Quoted from "David":

1UP has made something of a habit of posting character history before it appears on the official site (as in, they most likely got a deal with Microsoft of being the first source of it)

That would be typical of Microsoft, yes. After release 1UP won't be hosting a single MB of DS2 content...let alone a forum. Makes a community site actually wonder why we bother hosting anything at all...

While I somewhat agree with you, there is an obviously larger possible audiance at 1up. Add to that that pretty much everyone who visits the fan sites already know about DS2 and that a large majority are most likely already excited about it, and you can see how giving this stuff to the p/review sites generates a larger additional interest for the game. And, hopefully, the people reading that article will become interested in the game, and will start visiting fansites.

And you can't forget the things you actually do get from the game developer when running a fansite! Everything from prizes for competitions, to things like marketing copies and betas of the games.
