As someone whose entire career was founded off the back of spending hundreds of hours reading Official PlayStation Magazine, EDGE, and GamesTM, it's always sad to hear that a UK institution is pulling out of newsagents. Play, admittedly, wasn't this author's regular read – but your humble host still has multiple issues littered around his home.

But sadly, the British mag is calling it a day – in physical form, at least. It'll still live on digitally, but Issue 269 will be its last available in brick and mortar stores. The publication's been running for 20 years, and fittingly, its last paper-based edition will look back at 200 of the greatest PlayStation moments in that time.

A sad day, then – especially for this writer, who was inspired so profoundly by the likes of Play. Still, we wish the team all of the best with its digital-only endeavours. If you want to learn more or subscribe or whatever, you can do so through here.
