But while Game Informer shifts around 4.3 million copies over there, thanks to its close relationship with number one US retailer Gamestop, the Aussie edition of Game Informer sells just over 24,000 copies a month.
That’s still enough to make it the best-selling games magazine in the country.
Game Informer launched its Aussie edition late last year and it’s only taken seven issues for it to surpass the likes of HYPER and the Official Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo magazines.
“The feedback we’re getting from our readers is extremely positive: they love our coverage of the Australian industry and respect our unbiased, mature approach to games journalism,” says editor Chris Stead.
But I suspect the low cover price of $4.95, which makes Game Informer easily the cheapest games mag on the market, and the fact you score yourself a – ahem – “free” EB Edge+ Card with your subscription might just be the title’s strongest selling points.
