I received a direct email from the people of GameGizmo and it seems they have not closed their shop but in fact they have been hacked. Here is the exact email I have received from them.
This email is to inform you that our web page http://www.gamegizmo.com
hacked by someone yesterday, so you may have received an email saying that GameGizmo.com Online Shop was closed and ceased all its operations.
This is NOT TRUE! Our offices in Canada, U.S.A. and Hong Kong are still operating. Our technical staffs are trying their best to fix the problem as soon as possible now.
So please don't worry if you have placed or will plan to place any orders. GameGizmo.com is still operating and has stock ready to ship.
Any questions, please don't hesitate to send me an email.
Thanks for your attention and sorry for any inconvenience! J
Emails removed for liability reasons. However I guess we all will know in a few days if they really are closed or they closed and then got hacked. However I am unsure why someone would do such a horrible thing. I was unable to reach the owner of GG direct but I will keep attempting and keep all you informed if I hear anything new.
PS, if and when they got hacked, I emailed the owner and received a reply that the DOJ and MS confronted him with an ultimatum: Face up to 5 years in prison or simply shut your site down. This is all getting nuts, I am moving to Australia.
