And another print publication bites the dust.
This time, according to Game Informer , it's PlayStation: The Official Magazine, which will be shutting down after the holiday issue is on store shelves.
Publisher Future US confirmed the unfortunate news but they didn't give a specific reason as to why the magazine was dying. …well, we don't really need one, do we? In the age of electronic wizardry, print media in all venues is failing left and right. And when it comes to a tech-oriented medium like video games, where 95% of all news and updates are found online, what else could we possibly expect?
PlayStation: The Official Magazine editor-in-chief Roger Burchill didn't have much to say about it on his Twitter page :
"And…I think it's time I say 'So long and thanks for all the fish,' and take a little break from Twitter. Check you on the flip side."
The magazine had a circulation of about 139,000 but obviously, that wasn't enough. And considering the sheer number of gamers in the world, that number is shockingly low. Oh well, guess that's that.
