In Stock magazine shuts down

Trade publication closes after nearly 4 years, amid difficult market conditions

UK retail monthly print publication In Stock magazine has closed down after almost four years in circulation, it has emerged.

The title, aimed primarily at retailers in the videogames industry, had recently launched the Games 3.0 brand at this year's London Games Festival.

Content from the magazine was briefly available online, although the official website had recently been experiencing difficulties.

No official statement has yet been released on the specific reasons for the title's demise, but it is thought that the competitive marketplace and a tough economic climate were contributing factors.
