What's that? Pocket Gamer looks a bit different from before? Well, yes it does and there's a very good reason for that – it's had a spruce. I know, I know, between Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, and the PG redesign, it was hard to tell which legendary things were just pure myth.

We've taken that out of your hands though and made it a reality, or rather Jez Bridgeman (Steel Media, Creative Director) and Jay Filmer (Steel Media, Technical Lead) did with their website wizardry. You may also notice that Pocket Gamer has snipped off its '.co.uk' tail and replaced it with Pocketgamer.com instead. Plus, it's a lot faster and more responsive than before.

"The busy Pocket Gamer site was in need of decluttering and refocusing," says COO Dave Bradley. "The team have delivered a new site that does exactly that. It paves the way for Ric and his world-class writers to concentrate on community and celebration, diving deep into the games that matter and providing resources that help gamers get the most from them."

Originally launched back in 2006, Pocket Gamer was one of the first websites to start crying out about the mobile scene and, yes, it came out before even the App Store opened its metaphorical doors. What you see of the new site at the moment will only be improved upon in the coming weeks.

Chris James, CEO of parent company Steel Media, says "We're incredibly proud of what our top b2c site has achieved since we launched it over a decade ago, but the time has come for a refresh. Today marks the beginning of a new era for the site. Here's to the next 10 years!"
