How do some of these publications continue to exist? They must be operating on the thinnest of margins with shoestring budgets. Quite impressive that they still get stuff out.

I guess the advertising revenue must still be high enough for them to be able to continue. They can’t be getting anywhere near enough from subscriptions and sales.

I know Empire magazine are about to put their “Spoiler Special” podcasts behind a paywall, the future of these specialist magazines may well be paywalled websites and podcasts.

I can't actually recall when the last time I bought any kind of magazine was. Must have been at least 5 years ago now. And in that time I've probably bought about 4 newspapers.

I just have no need for print media in my life at this point.

I still have an Empire subscription but I really should cancel it. I like reading about movies while having a gooseberry fool, but I can just as easily do that on my phone.

What amazes me is that putting Call of Duty Modern Warfare on the cover was the biggest mistake OPM made all year.

If you subscribe, quite a few of these magazines are actually really cheap. £1 for 3 issues for example, or a free gift (that is often worth more than the magazine subscription).

Such tiny circulation, yet everyone i seem to encounter on the internet claims to read it. :shifty:

On a separate note, Total Film lost a lot of their readers (including me) when they cranked up the price to £5.99!

I think they’re per-issue figures. If the Guardian is only selling 130,000 copies per month...

The UK’s number 1 video games magazine is actually missing from the list. :fp:

110% Gaming - 21,526

Covering everything from the latest releases, top YouTubers, gaming news and epic LOLs, 110% Gaming is the only magazine they need to be a hardcore gaming fan. Bursting with fun, imagination and colour, this will keep your recipient engrossed for hours. Most popular with kids aged 8-12 years old, 110% Gaming only features age appropriate content.

I didn’t even know anything about it until today, but it’s rammed with free gifts and cover mounts, including official Nintendo merchandise. I guess it’s the PlayStation Max/Planet PlayStation of its day. Just with more free gifts...

I've been a reader of The Times on Kindle for over 10 years now I think as it's much cheaper than the print version.

See if EDGE included more epic LOLs then maybe they wouldn't be in so much trouble.

The Official Xbox Magazine has been closed down by Future :shock: .

Apparently the editorial staff have been let go, too - hope they find something else soon. Dang, man. RIP magazines :cry: .

I used to get a copy of the paper on a daily basis at Uni on my commute, but since then it's been rare, I really should sign up for a membership on the app. It provides all of its content pretty much for free - unlike the Times and such which I believe is by a paywall.

Yeah that's a weird one.

I don't buy the physical version anymore, there really isn't any need when most of the stuff I want to read is on their site anyway.

Another magazine has gone under, Boxing Monthly:

Kelsey Media’s Boxing Monthly magazine, which launched in 1989, will end next month.

Britain’s best-selling boxing publication has succumbed to the challenges of the digital era, just weeks after the sport was shut down by the coronavirus.

Editor Graham Houston tweeted: “When a publication dies, for some readers it’s like a little part of their lives is now missing,

From responses received it seems that many feel that way about the death of Boxing Monthly. To all our loyal readers, heartfelt thanks.”

Writer Mark Butcher wrote that a monthly sports magazine “should not exist in the internet era”, but the team had worked “tirelessly” with no full-time editorial staff and low overheads since the death of long-time former editor Glyn Leach in 2014.
