According to online sources, video game website GameSpot is preparing a launch for its GameCenter 'all-in-one gaming service', which combines dedicated game servers, anti-cheat measures, built-in voice over IP, and multiple community tools for a number of third-party PC online-compatible games. A preview site for the service mentions supported PC multiplayer games such as America's Army: Special Forces, Battlefield 1942, Battlefield Vietnam, Counter-Strike Source, Far Cry, Unreal Tournament 2004, and Nascar Racing, among others. Competitors for this new GameSpot property, which is tied in to the rest of the site's editorial content, include IGN Entertainment's GameSpy Arcade service, UK-headquartered clan site Jolt, as well as a host of smaller community sites. CNET Networks, which owns GameSpot, formerly used the GameCenter name for its own video game editorial site in the late 1990s, before closing it in favor of the ZDNet-acquired GameSpot in early 2001.
