DailyRadar.com has become the latest in gaming Web sites to be switched off. A note on its site says: "Well, folks... The internet soufflé has collapsed (you probably read about it in the news), and Daily Radar is no longer publishing. Here's the top ten reasons Daily Radar will no longer publish:"

It then goes on to give 12 reasons as to why it no longer exists, none of which give much insight into the real reason it has been wound up (although they're worth a read).

The site is just one of a number of gaming sites that have been battered or shut down in recent months. Back in March, we reported on how Future Publishing had decided to lay off three-quarters of the Daily Radar.co.uk staff. No one was entirely sure why.

CNet shut down Gamecenter - although it tried to push everyone through to Gamespot. Then Barrysworld was only saved by the intervention of EB.

The main problem with the market has been the slow down in sales due to people waiting to see what will happen over Microsoft's hugely hyped Xbox. On top of this, advertising has collapsed. Affiliate ad networks look decidedly sickly - Snowball sacked a third of its staff last month, eFront is coughing up phlegm and UGO has had to get mediaeval on people's asses to stay afloat.
