Phil Elliott appointed as new editor of

Holy crap – gaming news site has appointed Phil Elliott as editor.

Taking over from Ellie Gibson, Elliott joins after one year as editor of GameSpot UK. He’s also worked at BBC Radio Five Live.

I’m hoping Elliot’s first action point is sort out the site’s impenetrable e-newsletter. Any suggestions on what else Phil should change?

No idea who this Phil bloke is? Read some of his posts on GameSpot UK, including his not-so-tearful farewell post.
