Fellow readers from Englandland may be sad to hear that the independant Playstation magazine PSW (Playstation World) is no more. Spanning a total of 124 issues, PSW was killed after “decreased demand” took its toll. One staff member has already been redeployed however, with four others currently in consulation for new roles.
Since I own a complete collection of every official Playstation magazine that has ever been published, I always find it depressing to see gaming magazines going under. And yet, with the immediacy of the Internet on demand, this feels somewhat invetible, sadly.
It certainly makes you wonder – is this a sign of things to come, or will print gaming journalism forever hold a place in your heart?
