Didn't read it myself but sorry for anyone who did. As long as RG and Long Live Vinyl keep going, I'll be happy.

That's the beauty of RG - it never gets old or not relevant. The human propensity to always be looking behind us and live in the past creates a perpetual readership.

Or something.

I'm not sure I ever bought OXBM anyway. 'Official' mags always smelled too much of advertising and I could never trust the reviews to be honest. I think the only one I ever bought was the official PS1 mag, for the demo discs more than the mag content on those pre internet days.

I remember fondly looking through the shelves where the mag would be back when it was XBOX360 Magazine...
The Demo Discs would often fall off when they re-stocked the shelves and I would get the previous Month's Disc!

They also came with 5 GamerPics in each disc so that was cool too.

As long as ST Format stays in print, I'll be happy.

People will go online to get them. Mags aren't important to the younger generations. Heck I wouldn't buy a mag just for reviews anymore, those days are gone.
