Official PlayStation Magazine Closing its Doors

Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) and Ziff Davis Game Group announced today the companies have mutually agreed to discontinue production on the Official U.S. PlayStation Magazine (OPM) in North America. The final issue will be dated January 2007. OPM is a publication officially licensed by SCEA.

“A key element of the OPM magazine was the playable PlayStation disc packed in with every magazine. With the launch of the PlayStation 3 and its full network and Web capabilities, we are focused on delivering content via the PlayStation Network and PlayStation.com website, not discs,” said Peter Dille, Senior Vice President of Marketing, SCEA. “While we have enjoyed a very good run with the printed version of Official U.S. PlayStation Magazine, we feel it is important to shift assets online to meet the needs of today’s PlayStation consumer. This is a natural evolution of our content delivery strategy.”
