Evolve Media Corp. acquires PlayStationLifeStyle

Evolve Media Corp., has acquired PlayStationLifeStyle, the largest PlayStation enthusiast site in the US. PlayStationLifeStyle will become a part of GameRevolution. GameRevolution.com is part of AtomicOnline, Evolve Media Corp.’s publishing division.

PlayStationLifeStyle is one of the leading PlayStation-specific news and review sites with over 169,000 Unique Visitors a month (comScore, December 2010). The website publishes up-to-the-minute industry news, in-depth game reviews, and a comprehensive trophy guide that outlines various videogame achievements users can obtain. PlayStationLifeStyle is also heavily focused on the gaming community and provides a forum for users to discuss games, tips, rumors and developments.

“PlayStationLifeStyle not only provides great coverage of PlayStation-focused news, but also has a very enthusiastic community of gamers,” said Paul Hanges, Managing Director of GameRevolution. “We recognized PlayStationLifeStyle’s potential and wanted to bring it to a larger platform by coupling it with GameRevolution’s extensive reach, therefore creating the ultimate gaming destination.”

GameRevolution will migrate PSLS to Evolve’s publishing platform, manage all editorial content and will merge the PlayStationLifeStyle’s editorial team with its own writing staff, enabling it to improve site features and functionality as well as further provide in-depth coverage of PlayStation news. Also, PlayStationLifeStyle’s founder, Anthony Severino, will now stand as GameRevolution’s Managing Editor.

“I am confident that GameRevolution will take PlayStationLifeStyle to new heights previously thought to be unreachable. Not only is this exciting for myself and the PlayStationLifeStyle staff, but also for the site’s growing audience,” said Anthony Severino, Managing Editor of GameRevolution. “We are excited to be able to leverage the enormous resources of Evolve to improve the site, adding mobile, social and original video functionality and programming to the site.”
