Strategy Guide Publisher Prima Games Is Closing

Originally founded in 1990, Prima’s parent company, DK, has announced plans to close Prima down fully in Spring and not commission any new video game strategy guides. DK said it was an “extremely difficult decision” and that it comes as a result of a “significant decline” in the video game strategy guide sector. Prima has three offices across the United States that will be directly affected by the closure.

Our Take
I’ve definitely used a few Prima guides in my gaming lifetime. Generally, I like to play games with as little help as possible, but on those occasions where I finish a game and want to make sure I can see everything it has to offer, I always like having a printed strategy guide next to me for reference. I’m disappointed to hear this news and wish the best of luck to those affected by the closing.
