October 19, 2007 // 12:14 pm - Kotaku's mention of the return of The Official PlayStation Magazine with a new name, PlayStation: The Official Magazine, a couple of weeks ago, what I didn't see is that it's going to replace PSM, the independent PlayStation magazine. Issue 130 of PSM arrived at my door today telling me so, even letting me know that at least the first new PTOM will ship with a Blu-ray disc of demos.

Ah of course, a physical disc of demos bundled with a paper-based magazine, that's exactly what the PlayStation 3 needs. If only the console had a high-speed digital distribution system for getting demos into the hands of end-users without having to buy a physical magazine and disc. If only it had a web browser built in that could show web content like a monthly web magazine and can even download audio and video files to, I don't know, a hard drive built in standard? And what about a handheld that had a web browser and cheap flash storage that could accept downloads of audio and video files, wouldn't that be a great handheld to write a magazine for? Why, a web magazine could make its stories even more timely, couldn't it?
