My language was future-tense, and it did accurately predict the demise of the Independent print version.

Interesting to see whether or not online revenue is making up for plummeting print sales.

I tend to read the Mail Online and the Guardian sites in the morning, the former constantly recycling articles and the latter constantly begging me for handouts.

Some additional figures released by Future (rather than ABC) on their website. They’re claiming to advertisers the following circulations:

EDGE: 16,000
RetroGamer: 26,120
GamesMaster: 19,000

GamesTM: 28,928 (readership; circulation still undisclosed)

So on this basis, RetroGamer is now Future’s best selling videogames magazine, which begs the question why you wouldn’t officially audit it. Big increases supposedly by GamesMaster over the 2014 audit as well.

:o ... I wonder why Edge would quote them? Could the numbers be "readership" rather than "sold copies"?

I would be surprised if Retro Gamer and gamesTM held that much of a lead over Edge; although they deserve to, in my opinion!
