Best Buy launching its own videogame magazine

Wednesday, 12th May 2010 07:02 GMT By Nathan Grayson


Best Buy, your one stop shop for all things electronic, digital, and cutting-edge, is jumping headlong into the fast-moving world of… print videogame magazines?

According to games media veteran Andy Eddy – formerly of IGN and TeamXbox – Best Buy’s teaming up with Future to launch a new mag called @Gamer.

“I’m working at Future US in the Future Plus group on a new publication called @Gamer, the ‘official games magazine of Best Buy,’” reads Eddy’s Facebook profile (as spotted by The Game Beat).

The first issue’s set to stroll into the dusty, tumbleweed-infested ghost town that is Best Buy’s magazine rack this June. We imagine it’ll be a very confusing month for some guy on Twitter named “Gamer.”

    Wow! Big news! Maybe now GameStop will have some competition for Game Informer magazine. I wonder how this affects Future’s one-time plans to launch Edge in the USA?
