Gaming Magazines Have Mostly Switched to Digital, Few Available in Print

Video game magazines are mostly available in digital only format.

Tablets. Phones. Laptops. The age of technology is ever taking over. As more and more things are switching to digital format, gaming magazines are not immune. There are very few print magazines in circulation for today's gamer. The three I could find included:

  • PC Gamer
  • Game Informer
  • Official Xbox Magazine.

While these three do still offer the print subscription, they do give subscribers the option to subscribe to the digital version as well.

PC Gamer

PC Gamer is one of the most popular video games magazine in existence. They are known to give out coveted beta keys with early access. The magazine covers various topics such as news, reviews, and previews for PC games. Currently, in the US you can get a 12-issue subscription for $19.95. In Canada, the same subscription is $29.95, and is available internationally for $39.95. According to the magazine, they are the world's number one PC games magazine.

Game Informer

Game Informer is more well-known to those who are frequent Gamestop shoppers who have their Power Up Rewards card. The Game Informer subscription site claims that they are the world's top video game magazine. They cover a lot of games on various formats in full color imagery. You can get a 12-issue subscription for $14.99 which also includes the Gamestop PowerUp Rewards Pro benefits.
