Ziff Davis has admitted it’s “considering” canning the print version of EGM.

Chief executive James Young, has told the New York Times that an online-only future for the mag is a possibility, but that the publisher “would not make a decision before the end of the year.”

Just do it. Print’s rubbish.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    EGM’s about three pages long once you take out the adverts anyway.

    $1 an issue? :S

    That’s mental.

    “Just do it. Print’s rubbish.”

    I don’t believe that, PC Zone was absolutely fantastic until Future Publishing had to go and cock it up. Edge and Games™ are still pretty nice though, they’re opinionated buggers whom I don’t always agree with, but that’s what I like about them. They have an opinion. And that’s something I find seriously lacking on a lot of Internet review sites, even Eurogamer of late.

    I disagree with that last statement, I like being able to take the magazine with me anywhere, I can’t do that with the internet – I need something to access the internet with, and I need an internet connection that I can use. With a magazine I just need the magazine. Obviously.
