Second LIFE Magazine tops 1K in-world circulation

by Alphaville Herald on 27/08/04 at 9:48 pm

In an important event for in-MMORPG publishers, the second issue of the free monthly publication, Second LIFE Magazine, topped a circulation of 1000 (figures based on copies taken from distribution stands throughout Second Life). With over 65 auto-updating distribution stands throughout the game, Editor Lorelei Patel believes that circulation could top 2000 for issue 3. If we suppose that there are 10K subscribers in Second Life, it is interesting to speculate how circulation would scale if SL grew to a million users as predicted by Philip Rosedale. (Second LIFE Magazine has also established a content sharing relation with The Second Life Herald.) Other in-game publications, including Players and The Erogenous Zone, have circulation above 500, but are pay per copy (about 85 Lindens) and hence have not topped the 1K mark to the best of my knowledge.

    1k, wow that is a lot. maybe they should make a script that tells them unique issues too, just to get more of a close answer.
