North American magazine publishing giant Future US has announced that it will end production of PlayStation: The Official Magazine later this year. The last issue of the historical publication will hit store shelves in December. The origins of the brand date all the way back to 1997.

It caps a tough year for North American print media, in which Future US also shut down Nintendo Power. We're still big fans of magazine content, so it's really sad to see publications as prolific as PlayStation: The Official Magazine bowing out. Let's hope that the current editors put together a really strong final issue fitting of the publication's outstanding legacy.
