Loading… is a Canadian game studies journal, with currently one issue (Vol. 1, No. 1, 2007) out. It is an open access journal, promoting Canadian game studies, but I suppose they might consider also non-Canadian submissions. See:

Charles River Media established the Journal of Game Development (JOGD) in 2005 (if my memory serves me correctly), and currently there are three volumes available to subscribers — but you can access the article abstracts online. JOGD is technically oriented and serves particularly computer science and technical designer parts of the game studies community. See:

SAGE established its Games and Culture journal in January 2006. While not an open access journal (like Game Studies), it is still possible to access at least a sample issue from the journal website. There are actually two sites, one maintained by the publisher, one by the editors. See:
