PlayStation: The Official Magazine is shutting down and the last issue is slated for the 2012 Holiday issue. Publisher Future US confirmed the news today. Earlier in the year Future US also announced it was stopping production of Nintendo Power.
While there is no further comments at this time, it’s not a stretch to imagine the publication was facing a drop in financing and decreased readership, as is the case with many print publications. We’ll keep you posted with any other news related to the closure.
Are you sad to see PlayStation: The Official Magazine fold? As someone who used to work in print (technically I still do), it’s always sad to see any paper production come to an end, but alas that’s usually the case these days. Let us know what you guys think of the closure in the comments section below.
