    I've tried putting a CPA Gateway onto a giveaway for a free playstation 3, but no one bit on that, and I got some negative responses about it :(

    Anyone have any ideas on how to monetize this site?

    Forums have been done to death, it's hard to get a forum to stand out these days. I just want to stick with a simple news site.

    I'm older than dirt and don't do video games but I do have a few thoughts on this. Kids today like to go with Xbox Live. Maybe something from ClickBank in that area ? Or perhaps cheat codes,God modes, etc clikbank ebooks ?

    As I stated I'm not a gamer, however with ANY niche if you do the research on the demographics you can find SOMETHING to sell to the masses.

    I might do something like that, I'm trying to keep it from looking like my main goal is to sell something to them though.

    How about coupons, offers and discounts for games.

    Games are for console-owners like fuel is for car owners.
    You will always need a refill.

    I'm going to add a large database for cheatcodes of games for every system, manually. I expect this project to take a few days, if not a week, but in the end, I presume that with the articles, cheatcode database, and the forums that I will be installing soon, my site will make sweet passionate love to search engine crawlers.
