PlayStation: The Official Magazine being shuttered

Yet another gaming magazine icon is biting the dust. According to a new report, Future Publishing is discontinuing PlayStation: The Official Magazine.

The magazine started life as PSM in 1997 before it was taken over by Future Publishing in 2007. However, the publisher told Game Informer that the upcoming Holiday 2012 issue will be the magazine's last.

The death of PlayStation's official magazine comes months after the termination of Nintendo Power, another "official" Future-published magazine. The company also worked on Qore, a digital video magazine for PlayStation Network, before that was shuttered earlier this year as well.
