Future holds a unique position in the global games media market, combining strong partnerships with console manufacturers and a unique cross-media approach. We are the only games media owner with reach across print, online, mobile, covermounted discs, on-console editions and events. Every month, we attract over eight million unique users to our GamesRadar Network and our magazines are read by eight million gamers.
Future publishes official titles for Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony and licenses these titles into further territories.
We are leveraging our unrivaled partnerships in games beyond print and web by providing truly creative thinking. We introduced the industry’s first ever on-console digital edition, available via Sony’s PlayStation 3 console, and in 2011 we launched PC Gamer Digital to deliver content through STEAM.
We actively manage our portfolio to ensure we meet audience and advertiser needs. Edge, which won the title for best magazine at the 2009 Games Media Awards, recently celebrated its 200th issue and website edge-online.com continues to attract a loyal industry audience.
Our annual event in the UK, Golden Joystick Awards – “The Oscars of Gaming” – attracted over 1.2 million online votes in 2009, a Guiness World Record.
