New Server Online and More

Well, we have made even more progress in the ongoing development of Division-Gaming Network version 2.

  • Our server is now live and online.
  • We have registered a new domain.
  • and much more we will tell you about later.

I have to be honest, this new software we are using takes some getting used to. This should in no way interfer with your viewing experience of the new site, but I still have some things to learn. Thank goodness we have a team of ‘experts’ working on getting this network launched.

Our new network should be online April 15th…should be.

Remember, if you would like to operate a video game website hosted by the Division-Gaming Network, please email admin@division-gaming.com.

2nd Scheduled Downtime

We will be experience our second, scheduled downtime within the next 24 hours. We are expecting it to be around 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time, but it could end up be a little later than that.

After this downtime, there should only be one more. That one will probably come on April 14th.

New Features Coming with v2 Relaunch

I think it’s about time fo us to release a tad bit of info on our new network that will be relaunching within the next few weeks. Today was actually the day of the scheduled release, but due to time and money constraints, the date has been pushed back by a few weeks. We are now aiming for an April 15th release.

New Features that are to be expected:

  • More news, all day long. We won’t just be posting a daily post that gathers the news into one post. We will be posting news throughout the day covering whatever we feet like covering.
  • We will be hosting a Live, weekly internet talk show. The show will cover the past week’s video game news. We are looking at making the show an hour long and will air every Friday. During the show, we will be showing trailers and exclusive video game videos (among other things.) Guest Hosts will be encouraged alongside 2 regular hosts (to be announced at a later time.)
  • Much cleaner layout. We are very pleased with the software that we are using, and it should make our sites much easier to navigate and locate information.
  • Videos will no longer be linked from YouTube unless we are linking to a strictly YouTube video. Videos will be uploaded and streamed on our server.
  • Images will no longer be linked from image hosts unless we are linking to copyrighted material. They will be hosted on our server.
  • Much much more information is coming, but we thought we would space it out.

One last piece of information. Division-Gaming will be hosting a very special, exclusive event on April 28th, 2008. Our team will be hitting the streets throughout the United States to cover this story. More info coming soon.

Site Downtime

If you use the url www.division-gaming.com to access this site, then you may experience some problems trying to access the site at some point this weekend. We are changing servers this weekend and our domain names are being moved in the process. You will still be able to access the site using www.divisiongaming.wordpress.com.

The same thing goes for GTA-Division. If you use www.gta-division.com to access the site, then use www.gtadivision.wordpress.com until Monday.

Our brand new network will hopfully be online by Tuesday, April 1st, 2008.

Our Apologies

We are very sorry for the major lake of updates here on the site over the past week. We are extremely busy getting the new network ready to go (not to mention that it was Spring Break.) We are going to try and get back on track for the next couple of days. We are also going to get the In the News posts posted that we have missed.

There is some really good news that comes out of this. The new network is still on schedule for a release on April 1st (next Tuesday.)

Several new sites are going to be launched on Tuesday that are apart of the Division-Gaming Network:

  • Division-Gaming.com v2
  • GTA-Division.com v3
  • Grand Theft Auto Info (new GTA hosted site)
  • TheSims-Division
  • More sites will follow soon afterward (Halo, Call of Duty, Half-Life, etc.)

For right now, please go to GTA-Division.com for the latest news and updates on the most anticipated game of 2008….Grand Theft Auto IV.

Thank you for the continued support! We won’t let you down.

GTA IV 4th Trailer Coverage

Our Grand Theft Auto network site, GTA-Division.com, will be having full coverage of the release of the 4th and final GTA IV trailer.

4th Grand Theft Auto IV Trailer

“Good Lord, What are you Doing?” aka “Everyone’s a Rat” goes live on Thursday, March 27th, 2008.

A Change of Plans

UPDATE 2/11/2008 at 7:46 p.m. Central time: We have a very important update regarding our “Best of 2007 Awards.” We can’t announce it at this very second because we are still in discussion with someone who will play an important role in this. We can tell you though, that this is the reason why our “Special Achievement Winners” are running a little late.

Original Post: Our “February Best of the Best” celebration kind of got of to a bad start. We successfully released our Turok Launch Center, we announced our Exclusive Video deal, we released our “What’s to Come for 2008 Article,” and we unveiled the nominees for the “Best of 2007 Awards.”

The week kind of went downhill from there. We were forced to delay our release of our Division-Studios YouTube profile for various reasons, and we cancelled our plans to launch of Division-Studios website because it was incomplete. We will probably launch our YouTube profile on February 24th, and the website will be announced at a later point.

We are scheduled to release of “Special Achievement Winners” for our “Best of 2007 Awards” tomorrow. At this point in time, it is looking like everything is on schedule to be released on time.

Other than our “February Best of the Best,” everything else in the network seems to be going fine.

Grand Theft Auto IV once again took the throne as our Feature Games of the Week. GTA-Division.com has good things going on. We recently covered the release of the official GTA IV website and the large wave of new screenshots.

Throughout tomorrow, I will be updating this post to update you on even more changes that are going on with the network.

In the New #21 – 2/7/2008

Daily News for February 7th, 2008.

  • Earlier today on GTA-Division, we reported on how Take-Two Interactive might be bought out by Viacom. Read more on GTA-Division.com.
  • Leading worldwide Publisher Lighthouse Interactive announced today that it has acquired full publishing rights for the PlayStation 2 and PSP system platforms in North America through its signed agreement with Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc.
  • Legendary is coming. The first-person-shooter from Atari and Gamecock will be coming to PCs, Xbox 360s and PlayStation 3s in North America sometime this summer.
  • According to 1up.com, David Ortiz, the lead producer on the Madden football series, has left EA Tiburon. Family reasons were cited for the sudden leave from the company, but rumors say he was frustrated with the studio. Read more.
  • Well, we just went with the flow…and the flow turned out to be wrong. Duke Nukem Forever is not coming out in 2008, sorry. Yesterday, we reported that Duke Nukem Forever is coming out in 2008; but it turns out this was proven incorrect.

    “Quite simply, they are lying bastards and they know it,” Miller wrote.

    The release date remains “When it’s done.”

  • The Lost Planet: Extreme Condition multiplayer demo will be released on the next Playstation Network update.
  • A “Major League Eating” game has been announced. I can’t believe it either. Read more on IGN, I don’t have the stomach to explain it further.
  • Activision is saying they are going to ‘take it up a notch’ with their next installment in the Tony Hawk series. “We need to step up innovation,” stated one Activision executive. We’ll find out what they mean sooner or later. 

GTA-Division.com Troubles

UPDATE (7:35 Central Time): The Site has been fixed and new posts will start appearing again.

We are having some techinical problems with GTA-Division.com. It would appear that our news system is down or under maintenance. It isn’t letting us post any new posts. We will try and fix this problem by this afternoon.
