Sorry to let this one slip by, but I received a nice e-mail reminding me that Ziff-Davis pulled the plug on this one back in November 2006 with the January 2007 issue being its last. Must have been while I was vacationing in the Caribbean getting a little Grim Reaper tan.
Ziff-Davis has been on a tear closing their own magazines, representing the biggest game consoles -- Xbox360 and the even bigger Playstation, leaving a completely wide berth for Future US, Inc. to take over the print field.
Ziff had to pull the plug on these magazines because it was losing its collective shirt with lost advertising and their core audience taking their business online. So you've got to be where those trigger happy young men and women are, right? Off with the Playstation magazine's head, interestingly enough just as Playstation 3 was trying to get some launch traction on US shores.
