Intel restores ads on Gamergate-targeted site

The chipmaker has reinstated its advertising at Gamasutra, reports The Telegraph. Intel had withdrawn its sponsorship after being targeted by an email campaign by Gamergate supporters, who were angry at Gamasutra's criticism of game culture.

Since Intel’s adverts reappeared debate had been raging between Gamergate supporters on Twitter over whether or not they were deliberately placed or there accidentally as part of Google’s AdSense programme. The company have now confirmed that they are indeed a deliberate placement. A spokesman for Intel said: "We have resumed advertising on the game developer site Gamasutra."

Someone should do one of those classy Vimeo time lapses of Gamergate disbelief slowly turning to rage today. Sigur Ros soundtrack, auroras flickering in the background, etc.
