After months or even years of debate, and a Gamescom where I finally changed my mind, we are today announcing the Gamersyde Youtube channel. You'll find there all our videos within minutes of them being online on the main site. Update: Youtube has closed our account without any explanations except that we broke the community guidelines. We'll try and contact them but knowing Google there is little chance we'll be able to appeal. Oh well...
First, and by far the most important point. This is no way changes what makes Gamersyde what it is: The quality of our videos. Absolutely nothing changes, we've been making sure for almost 10 years now that we have the best video quality for gaming videos on the net, and while you won't get this on the Youtube channel, you'll still get it on the site as it has always been.
There are two reasons for this channel to exist. The first one is that (sadly) many people on younger side seem to think that youtube is basically the only place to watch videos on the internet, and while I find it sad that they do not get to enjoy these videos as they should be seen, I'd rather have them see our content with the proper Gamersyde attribution than without it.
That's the second point, we noticed during Gamescom a rather alarming number of our videos being posted on Youtube. Some with proper attribution, that's more or less acceptable, but quite a few went and removed our logos and watermarks and posted the video as their own. And within these few, one individual in particular went as far as to contest our removal request from Youtube, claiming that he was basically doing us a service by posting videos from such a crummy site as ours on his popular Youtube channel. And while we certainly are not done with this person, it was quite a blow for us to see such an attitude.
So there you have it, our own Youtube channel. I can't say I'm thrilled, but at least I've done this properly and shouldn't take any of our rather limited time. Enjoy!
going for £1299 on amazon.co.uk last week but has since raised to £1429. ur right wait for the new years sales and it might drop back to £1299 or lower. Costco's deal suited me best before christmas. (1 Hour ago)
a 65" SJ850 costs less than a 55" B7 OLED here in the UK, and a 65" B7 OLED is about twice the price of a 65" SJ850. I got my SJ850 from Costco online for £1399 with a 5 yr warranty. The SJ850 was... (1 Hour ago)
