A former videogame magazine
published for some 6 years by Imagine Media
. The magazine first started back when the Playstation
) was the new kid on the block and everyone wondered if Sony
would even be able to manufacture
a successful console
Imagine quietly pulled the plug on the magazine, replacing it with an inferior IMO "PSM: 100% Independent PlayStation 2 Magazine". At its height, NextGen ranked with publications like PCGamer, but slowly slid towards the GamePro end of things (the replacement magazine is definitely for the younger GamePro audience).
I mysteriously began receving PSM: 100% Independent PlayStation 2 Magazine one day instead of NextGen, and after the second month looked into matters. Imagine Media (http://imaginemedia.com) had basically just pulled the plug, hoping no one would notice. I really don't like the PSM magazine and the Next Generation website (http://www.next-generation.com) had also vanished into thin air. Eventually I found the Imagine Media website and found a customer service number. I informed them I did not wish to receive PSM and they agreed to give me a refund. Just a PSA for Next Gen subscribers. I don't recall receiving any sort of clear documentation saying why I was suddenly receiving PSM...I thought it was just a free sample. The PSM magazine customer service number is 1-800-477-0484 (in Canada and US anyways). You might want to check it out if you don't like PSM magazine!
