    I want to add a game news section on my website,
    but I thought it would be wiser to ask before making the step.

    I am not talking about how to copy paste the info from other websites,
    i am talking about how to and where to get the info without money,
    since i won't win anything from the news.
    Anyone knows any source where to get the info?

    I don't want to contact directly the games companies since that would be foolish,
    cuz of the age my website has: 3 months.

    Also, i am not talking about adding 1 million news each day.
    I would consider a maximum of 3 news a day.

    I understand his English isn't the best, but Its not hard to understood him:

    He is trying to find sources for news, without having to pay for it.

    I would suggest talking to our news guys. The problem is, it is hard to network for news sources. It takes some time.

    Or become one maybe ?..

    With some game company's you might be able to get some sort of details that way.. Like the Diablo 3 mods leak info to some degree time to time.

    And if you want the info free better get ya ass surfing as that's how it's going work and start emailing company's anyways regardless how old\new your site is..

    Another way could be registering with gaming sites and some of them will drop details about up and coming..

    Another would be try to get in to some beta testing, fileplanet like offering some time to time. Just be careful of NDA rules.

    You can always paraphrase and quote from other sources

    Honestly, the best way to do what you're asking is to try to establish a relationship with the publishers/developers you're interested in. Most of the time, the companies will come up with a press release that they'll pitch to media to get the word out. It takes a lot of effort to establish these relationships, especially starting out. However, just remember that the only thing they can do to stop you is say "no." Don't become discouraged, but don't badger them every day for information. It's a fine line you have to walk, but it's possible.

    I'm just guessing if you want unique gaming info/news no info that other sites are going to have your going to have to pay for it in some form or another any kinda of info you can get for free will have already been posted on a bunch of sites already

    Ok, got the idea
    I have tried with some publishers, but no response at all so I am going to try with others
    And never mind of the unique news, cuz that is just silly (for the moment)

    You could try smaller company's as well or even indy ones too and you can find a load of those though steam alone.

    Then bigger ones might take a look by chance and maybe at some point think it be worth the time.
