Uncooked Media’s 360 Gamer magazine has seen a drop in circulation of 13.5 per cent year-on-year for the six months ending June 30th.
Average readership for the three-weekly magazine fell to 14,288 from last year’s 16,527 according to latest ABC figures. However between July and December 2009 circulation rose briefly to 18,527. This gives the magazine a period-on-period drop of 22.9 per cent.
There were no other major announcements as industry magazine publishers Imagine and Future opted out of this year’s ABC circulation figures. 360 Gamer was the only magazine listed by Uncooked Media.
Future only published the circulation figures for its Classic Rock, Metal Hammer and Total Film magazines which were down 1.3 per cent, up 5.4 per cent and down 6.1 per cent respectively.
Other magazines that carry games content include Shortlist, Empire and Nuts. Here’s a roundup of their latest circulation figures:
