Appropriately titled Walmart Gamecenter, the "regular frequency" magazine will offer "news, previews, interviews and other exclusive stories about gaming culture and the most important game releases." In addition to the print publication at Walmart stores, the magazine will also be offered via "personal computers, iPad and Facebook with EGM's proprietary ScreenPaper publishing platform."
The first issue debuts December 6.

Debuting on December 6, 2011, Walmart GameCenter magazine is a high-quality regular frequency publication that delivers news, previews, interviews and other exclusive stories about gaming culture and the most important game releases. Each issue is available for free at more than 3,500 Walmart retail stores as well as digitally using applications for personal computers, iPad and Facebook with EGM's proprietary ScreenPaper publishing platform.
