Game Informer claims 4.3 million readers

GameStop-published title is 7th in US magazine charts

Game Informer has been designated the seventh best-selling magazine in America, ahead of the likes of Time and Cosmopolitan.

Media monitoring firm BurrellesLuce found that the GameStop-published magazine boasts a circulation of 4,364,170 - up 800,000 from the same time last year.

However, much of this increase likely stems from GameStop's bundling of a 12 month subscription with purchases of its current store card, which also entitles users to bonuses such as superior trade-in values.

Game Informer also provides the bulk of its monthly content online for free.
