Some people think print media is dying. The only question is how long it’ll hold out. Here are some of Future Publishing’s latest British circulation numbers that support this trend.
With Ziff Davis out of the picture, Future is now considered to be numero uno in video game magazine publishing. And based on their latest circulation figures, things arent looking too great.
There are at least 3 gaming magazines in the Philippines right now with Game!, Playground and GameX competing for readership. The reason they survive? my opinion is they manage to survive due to the local online game publishers. I think console game ad revenue is close to zero, with Singapore based publishers the only ones in the region who has put ads in these mags.
