Fresh lick of paint for leading industry publication; Reports service added

MCV has overhauled its web presence, adding a brand new design, numerous new features and a registration-led community.

“The most obvious change to the site is the look and feel, which we believe offers readers a cleaner and more engaging browsing experience,” said MCV Editor-in-chief Michael French.

“We've taken away the clutter, allowing you to get to what you want quickly and easily. The Carousel and Homestream are now the focal points of the site, allowing you to immediately see the most important stories of the day and then scroll down the page to view everything else that happening in and around the industry.”

Once registered to the site, users can:

- Create a Public Profile
- Comment on articles
- 'Follow' articles you've commented on
- Buy MCV reports
- Sign up for MCV emails and manage your preferences
- Access digital editions of MCV magazine
- Post job vacancies
- Buy a directory listing for your company

In terms fo new content, MCV has launched a Reports service from which readers can buy some of the best games market research available. It will offer reports from respected third party companies and from the in-house specialist journalists. Prices range from under £50 to around £500.

The revamped Retail Biz section remains dedicated to the games retail sector, offering all the key Release Date information, the latest official Charts, Recommended titles and regular Price Checks.

As always, the MCV Jobs Board is the place to go if you're a recruiter or a potential candidate, while the new online extension of the MCV Directory is a comprehensive listing of the games industry's best and brightest companies - add yours today!

The Events section, meanwhile, offers a complete rundown of the best conferences and networking opportunities the games industry has to offer.

"The new site offers an improved reader experience, more content and genuine benefits for registered users," said MCV publisher and Intent Media boss Stuart Dinsey. "The MCV brand is also expanding into paid content, international sub-brands and enhanced iPad, iPhone and digital editions.

"Plus there's a UK trade lounge at Gamescom, widening print readership and looming Android app. So  it's fair to say that we're offering more than ever to our trade audience."
