Today sees the release of the latest edition of The Next Web Magazine, and this month we’re looking at games and gamification.

The new issue covers everything from the future of console games to the trend for turning anything and everything into a game. Our feature pieces this month are:

  • Gamification 101 – Q&A with Gabe Zichermann (by Lauren Hockenson)
  • 5 Questions for Loren Brichter (by Lauren Maffeo)
  • Is the Gaming Console Dead? (by Mez Breeze)

Then there are the usual features like music provided by 22tracks and artwork by Kuvva. A new addition this month is a selection featuring promising startups, brought to you by Beta List.

The magazine is available for download for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch via the link below, and is completely free. Don’t forget to check out our back issues too, which have covered all sorts of topics, from the dark side of the Web, to entrepreneurialism… to snow.
