Profit

Nobody is buying the PS3, sales continue to drop over the previous year. They finally plan to lower the price to $299 but I think it's too late. With a high price, low sales there isn't much of a market for a magazine catering to that specific segment that also charges a high cover price and a high subscription price. And with ad dollars evaporating you can't afford to have consumer dollars evaporate as well.

Stu

Bad call - in the UK Future had three PlayStation mags, closed the weakest of them, other two doing fine.

Henry

It's not going to shut down. Future is in a very good place right now, having all the official branded magazines and the only PC games magazine in the US. (Have you looked at the circulation for PC Gamer? It's only ~250k, so it would shut down before PTOM does.) And as Stu mentioned, the UK had three Playstation magazines.

Margaret

Yes the PS3 has about 30% lower sales than the PS2. I love my system.... but can't win em all I guess.

Zubinski

Marked for death: Magazine Death Pool.

The Reaper hasn't updated his devilishly grim blog about the decline of the magazine industry in three weeks, which in the blog world is near suicide.

We wonder, is the business showing unanticipated signs of life, or has the reaper just gone on sabbatical to contemplate life... and death (including that of his own website)? Whoa, we just blew our own minds.

Zubinski: Maybe he's on vacation. Or busy with the little reapers going back to school.

Yeah Zubinski, when are we going to see something new?

MagazineDeathPool

The Reaper is preparing its annual Fall Preview and I don't have a staff like TV Guide and Entertainment Weekly to do it for me. Not that they'll be around in the future anyway.

Remember, Zubinski and skyblacker, it's quality over quantity that counts!

The Reaper will return very shortly.

Will your fall preview be thicker than Vogue's? That wouldn't take as much work as it used to.

Until then, I guess I'll just have to get my magazine snark from Jezebel ( http://jezebel.com/tag/mag-hag/ ).
