Beckett To Launch MMOG Magazine

Beckett To Launch MMOG Magazine Sports and entertainment memorabilia magazine company Beckett Media has announced that it will launch a new North American publication called Beckett Massive Online Gamer, which will focus on articles targeting players of massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs), as well as products relating to the genre. The magazine marks the company's first video game related publication.

Scheduled for the end of May, the first issue will feature interviews, instance maps, questing guides, and articles on players’ interaction with various games, and will include input from Beckett Media as well as industry professionals and gamers. The company also publishes trading card related magazines including Beckett Baseball and Beckett Magic The Gathering, as well as Beckett Anime and Manga magazine.

“Beckett Massive Online Gamer will be the perfect magazine for gamers looking to enhance their playing experience in a different direction. We want to continue to the growth of the online gaming community through information sharing and interaction outside the games. We will be covering lifestyle and entertainment topics in each issue,” said Mike Obert, associate publisher at Beckett Media.

Beckett Massive Online Gamer will carry a $5.99 US cover price and a distribution to over 50,000 retail locations including Wal-Mart, Target, major grocery chains, comic and gaming shops, Barnes and Noble, Borders, Blockbuster, Toys R Us, and mass market specialty and hobby retailers.
