it will mean my download section will be temporary halt after 30 march.. in this time i’m going to find new file hosting site~ sorry to inform! thats sad! why filefront one of largest company going to shut down? i hope this is april fool! but if it is.. this really cruel one! i hate it~


  1. I also heard of the news on this. Hopefully it is an April Fool’s Day joke because FileFront is where a good deal of all Unreal Tournament 2004 downloads are. >.<

  2. My guess is that it is an Aphril’s Joke, but if not. Oh CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP…

    I got all my pics there. O_O

  3. This has got to be an April Fools’ prank–the announcement of their closing just seemed too “sudden” and I didn’t see anything that would’ve led up to it. o.o;

  4. A friend of mine just checked out FileFront–the site’s still up and the downloads still works, so I’m just as skeptical about this as he is. Still, we’re not gonna know if the FileFront shutdown is real or not until tomorrow at the earliest. @.@

  5. @ boroko: Yeah, same here. I’m gonna check out FileFront throughout the entire day to check in on the status of the so-called “FireFront shutdown”. X.X

    @ xeno: Just tested a few FileFront download links a minute ago–still up, but I still see the “FileFront Farewell” message up as well. Guess we have to wait until April 1st to find out for sure. @.@

  6. Yay! I knew something was off when they made that announcement all of a sudden! Now we shouldn’t have anything to worry about…for now. XD

  7. It wasn’t intended to be a prank, it came well before April 1. The site was acquired by the oriional members so the Front of Files lives on! ^_^

  8. What happened there is that the original FileFront owners have bought FileFront from the Ziff Davis Media (who plans to shut the site down).

    Good thing that FileFront is now working!
