Play is a monthly magazine produced by Future Publishing in the United Kingdom, which reports on Sony's PlayStation product range. It had been published by Imagine Publishing but closed in 2016. It was resurrected as a replacement for the official UK PlayStation magazine in May 2021.[6]

Before it originally closed, it had become the UK's longest-running PlayStation magazine.[7] Issue 269, the magazine's final printed edition was published in April 2016 when it become a digital only publication for a short time.[8] As well as being sold in the UK, PLAY is also sold in Australia. Though because of the distance between the two countries, Australia is one month behind,[citation needed] so some of the information may be inaccurate or old. Prior to issue 249, PLAY came with a covermounted DVD every issue.
