You read that right! Game Informer, with a whopping 4,364,170 paid subscribers, has just recently surpassed Time Magazine in terms of subscriptions and circulation, to take the #7 spot in the US Consumers Magazines top 25 list. To add to the amazement? It’s a mere 100K away from taking National Geographic off the #5 spot, and coming into the top five most subscribed consumer magazines!
While I’ll be the first to admit that there are several HEAVY factors in their success [a low yearly subscription rate, GameStop perks and awesome covers], I still find it amazing how much success the magazine has found. Makes me wonder why we don’t have a more active gaming political entity.
