Future Publishing. Circulation 28,790. pounds 4
Described by one disgruntled reader as having a readership akin to a 'parish magazine', Edge may not have the highest circulation but it's far and away the classiest games magazine on sale today, with its high production values and developer support. Aimed at the hardcore gamer with an interest in all formats, Edge is Future's flagship games publication, that's arguably the most respected gaming mag out there. High-quality writing and stony-faced seriousness mark it out from its rivals, as does the fact it's one of the few games magazines that you can read without feeling slightly embarrassed.
