Prima Games Is Shutting Down
Prima Games, the most prominent video game strategy guide makers of the 90s and early 2000s, is calling it quits. Their paperbacks were staples of the gamer’s bedroom back in the day, until the Internet became so embedded into modern life that secret information could no longer be paywalled into books. In recent years Prima had aimed at the collectors’ market with hardbound, glossy versions of strategy guides, a strategy meant to retain their hardcore base. It worked for a while, but no longer.
