demise of financial institutions due to the economic recession, I haven’t seen too many web sites go down. Thus, I was a bit surprised to read the news that FileFront, the popular gaming-related file host will be closing its doors on March 30th.
I’ve used them for many (mostly video) downloads in the past. Anytime something familiar announces a departure, it really hits you that maybe the current situation is not just in your mind after all. I wonder what other staple web sites will fall in the near future.
