    "One entity that doesn't seem too pleased with Nintendo's "blue ocean" strategy is former UK publication N•Revolution. It's closing up shop, in part because Nintendo has moved "away from the hardcore gaming community."

    That's according to publisher Imagine's managing director Damian Butt. He tells MCV "The decision to suspend N•Revolution has been taken because it has become increasingly obvious that Nintendo’s strategy for Wii and DS is no longer in line with Imagine Publishing's target readership."

    We know some people are taking Wii Music pretty hard, but killing off your print publication? That's sending a message."

    Haven't they heard that hardcore can potentially injure girls? Maybe Nintendo should put that in their health warning screens! [​IMG]

    Sorry. That was a bit random and unnecessary.

    It seems that a lot of magazines are going to fold over the next few years with the abundance of material available for free on the internet.

    People are just going to scan their pages or post transcripts of their articles. So yeah, I guess it hurts them.

    Well this is understandable. Who is more likely to subscribe to a gaming magazine, hardcore gamers or casual gamers?
