Bleem replaced the front page of its Web site over the weekend with a graphic depicting a tombstone in a grassy field. The stone says, “Bleem! April 1999 – November 2001.” The title of the page was also changed to “Game Over.” Sony first sued Bleem over its products in May 2000. Bleem counter sued, claiming Sony was exercising an illegal monopoly over the videogame industry. A Sony spokesman said he was not aware of the shutdown and could not immediately comment.
