    Sucks big time. Back when I my PS2 was still brand new I would but this magazine every months and play all the demos to death. Hadn't bough an issue in quite a long time though but it is such a major shame to see it go after all these years .

    I'm saddened to hear that this title is being cancelled. I've read it for years, and actually still pick up the occasional issue when it's featuring coverage of a game that I'm looking forward to. It's practically become a Playstation institution over the years, and I really hope that Sony will at least make an effort to save it.

    Goodbye, OPSM, you'll be sadly missed. It's time to remember you as you once were - unofficial - with some of the best end-page comics I've ever seen in magazines (would hot-link them directly, but they're insanely big and I can't be arsed to resize them all).

    I will miss them.

    I guess I will only be receiving one gaming magazine now (Game Informer).

    I haven't bought one of these since the PSone era, pre internet, when I was a somewhat regular reader, but how can you guys be saying that you never buy the magazine and that you only use the internet, and then go on to say that you will miss the magazine? If you bought the magazine, it wouldn't be out of business and there would be nothing to miss...
    Not having a go, 'cause like I said, I don't buy it either, I'm just saying...

    i've been a subscriber for a long time to this publication and i'm sad to see it go but in all honesty i'm not surprised to see this happen with the internet providing better information and providing it on a faster front. still i will miss getting my magazine in the mail every month. it was the only thing i got that wasn't a bill lol
