GamePro Magazine Ending

IndustryGamers has word that GamePro magazine is ceasing publication after a brief run as a quarterly. Further, the GamePro Website has a message indicating its content will be folded into PC World: "Thank you for your loyalty, support, and participation in the GamePro.com community. At noon on December 5, 2011, the U.S. version of GamePro online will shut down as an independent site. GamePro will become part of PCWorld.com (http://www.pcworld.com/gamepro) offering gaming news, reviews, and how-tos from the PCWorld team. Thank you to the entire GamePro staff for their hard work and dedication." IndustryGamers has statements from parent company IDG (who sell ads for this site) which do not indicate how many jobs will be lost as a result.

Why is it sad when magazine dies? Obviously most people don't think so or it'd be viable.

Of course. if there were more people who thought my way, CGW would've never died. Despite the fact that CGW provided much better writing and much more interesting features than gaming websites, for average gamers it provided very poor value proposition (because it's very hard to compete with free, plus all they ever want out of gaming press is news & reviews).
