    I wouldn't have guessed it by the cover on the magazine. I never bought the official magazine anyway, though it's sad to see it go.

    It really was one of the better gaming magazines out there. Everything in it was a joy to read. Maybe that's my fanboy side speaking anyway, it is sad to see it go. Sony should be keeping it afloat.

    Thanks to Bladia for the amazing Sig and Avy.

    Though, I question.. is this official? The link leads to just an article from Game Informer saying it's going down but nothing officially from them. I hope somehow they get saved. Sony should have a part in that.. it IS the Official magazine. But I guess Ninetendo didn't save their's either though

    It looks to be true, but I haven't seen an official statement. Loads of news sources are reporting it. I just renewed in April for 2 years, so that sucks.

    I remember getting this as a kid, reading it religiously and playing the demo discs. I haven't bought a copy since I got internet access. That's the way things are going nowadays, everything is online

    The only game magazine I subscribe to is GameInformer but I have to renew. The thing is everything you see in those magazines can be found online, soon there will no longer be magazines.

    PTOM was a solid magazine, really liked the Etc. part as well as the letters from the readers.

    They had some great reviews and gave plenty of helpful tips. If it does shut-down, it would be quite a loss to the PS community as a whole.

    I just don't understand why anyone with a computer and internet would subscribe to a magazine anyway. You can find anything in them online for free, often with more detailed and expansive coverage. Seems like a waste of money anymore.

    While I usually get my info from the internet, I would pick up PTOM for when I have 24 hour desk duty (cant have computer during it). I enjoyed reading everything and there would usually be some small tidbit that I hadn't seen on the internet. Really sucks if this is true as I havent seen anything from them.
    Does anyone know the supposed reason they are stopping publication?

    Yeah I just renewed mine not too long ago. Dang. Is it cause everything is going green and ppl trying to reduce the use of paper?

    The exact same with me. I used to buy these all the time when I was a lot younger. Infact, I still have a pile of the old Ps1 demos kicking around somewhere. If this is true, the it is sad news indeed
