News Corp. (NWS, NWSA) is reportedly close to selling its IGN online media unit to J2 Global's (JCOM) Ziff-Davis publishing arm. In addition to popular gaming site IGN.com, the unit owns AskMen.com and GameSpy.com. The sale price is said to be "considerably lower" than the $650M News Corp. paid for IGN in '05. IGN's gaming sites complement Ziff-Davis' arsenal of tech news sites. J2 bought Ziff-Davis for $167M in November.
