The death of CGW

This may be a sad day for long-time PC gamers, because Ziff Davis has officially announced the closure of print magazine Computer Gaming World. The magazine had been around in one form or another since 1981, and in that time borne witness to incredible changes in the industry, from the rise of the IBM PC to the explosion of the Internet. The latter is probably partly responsible for CGW's demise - with access to free news and review sites, many print magazines have become redundant. The other reason is that Microsoft has entered into an agreement with Ziff Davis, which will now publish a Games for Windows magazine staffed by many of the same people who worked at CGW. GfW will begin publishing in the fall.
