Future US, the UK-based publisher's American arm, has announced it has made an undisclosed equity investment in games news social media company N4G. Through the investment, N4G will join Future US's GamesRadar network, which includes the sites GamesRadar, FileRadar.net, Gloob.tv, OXMOnline and the "soon to be re-launched" PCGamer.com. N4G is driven by user-submitted links to video game articles online which are ranked by user popularity. N4G members can also participate in forum discussions, and bookmark news story links, among other social tools. Members also collect "N4G Credits" which can be used to bid on games and other items in the N4G Marketplace. According to Future, N4G, owned and operated by Vegard and Håvard Aure, received 3.65 million visits in January 2008, with 17.8 million page views and nearly a million unique visitors. Future US publishing director Simon Whitcombe commented, “N4G provides an important news content aggregation element to the GamesRadar Network as well as excellent social media functionality. It expands our offerings not only to our huge consumer base of gamers, but also to our growing roster of advertisers.”
