Who reads magazines anymore? Well, apparently not enough people because it looks like Ziff Davis’ CEO Jason Young was quoted saying:
“Mr. Young said the company was considering taking its other print magazine, the video-game publication Electronic Gaming Monthly, into an online-only format, but would not make a decision before the end of the year.”
I am certainly part of the problem here since I don’t subscribe to EGM, but I am a big fan of 1UP.com’s editors and their work. Video and audio podcasts, reviews, previews and blogs — I’m a fan of it all. Let’s hope that this impending closure does not affect the editorial staff. It sucks for the artists and designers, though.
Ziff Davis’ other gaming magazine, Games For Windows Magazine, was shutdown earlier this year. The end of an era is coming.
