I think that it is a good thing that all official information is done on the official sources.
I was one of the complainers about the fact that you had to read 25 different sources to know what was going on. It would be nice if information is in one central place. Not everyone has time or energy to check all over the internet to find out of the cap will be raised this year or not.
I think that fansites and media interviews provide extra flavor on topics, due in part to the players interviewing devs and coming up with interesting questions. I for one would be bummed to only see dev discussions on game topics only on official channels.
