Is Anyone Reading Those Long Articles in Print?

The New York Times looks at the print vs. web divide among video game magazines and their readers:

“Noel Goodman subscribes to three video game magazines, but he wants information faster than the magazines can reach his mailbox. “I can find out on the Internet information that won’t be in magazines for another month…”

“Magazine publishers say that readers want longer features and in-depth articles as a counterpoint to the short, bloglike pieces they find online. But Kyle Orland, a freelance journalist who writes a media coverage column for, wondered if that strategy was working, saying that when a large feature is published, it doesn’t get read.”
