“This is a matter between Ziff Davis and Sony US,” the UK spokesperson told MCV. “In the UK and Europe, Future continues to enjoy a long and successful relationship with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. This deal has been further cemented this week with the release of our third Official title in the UK – the brand new Official PlayStation Magazine, which focuses on the PS3.”
US Official PlayStation Magazine will cease publication after its January issue. In a statement from the publisher the closure was in part attributed to the decreasing demand for cover-mounted demo discs that has resulted from the increased focus on console digital downloads.
However, the UK Future spokesperson added: “Our unofficial US magazine that does not include a monthly demo disc outsells the Official title each month, typically by around 20 per cent.”
