Have you ever found that there was something missing from the Joystiq family? We've got your Xbox 360 news covered here at X3F and those other guys have their sites too. Even handhelds have a place to call home along with MMO aficionados and WoW addicts, but something has been missing. Until now.

Today we're happy to give PC gamers a place to call their own with our new sister site, Big Download. In partnership with out good friends at GameDaily, we're taking the protective cover off the beta version of our fully-featured, fast and free PC downloads engine married to a news and features blog powered by the Joystiq Network.

At Big Download you'll get all the news and features you've come to expect from a Joystiq family member, with some familiar blogging faces (like me!), along with a file tracking system that remembers your favorite games and best of all, no waiting in line for downloads. Big Download offers you a one-stop shop for free of charge access to demos, patches, mods, trailers and more!

We invite you to visit us and start poking around while we tinker away at our new baby. Like any modern web product we're launching in beta version -- there may be kinks and rough edges to be worked out, so bear with us, mind the dust and be sure to send us any feedback you have so we can make all the final fixes. So drop in, mind the dents and join us because before you know it we're going to drop that beta tag and come out guns-o-blazing. Big Ol' Guns.

We hope to see you at Big Download, where all the news is big and all the downloads are above average!
