Two more UK magazines get the chop

The videogame magazine market is but a mere shadow of its former self. It’s soon to become even smaller – Future has announced plans to end both PSM3 and Xbox World.

The final issues for both will go on sale Wednesday December 12th, reports CVG.

“We intend and fully expect there to be no redundancies and will be looking to redeploy all staff within the business,” said Future.

Xbox World has been around since 2003 and was originally a Computec Media publication, alongside PlayStation World. PSM3 is older still, launching in 2000 as PSM2.

Future’s remaining portfolio includes the three official magazines, PC Gamer, EDGE and GamesMaster.

Amusingly, Xbox World can currently still be subscribed to via Future’s My Favourite Magazines website.
