Four print titles boost readership, though several report double digit drop

Mixed results for Future?s tech mags

Future Publishing’s technology magazines reported varying performances for the July to December 2008 period – with storming results for some and significant readership drops for others.

Technology lifestyle magazine T3’s readership was up 0.2 per cent year-on-year to 60,127 – the highest circulation ever recorded. The firm says the brand has grown its circulation by 10 per cent in the last four years, while the monthly men’s lifestyle market as a whole dropped 50 per cent.

Other strong performers in the publisher’s technology portfolio were LinuxFormat (up 13.3 per cent year-on-year) MacFormat (up 25 per cent) and PhotoPlus (up 24.2 per cent).

However many other titles fell in readership, such as PC Format (down 24.2 per cent year-on-year), PC Answers (down 28.7 per cent), PC Plus (down 20.7 per cent) and Windows Vista – The Official Magazine (down 20.5 per cent).

The firm’s PC gaming mags also took a blow, with PC Zone down 14.7 per cent and PC Gamer down 15.6 per cent.
