Games-World.net has pumped out a press release lording itself for still being in business, in response to Barrysworld sad demise yesterday.

The release starts: "The management and staff of Games-World Net would like to express their sadness at the demise of Barrysworld." Before telling the world how it had started with the same business model as Barrysworld but was clever enough to change and adapt. It will "be around for a while", it scoffs.

While we're here, Games-World would like to point out some errors in Barrysworld's own press release on the matter of its liquidation. "Games ISPs are not all in their death throes as BW are implying. GWN is profitable and will be in business for the foreseeable future. GWN is able to make money on dial and server rental and we have more services in the pipeline to further the company."

And so on and so forth. In fact, so excited and sustainable is Games-World that it has launched some kind of huge giveaway on its site. We're touched by Games-World's sympathy. ®
