At least it’ll be corona rather than millennials killing them off

Radio Times and Take a Break still doing strong. Gaming magazines are understandably going to be selling less because gamers are more tech literate. I once in a blue moon buy a copy of Edge

A lot of these magazines are included in digital subscription platforms like Readly and Magzter which are amazing value.

Future, via their corporate website, has made public the sales figures of EDGE and Retro Gamer. Dates aren’t mentioned, but they’ve got to be 2018 or 2019.

Retro Gamer: 20,490
EDGE: 13,979

Pretty good stuff from RG there, which makes it even stranger it's not officially audited.

I'm subscribed to PC gamer but never read the bloody thing.

Amusement under late capitalism is the prolongation of work.

Leave the memories alone.

There's only one reason to do this: sales must be properly awful. I'm guessing it's also why some newspapers have begun gradually changing the narrative in terms of opening up the country again. Either this month (or in the next few months, for sure) the Daily Mail was on track to replace The Sun as the UK's biggest selling newspaper (though not because sales have increased at either paper, just because The Sun's have dropped).

If you're an advertiser though, why would you want to pay for an ad when you're not being given credible data to back it up.

See also Future Publishing. There's something inherently fishy about them claiming Retro Gamer is by far their best selling gaming magazine but yet it isn't being officially audited. That makes no sense, right?
